About Breakfast Point Childcare

At Breakfast Point Childcare Centre we're for children and their families

Breakfast Point Childcare Centre was founded on a vision of giving children the best possible start in life through access to high quality early childhood learning and care.

Breakfast Point Childcare Centre is an organisation that operates with strong business disciplines. We invest in our, our people and our purpose for the benefit of every child, their family and their individual early learning requirements.

Every day Breakfast Point Childcare Centre management and educators support over 30 families and the 35 children who attend our small 25 place boutique centre. It is our belief that small boutique centres offer a higher quality of childcare through a more individualised support system for children and their families. Small centres create a family atmosphere where the child is seen as an individual and where important nurturing (which is the basis of all early learning developmental) is supported.

Our vision is for all children to have the best possible start in life in order to achieve their full potential in all future learning environments.

Our purpose is to ensure all children receive the most informed, up to date and innovative early learning education possible.

“Childhood is a time to be, to seek and make meaning of the world”.

At Breakfast Point Childcare Centre, children and their families are central to everything we do.

In 2015 a consortium of passionate young business professionals (parents themselves) came together with the sole purpose of formulating an innovative Early Learning Childcare Environment. We have adopted a holistic approach to the childcare field in which we see how in today’s world communities are constantly evolving and growing. We believe as providers of early childhood education and care it is imperative to provide the most up to date information and early childhood education and care possible to the children and families who attend this childcare centre.

We will endeavour to ensure the current and future generation of children, irrespective of life circumstance, are active participants provided with opportunities to flourish and lead productive lives as adults, and we know that our strong commitment and participation in the early learning field will have a significant impact on this goal.

“It Takes a Community to Grow a Child”

We’re driven by three guiding principles:

  1. Children are central and the focus in everything we do
  2. Families are children’s first and most influential educators you are the backbone of the community in which we live.
  3. Community “It takes a community to grow a child” The understanding that we all need to work together to ensure the success of all future generations.

Breakfast Point Childcare Centre Management has set four strategic goals that drive our work:

High Quality: Ensure all of our centres deliver high quality early learning and care in a safe environment.

Inclusion: Enhance outcomes for children in vulnerable circumstances.

Financial Sustainability: Invest in our organisation, our people, our communities and our principles.

Management commitment: Build a strong capable, aligned and engaged workforce capable of delivering high quality early childhood education and care to the local and wider community.

Commitment to quality early learning and care: We consistently work to give children the best possible start in life through access to quality learning in our childcare centre we also advocate the benefits of investing in early learning through policy makers through active participation in the United Voice Childcare union and its represent ivies who work tirelessly to improve the overall childcare environment for children, families and communities, seeking to demonstrate the benefits through quality research and building relationships across the early childhood sector to improve collaboration and outcomes.




Our Program

Breakfast Point School Readiness Program

Management and educators in collaboration with parents have developed an Early Childhood Educational Program which focusses on supporting the needs of young children using a holistic approach to programming in order to prepare children for the coming challenges of kindergarten, school life and beyond. Our literacy and numeracy programs are incorporated into your child’s day at Breakfast Point the programs are formulated based on the child’s individual and collective interests from the environment in which they live. The program is innovative, motivating, engaging and supports each child in the development of self-motivated and positive attitudes towards learning. Our goal is to prepare your child for transition into kindergarten through professional programming and support in all areas of their development; numeracy and literacy skills, social skills including a strong sense of self confidence to achieve future goals and individual aspirations.
