Thumbelina – Edgecliff
A Few Words About Thumbelina Edgecliff
Thumbelina is a child care in Edgecliff that has been educating children under Active Kids Group since 2010. Parents can expect to find only the highest quality equipment and facilities awaiting their children. Nestled in a quiet leafy neighbourhood in Edgecliff, our child care centre is located a short walking distance away from Edgecliff station and 5 ways in Paddington.
Our Edgecliff child care centre currently provides quality educational programs for 33 children per day, ranging in age from 8 weeks to 6 years. Thumbelina has a strong community connection and ensures all families and their children feel safe and secure and have a sense of belonging throughout their Early Childhood journey.
This day care is divided over 3 levels and the children have designated areas for both indoor and outdoor play. Our 3 outdoor environments are designed to ensure all-natural elements have been considered and feature Australian sandstone throughout.
Thumbelina additionally has an extended family, ‘Coco’ our Budgie who has been with us since we opened. Our preschool provides a range of nutritional meals that are carefully planned and prepared by our experienced on-site chef. Each menu is multicultural in flavour, diverse in nutrients and nutritionally balanced ensuring all dietary guidelines for long day care services are met.
We believe that incursions, excursions and extra-curricular activities are an integral part of educating the children and developing each child’s broader understanding of the world around them. Our day care coordinator Katie Smith leads a team of quality and professional educators who provide rich, stimulating environments which reflect the needs and interests of our children.
As play based learning is at the forefront of our child care curriculum, our educators ensure that the design of our environment allows for spaces which are inclusive, promote competence as well as provide opportunities for children to be able to explore confidently and independently inspiring a passion for learning for today and tomorrow.
