Our values

We provide a warm and welcoming environment that nurtures each individual child, through meaningful relationships and play based learning programs that enhance and compliment the learning journey each child is already on with their family.

Our Philosophy has been shaped over the years by our educators, families and children along with contemporary early childhood education philosophies. Our centres weave together these different perspectives to deliver a service that is unique and tailored allowing us to truly get to know the children and families within our care.

We strongly believe that each child is confident and capable and design environments, experiences and interactions to enable them to succeed, build their social relationships and develop a stronger understanding of the world around them.

We pride ourselves on really getting to know our families and children to deliver the best possible early childhood experience we can

– Buckets ELC Centre Director

Our programs are delivered in state-of-the-art, purpose-built centres

We recognize the importance of early childhood for the unique period it is in a child’s life. At Buckets we support children to develop a life long love of learning and our educators are there to connect, guide and support children on each step of their journey within our centre.

We embrace the diversity and uniqueness of the children and families within our services and this naturally flows into our curriculums and environments. Choosing care for your child is such an important decision and we aim to support every family each step of the way to form an ongoing partnership.

Nurturing learning environments

We design authentic and engaging environments that delight each child’s senses and allow them to thrive.
