Play is essential to every child’s early learning and development. It enables children to make decisions, learn, take risks, and have fun in a nurturing environment. Our experienced team plan play-based learning activities in line with national standards. The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) is designed to engage in your child’s interests and allow them to experience each day at childcare in a new way, supporting their learning in the lead-up to primary school.   

Our Early Learning Curriculum also provides children with:

  • Sustainability program: Helps children develop and understand the importance of embedding sustainable practices into everyday life. Children learn about recycling, conserving water, growing food and the importance of protecting our planet.
  • Music and movement programs: Designed to develop fundamental skills that help support children’s self-regulation, memory, and concentration. Children learn to appreciate and develop an understanding of music – and of course, have fun.
  • Community engagement activities: Encourages children to interact with and discover their local community. We often have visits from community services, and we go out on adventures to teach the children about their local environment.

Zara-Anne

I started working in early learning in 2000. I joined the team at Brookfield Place in 2024. I am a diploma-qualified early childhood educator.

I come from a family of educators and teachers, so I have always wanted to work in this sector. In my career, I have learnt that we need to constantly adjust our teaching approach and support the individual growth of each child.

In a dedicated early learning centre, each day is a new learning with new opportunities to develop and grow. Our experienced team takes a hands-on learning approach and design intentional, structured experiences. We support our children to learn in their own way and at their own pace. We value families’ feedback and support families whenever we can.

I look forward to welcoming your family into our wonderful centre.

Rooms

Baby Room (0-2 years)   

Learning starts from birth. Our nursery Educators have created a welcoming and nurturing environment where each baby feels safe to explore and discover new things – through their senses, their communication cues and through experimentation. 

On any given day you can see the nursery children engaging in all types of meaningful play, including water play, music time, story time and more.

Toddler Room: (2-3 years)  

Our Teachers and Educators encourage toddlers to learn through play to help enhance their sensory-motor development. This learning happens through carefully planned group play, music, dance, games and reading experiences. 

On any given day the children can be seen developing their numeracy by building a tower, sorting objects, pointing and identifying shapes and patterns and participating in counting songs and games. Our team guides children through social skill development, talking, planning and role modelling. 

Kindy Room: (3-5 years)  

At Buggles Brookfield, your child will benefit from our enhanced learning program in Kindergarten combined with our play-based learning program. With the added convenience of long daycare hours, run all year-round. Perfect for busy families.

Frequently Asked Questions

A centre tour is a convenient way to experience the centre of your choice and meet with our qualified educators at a time suitable to your family schedule. Buggles also offers the virtual tour option in all our centres. Click here to book a tour online.

On the day of the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to observe practices and interactions within the centre environment. You’ll be able to see all the rooms and playgrounds, ask the team members any questions you have in mind, and get all the information you need to make the best decision for your child.

Buggles’ Family Support team will add your child’s name to our waitlist if one of our centres is currently full in your child’s age group. We will then contact you as soon as a place becomes available.

We also do monthly check-ins to review the availability, and you will receive a text message confirming if you’re still happy to remain on the waitlist each month. If you would like to get an update at any point, you’re welcome to reach out on our Web Chat or give us a call. 

Our Family Support team can also help you find more G8 early learning centres near you, with the same offerings at the Buggles centre you are interested in that have immediate availability.

It’s common for a child to experience separation anxiety when they first start child care. When you’re getting ready to start child care, you can help your child overcome anxieties by visiting the child care service together for a Stay and Play session, and easing into new routines at home.

Buggles uses Xplor Home as our family communication app. It is the best and easiest way to keep track of your child’s day.

After you enrol your child with the centre, you can utilise Xplor Home to book child care days, manage your account, receive the photographs that capture your child’s learning, learn about your child’s progress, as well as keep up-to-date with upcoming centre events and important information.

If your child shows signs of an infectious illness when they arrive at the centre or becomes sick during the day, you may be notified that you need to make alternative arrangements or pick up your child from the centre, and keep them home until they are no longer infectious. While we understand that this can be inconvenient, Buggles is committed to maintaining a healthy environment and reducing the risk of infection for all children.

Under the Child Care Subsidy (CCS), families are allowed 42 absence days per child, per financial year. These can be taken for any reason, including public holidays and when children are sick, without the need for families to provide documentation.
