Sea Urchins Childcare Centre is an early learning centre located in Harrington, New South Wales. The facility offers centre-based care for a maximum of 44 students at one time, caring for children aged from zero to five years. As of December 2020, Sea Urchins Childcare Centre meets all expectations laid out by the Australian Government’s National Quality Standards, reflecting a high standard of care and compassion across the board. At Sea Urchins, we believe in free expression and learning through play. We aim to create a welcoming, warm, and inspiring environment where children will develop resiliency, self-confidence, and pursue their interests with curiosity and encouragement. Services We are a long daycare centre set in a gorgeous, il lyric location surrounded by beaches and lush National Parklands. Our culture ensures children are: ● Respected ● Listened to ● Valued ● Encouraged ● Supported We embed and encourage sustainable practices in every aspect of our education and care. We recognise how important it is for children to feel involved with the natural world, explore the world around them, and develop a deep respect for our native flora and fauna. We also respect and acknowledge the rich culture, history, and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, incorporating relevant teachings and values into our curriculum. By following the Early Years Learning Framework, we will inspire every child to become curious, creative, cooperative, and persistent learners. We divide our centre into three rooms: ● Jellyfish (0-2 years, with a 1:4 educator to child ratio) ● Starfish (2-3 years, with a 1:5 educator to child ratio) ● Whales (3-5 years, with a 1:10 educator to child ratio) Grounds Our grounds feature a large sandpit, exciting and modern playscapes, and an expansive yard area for children to run, jump, play, and explore. Children will enjoy a wide variety of activities in our outdoor spaces, including exercise, explorative play, and experimenting with natural materials such as water, mud, dirt, and sand. Communication At Sea Urchins Childcare Centre, we deeply value family input and incorporate suggestions into our curriculum wherever possible. We prioritise collaboration with caregivers and parents, ensuring the best outcome for every child.
