We pride ourselves on high-quality education and care.
We know our children and families very well and love to ensure our families have a sense of belonging and always feel welcomed.
It’s like having a home away from home!
All of our educators have been with us for a very long time, which means we don’t have a high turn around of educators, which is very important when building relationships with our families.
Looking after our community is something we are very passionate about and we are very much involved in our local community, primary school community and charitable organisations.
It’s best to contact us directly at our service. That way we can assist you in calculating your gap fee aswell as any other information we require to get the enrolment process started.
We provide All meals and drinks at all of our services, nappy wipes, sunscreen, most incursions and excursions (a small fee maybe required to go towards a particular activity), STORYPARK subscription ( online parent portal)
Please ensure you pack a drink bottle each day so your child has access to fresh water throughout the day,
your child’s willow tree sunsafe hat (which can be purchased for $10), nappies (if your child requires them)
bedding (if your child has a rest throughout the day), a practical school bag and spare weather appropriate clothing.
Of course! All of our service’s polices, procedures, parent handbook and centre philosophies including our Service QIP (Quality Improvement Plan) can be accessed upon request through our service director.
We have an online portal for parents and educators to access called Story Park. Through this we can communicate with you, share your child’s learning and development and any important notices! You can also share with us too!
Building relationships and open communication with our families is very important to us so please approach our educators should you need to talk to us about your child.
We are all about helping you find your village, encouraging one another and opening our village to others!
We believe a community of people can interact wholeheartedly for your children to experience and grow, learning from one another and adding value to your children’s lives.
As a collective, we can encourage children to be active participants in their own learning.
Our warm, friendly atmosphere and our stimulating and creative learning environments harness your child’s potential in all areas of development.
Our ‘Seedlings’ Nature School was established in October 2020! It has been a dream of Willow Tree for some time now to offer an outdoor program for our children.
We have the wonderful opportunity to partner with The Australian Botanical Gardens, Mount Annan who have tailored a personalised experience for our Willow Tree Children.
Children who attend on Mondays can be involved in the program which includes adventure, learning, messy play, climbing, discovering, and be treated to beautiful wildlife encounters and flora sensory experiences.
Our ‘SEEDLINGS’ program runs in the Spring and Autumn Months – For more information on our Nature School please contact Miss Sara at the service
We strive to provide a setting with heart, soul and passion for learning of the world and each other. We encourage children to think and act in meaningful ways and to make a difference for our community and our world. At the very foundations of our practices, Children’s developmental needs are met in the most wonderous ways; through play, magical experiences, exploration and wonder.
We at Willow Tree would like to say Thank you to the Dharawal people for letting us share your land.
We promise to look after it. The land, the animals and the people too.
We acknowledge the Dharalwal people as the original custodians of our land and will strive to teach our children, families and educators….
