Star of the Sea is a not-for-profit Catholic Child Care Centre where children, parents and families are respected. A valued partnership thrives between the St Joseph Catholic Parish, Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School and Centacare Child Care Services. The Centre officially opened in July 2008 and is currently servicing approximately 100 families in Hervey Bay and the surrounding.
Our Centre is air-conditioned and caters for 75 children from 6 weeks to school age. The quality outdoor play space is an area where children can engage with the natural world, educational resources and with equipment that supports their learning and development.
We provide a place where children are supported to explore, be challenged and develop a positive sense of self.
- Experiences that support children`s learning through play.
- Partnerships with parents that foster continuity of care and learning between home and the childcare centre.
- An environment characterized by warmth and respect among management, staff, families and children.
- An environment that promotes the safety, health and well-being of children, staff and families.
- Opportunities for parent participation in programs and centre activities.
The Centre has also been rated as ‘Exceeding’ through the National Quality Framework Assessment and Rating process.
I fully recommend the centre to your family. I hope our website is helpful, feel free to contact me for any enquiries.
