Nestled in the friendly country community of Dayboro, less than a minute’s drive from the local primary school, lies Brisbane’s best kept child care secret, Barefoot Early Childhood. We put a concerted effort into creating a service that moves away from corporatisation and back to a more homely, heart centred program and environment. We recognise that a child’s time and experience in child care represents a significant part of their childhood. We take this responsibility very seriously, and strive to provide a haven that is still filled with the wonders of childhood, and leaves our children with happy memories to last a lifetime.
Our playgrounds incorporate a creek bed, mud pit, tree houses, climbing trees, chook pen, fruit trees, vege patches and herb gardens and a mini farmyard with a miniature goat and a miniature pony that the children feed, groom and ride.
Because we believe that all children shine in different ways, our curriculum includes weekly visits from our resident artist, our yoga teacher, our horse riding teacher and our bushcraft teacher. This is all included in our one affordable and competitive daily fee, which attracts Government Child Care Subsidies.
We keep our numbers low so that every individual receives the love, care and attention they deserve. There is no getting lost in the crowd at Barefoot. Our Nursery caters to our youngest children and provides a warm, calm environment reminiscent ofa beautiful home Nursery. We believe that babies deserve a wonderful outdoor environment just as much as older children too, so we also ensure that they have many beautiful and natural spaces to safely explore.
We offer a government accredited Kindergarten Program, run by a qualified Kindergarten Teacher. Our goal is to send our children off to Prep with confidence, strong social and communication skills and resilience. We work closely with our localschools to make sure that our children’s transition to Prep is a positive and exciting experience.
Understanding how busy life can be for our families, we offer healthy and delicious meals and snacks and opening hours that span from 6.30am until 6.30pm. We nurture children from birth through to school age.
If you are seeking an authentic childhood experience wrapped in love for your special little person, we would love to meet you.
