What do I need to bring?
We encourage parents to pack a change of clothes (more if your child is toilet training), a hat (sunhat or beanie depending on the time of year), a healthy and nutritious lunch, a bottle of water and any milk or formula your child may need. Children may also bring a comforter and/or pacifier if they will need these to sleep or for comfort.
What extras does the centre provide?
The Centre provides sunscreen and baby wipes. Families will need to provide food, nappies and any milk bottles your child may need.

Sunhats and sleep mats are available for purchase from the office upon enrollment.

How can I contact you in case of an emergency?

What is your daily structure/approach?

Our high quality programs are designed to accommodate the needs of busy working parents by being affordable and flexible. We provide an environment that will give you complete peace of mind when it comes to the welfare of your child. At Footprints we use a play-based approach to learning, offering a variety of outdoor and indoor activities. We will nurture your child’s physical, intellectual and emotional wellbeing by really getting to know who they are and what they are interested in doing whilst getting to know who your child is.

What food do you serve the children?

We are a lunch box service, which means your child will be given the food you pack for them. We also provide breakfast for any children arriving before 8am which is a choice of Weetbix or toast. Children may also eat food that they make during learning experiences.

Lunch boxes need to be packed with regard to our Food and Nutrition Policy and this will be discussed with you during your Orientation Process.

How many staff members do you have?
Footprints currently has a team of 23 passionate educators employed at the service.
