Frequently asked questions

What is the ratio of staff to children at your Toowoomba centre?

Choosing a childcare centre with a low staff to children ratio is crucial. At our childcare centre in Toowoomba, we maintain a low staff-to-child ratio to ensure the safety and personalised care of each child. Our specific ratios, however, may vary depending on the age group of the children.

What is included in the childcare program?

Our program at Aurrum Kids’ Toowoomba childcare centre is designed to provide a comprehensive and holistic learning experience for your child. It includes age-appropriate educational activities, outdoor play, incursions and excursions, nutritious meals, social interaction and plenty of opportunities for creative expression. We tailor our programs to cater to the developmental needs and interests of each age group, from infants to kindergartners.

Do you offer incursions or excursions?

Yes, we do! At Aurrum Kids, we believe in providing enriching experiences for our children to ensure that they receive the best childcare in Toowoomba. We offer both incursions and excursions as part of our program. Incursions involve bringing external educators or performers to our centre for special workshops and activities, like yoga sessions or language classes. Excursions involve taking children on supervised outings to explore, interact with and learn about their local community.

What is the routine for rest and sleep like at Aurrum Kids?

We understand the importance of rest and sleep in a child’s development and to minimise the risk of children getting sick at childcare. Our Toowoomba childcare centre’s routine for rest and sleep is carefully structured to ensure that each child gets the appropriate amount of rest they need. We provide comfortable sleeping areas and follow individualised sleep schedules, taking into account each child’s sleep patterns and needs.

Our Toowoomba childcare educators are highly qualified and dedicated professionals who are passionate about early childhood education. They hold relevant qualifications, including Certificate III and Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care, and they undergo continuous professional development to stay updated with the latest teaching practices.

What is CCS and how can I apply for it?

CCS stands for Child Care Subsidy, a government program in Australia that provides financial assistance to eligible families to help with the cost of childcare. To apply for CCS for your daycare in Toowoomba, you will need to visit the MyGov website or contact the Department of Human Services. Our friendly staff can also assist you with the application process and provide guidance on eligibility criteria.

Any advice on saying goodbye in the morning?

Saying goodbye is often difficult, especially when sending your child to daycare. When starting your daycare in Toowoomba, we recommend establishing a consistent and positive morning routine. Spend a few extra minutes with your child to ease the transition, offer a hug and a reassuring word and let them know when you’ll be back to pick them up. Our experienced educators are also skilled in helping children settle in, so rest assured they will receive support during this time of transition.

How do I stay in touch?

At Aurrum Kids’ Toowoomba childcare centre, staying connected with your child’s activities, interests, and development is a priority. Our Teachers and Educators make sure families are updated on their children’s activities, interests, and development through the Parent Portal in KinderM8. In addition to the Parent Portal, you can also reach out to us in person, via phone, or by email. We also schedule regular parent-teacher meetings and events throughout the year to ensure that you are well-informed and involved in your child’s growth and development.
