Acknowledgement of Country
We would like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation who are the traditional custodians of the land on which Pooh Bear’s House stands. We wish to pay respect to their Elders, both past and present, and further acknowledge the important role that Indigenous people continue to play within our communities.
Letter from the Director
Pooh Bear’s House is a privately owned childcare centre that provides supreme quality child care by employing professional, highly trained staff within our amazing facilities, which reflects our commitment to caring for children. Our staff are trained to respect the self-esteem and individuality of each child, by catering for their interests, needs and abilities. Through play-based learning experiences, children will confidently explore, investigate and be curious about the world around them, encouraging lifelong learning. We believe, families are the most important influence in a child’s life and are the primary source of information. Therefore, we encourage parents to be actively involved in the centre, contribute ideas, and take an interest in their child’s development and growth. Together we can achieve the highest level of childcare.
