At Birra-Li we value the relationships between children and their families and support families as children’s first and most important teachers. To enhance and support this, communication and relationships between educators and families is of utmost importance. We will always engage in shared decision-making ensuring family views are respected and used in relation to children’s learning, development and wellbeing. Respecul, responsive and reciprocal relationships are central to children’s education and care.
We endeavor to create and maintain a safe, healthy, inclusive environment that supports children’s Agency and enhances their learning.
Providing A Safe Environment For Children To Grow
We believe childhood is a time for being here and now and not solely about preparation for the future, our educators will include children’s perspectives in teaching and creating our programs to enrich children’s learning, balancing child and educator-initiated experiences. Each child has unique interests and strengths and will develop at their own rate.
Being not for profit we can ensure our service is managed with only the best interest of our children, families and community. We believe children are valued members of our community and the most important part of our future. For this reason we will continue to foster relationships within our community and educate our children to ensure their histories, cultures, traditions and knowledge are valued and respected.
What Our Families Are Saying
“Our son has just started his fourth year and Birra Li and I’m continually surprised by the amazing activities he participates in and the love and care he receives from all the staff. Thank you for taking such great care of Charlie.”Gillian & Kim
“Birra-Li has provided our two young boys with a safe, supportive, fun and engaging ‘second home’. We chose Birra-Li because when we walked through those doors for the first time, it just ‘felt right’. The consistency of Educators is excellent – there has been little to no turn over of staff in the 2.5 years that we have been attending the center. Our boys quickly built strong bonds with their Educators, and the Educators have been very good at supporting their physical, social and emotional development. With no family based close to home, we are very grateful to have this support system of professionals to help our boys grow during these crucial early years of development”.Nicola & Mark
“Birra-Li has been a game changer for my family – I have used other Day-care facilities before with my eldest son, however the care and protocol that Jacinta and the girls provide has made the transition so easy for my 5-month-old daughter! And as a Mum returning to her career, the staff have made it so easy for me to trust them with my baby! Thank you, ladies.”
