At Buggles Childcare Spearwood, we believe that every child is born with an amazing potential, a wide range of abilities and are capable of great things. We create an environment that fosters learning, co-operation, growth and respect for all involved. We consider that educating and caring for young formative minds is a great privilege and we take pride in implementing and practicing programs and activities that are renowned as “Best Practice”.
Our aim as dedicated and passionate educators is to provide a rich environment filled with learning opportunities, where children can work together with peers and educators to co-construct a curriculum that captures their capabilities and enables them to reach their full potential. This has led us to incorporate the ethos of the Reggio Emilia Approach that understands that each child is a capable and competent member of society and our role as educators is to provide the opportunity and the educational support that will enable each child to both consolidate and develop further skills. We believe that engaging children in early positive learning experiences, helps build success for future life.
We believe that every child in our care should feel a strong sense of wellbeing and belonging. Not only does this include the strong and nurturing relationships we build with our children but also includes a healthy diet, emotional wellbeing, a sense of safety, rest and relaxation and an invigorating environment. The environment at Spearwood plays a vital role in the education of our children. They are designed to be stimulating and are modeled to encourage curiosity, thought and learning. We believe that the environment is the ‘third teacher’ and therefore it is essential that we set up the environment in a manner that leads to engagement and exploration.
At Buggles Spearwood, we acknowledge and understand the crucial role that families play in the early years of a child. We encourage and facilitate a high level of family participation, which we believe gives way to positive and healthy learning experiences. We have long standing educators who support and understand the dynamics of children and families.
All 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.

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to consider Buggles Spearwood for your child’s Early Learning journey. Firstly let me introduce myself – my name is Brooke, I am the Centre Manager and have been fortunate enough to be working in the Early Childhood Sector for roughly 15 years, over this time I have developed a huge passion for working with families and children to reach the best quality outcomes for children.
I believe that to provide Quality care for each individual that we work alongside all families in a cohesive and collaborative relationships to provide the most consistent and positive care we can to ensure that each and every induvial can have the confidence to grow and develop a strong foundation for learning.
I believe that each child is an individual and as an Educators our role is to help guide and develop each child’s strengths, interests, skills, abilities and knowledge to extend their learning. Children learn best through play, this means that when you enrol at Spearwood you can expect that your child will be provided with provocations for them to discover, create, imagine and explore.
