About Coopers Plains Childcare
Days /Hours of Operation
The Centre is open Monday to Friday, 52 weeks a year excluding public holidays and Brisbane Exhibition Holiday. The Centre opens at 7:00 am and closes at 6.00 pm
Long Day Care
Our service offers a long day care environment where care is available between the hours of 7.00 am to 6.00 pm, Monday – Friday. In order for us to maintain continuity of care and consistency for the children, attendance must be booked in advance and charges apply on a daily basis whether the child attends or not, or attends for a part of the day only. Educators in each age group facilitate an educational program based on the Early Years Learning Framework and the centre philosophy, each day of your child’s attendance.
Schedule of Fees
We operate an OPEN DOOR POLICY, where parents and family are welcome into the Centre at ANYTIME. Parent participation sends strong positive messages to your child that you support them and are part of the child care environment. There are many levels of PARENT PARTICIPATION and we appreciate that time is of a premium for all parents, but we will be willing to accommodate any form of involvement you may desire to assist you and your child, which will ultimately benefit the whole Centre. The staff sincerely wishes for you and your child to be happy and feel welcomed at our Centre. Be aware that a three way relationship between parents, care givers and the child exists in this setting. Communication is a vital ingredient to the success of this partnership.
