We are very proud to announce the opening of the Stella Bella Children’s Centre, an exciting new concept for care and education of young children aged 0-5 years.
The centre is operated by the Stella Bella Little Stars Foundation, a non profit organisation in Canberra.
Just opened in March 2017, in Maryborough Street Fyshwick, our centre will be an an inclusive childcare facility offering mainstream childcare rooms, and a specialized respite and occasional care unit for chronically ill (non contagious) babies and children.
Our unique centre will offer:
- Long day care in the mainstream rooms and occasional and respite care in the special care unit.
- A flexible and family centered approach to service delivery encouraging parental input into the unique care requirements for each child.
- Beautiful, Steiner influenced rooms and gardens to encourage self directed play, learning and adventures in a variety of nature inspired spaces.
- A holistic approach to care and learning, including the natural and social environment, nutrition and physical health.
- A multi disciplinary team of staff including early childhood educators and health professionals, with a focus on continual staff skills enhancement.
- Wholesome, delicious meals and snacks provided by our in house cook, using fresh produce picked from our own gardens.
- Hospital grade standards in hygiene practices and cross infection prevention.
- Opportunities for children with complex medical conditions to experience the joys of childhood in a safe, happy and nurturing environment and to provide their caregivers with much needed respite. Each child’s specific care needs will be taken into consideration with a care plan made in consultation with the parents or carers.
- The opportunity for children with no health issues to benefit from our creative childcare structure and to learn about inclusion and diversity in their community.
- Assistance in reducing isolation for families with a chronically ill child.
- Extra care services, and opportunities for all of our children and families to participate in regular family events and to be part of a kind, caring and inclusive community.
We are very excited to be launching this wonderful new concept in children’s education and care, and welcome you to join us on our journey.
