Buggles Childcare Cherry Court

About Us

At Buggles Cherry Court, we are passionate educators and caregivers who provide your children with the best possible educational start in life. We are determined to continually strive and imbibe practices and programs considered to be best practice and which are designed to nurture, educate and support children. We believe all children are unique and we cater to meet their individual needs.

Throughout Cherry Court, there is a purpose to the design, programs and spaces used. Areas have been created to promote children’s research and autonomous discovery and cater to both individual exercises and interactions within small groups. They also offer opportunity for privacy and quiet experiences ensuring that children receive ample rest and relaxation. We use each space imaginatively and with careful consideration by having a very limited use of commercial toys and by promoting the use of open-ended resources. We nurture a sense of respect for the environment and teach children to live, learn and behave in a sustainable, calm and loving manner.

At Buggles Cherry Court we believe that learning is fun and aim to provide a large range of activities that cater to your child. Our curriculum and programs are based on the Reggio Emilia Approach to early education, which sees children as capable and competent individuals. As educators we are passionate in providing the materials, the environment and the educational support that will enable each child to both consolidate and develop further skills. We encourage confidence in children to learn and express their thoughts and ideas through various cues like body language, art, drama, music, and dance.

Your family is as important to us as are your children so we listen to your ideas and suggestions. Family involvement and participation is highly encouraged and fostered at Buggles Cherry Court. We believe in surrounding your child with love, care and happiness in a safe and nurturing environment.

We employ the very best educators at Buggles Early Learning and Kindy. Our educators hold qualifications from Certificate III and Diploma in Children’s Services through to BA level Early Childhood Qualifications as well as speaking many languages. Our educators are professional practitioners and observe closely, listen to children carefully and give value to their ideas and then create strategies to build on their interests.

Centre Manager Profile

Mel Gereke

My name is Mel and I have been working with Buggles for over 9 years, starting as a Certificate III Assistant and then completing my Diploma and most recently becoming the Centre Manager at Buggles Cherry Court in April 2015. I am also currently studying my Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood.

I believe that being an Early Childhood Educator is one of the most important jobs in the world. It allows us the privileged of working with children and watching them grow and learn, developing into the people they will grow up to be.

I believe every child has the right to a safe learning environment and my team and I strive every day to provide this for every child at Buggles Cherry Court. Through our implementation of the Reggio Emilia Approach to learning, we strive to provide a high quality interest based learning environment for children of all ages from 6 weeks to 5 years as well as for our before and after school program.

The team at Buggles Cherry Court are a passionate team who are dedicated to providing the best education and care to the children in our centre. They work in partnership with families to ensure the child’s culture and family life is included in our centre and we work hard to ensure there is continuity of care from home to the centre.

Please feel free to drop by the centre for a tour and to meet the team. We would love to have your family join the Buggles Cherry Court family.

Testimonials

See what some of our parents say about our centre:

“Thank you for taking great care of both our children over the past few years. Before we started our kids at Buggles I thought that no one could look after our precious little babies and keep them as safe and happy as my wife and I could and I was reluctant to try.

However from the day we started at Buggles after meeting all the nice staff there I never had any doubts. Your staff are wonderful and my wife, kids and I have grown very fond of them over the past few years.

We are so happy that such a great team has shared in raising our kids at this most important stage in their lives.”

– Jamie Reed

 

“Can’t say enough about the carers in the Kindy room, Phoenix, Sarah and Karen are loved by my child. They make both of us feel very welcome.”

– Marc and Sophie Pascal

 

“Very, very happy I am now sending my kids to Buggles. The centre and staff are fantastic and friendly. In my opinion there is no centre that matches.”

– Joey Saldana
