Our babies program is designed to develop the child’s awareness of themselves and the world around them within a warm, caring environment.

Routines are an intricate part of a baby’s day and our routine will reflect each child’s development, needs and interests. All routines that are kept at home, such as feeding, bottles and sleeping times, are carried through in your child’s day at the centre in order to best meet your family’s needs. Unlike other centres, Pippies at Wamberal’s nursery will have a homelike feel, focusing on providing a space where children feel a sense of belonging and comfort whilst in care.

Our focus is on providing secure and loving relationships between educators and children to foster the child’s confidence and potential.

Our quality programs focus on sensory learning and development which prepares children for future learning.

Pippies at Wamberal provides safe and easy access for parents and carers to drop off and pick up the children.  There is plenty of parking and access to the centre is off the street so you can be reassured that pick up and drop off will be safe and stress free.

Parents have the opportunity to be involved in Pippies in lots of different ways. These may include attending one of our parent information meetings, assisting with fundraising, or making suggestions to be included in our daily program. We also encourage parents to share their skills with the children by organising a time with the staff, to come in and do a cooking activity, teach the children a new song, or read a story – whatever you feel comfortable doing.

If your child is having their first day at Pippies, we believe that it is in the child’s best interest that they be picked up after lunch, as the first day can be overwhelming for a child.
