About the Centre
Phoenix Street Children’s Centre is a not for profit community based centre managed by BPA Children’s Services.
Having a broad multicultural family base, we have bilingual workers who are able to communicate with families in the following languages – Vietnamese, Arabic, Spanish and Maltese. Children are exposed to Vietnamese and English on a daily basis via songs, music, dancing and reading stories. We have a strong based parent committee that support the centre in planning events, organizing fundraisers and encouraging other families to be involved.
The educators at Phoenix Street Children’s Centre offer high quality care on a Full Time or Part Time basis. We provide a nurturing environment where children feel safe, secure and supported. We believe it is important to build a genuine connection with each child, having a holistic approach to children’s equality is what our educators strive to provide. Our emerging curriculum using The Early Years Learning Framework creates an innovative early learning program for each child.
Sustainability is an important practice at our service, we are committed to being sustainable via our practices, knowledge and appreciation for the environment.
Please feel free to contact the centre on 9310 2929 or drop into the centre in regards to registration.
