Centres (Barrack Heights Community Preschool)
IMAGINATION. COURAGE. INTEGRITY. RESPECT.
We have a strong core team of 11 full time long term educators and our director has been with Big Fat Smile for 14 years. Many educators have extensive experience working with additional needs children and have strong networks with local allied health professionals. They work alongside them to provide early intervention for the children and support to their families.
This shows our team values and supports the whole family, as well as providing services to the enrolled children. Our curriculum focus is on the needs of the children, supporting their developing interests, skills and abilities, while ensuring fun, freedom and a little bit of quirkiness.
The commitment from our team is without doubt evident in all our practices and the delivery of programs in the curriculum.
