Taking the government healthy choices program, Munch and Move, as our guide, our onsite cook provides delicious meals prepared on a six-week rotating menu. Yummy treats like Tex Mex Casserole, Tuna Bake and Spaghetti Bolognaise are among the children’s favourites.
Our educators model healthy eating behaviour and physical exercise, and talk about the importance of a healthy lifestyle to the children. We cater to any special dietary requirements – whether it’s allergies, cultural or medical needs – so please feel free to chat with us about your child’s needs.
We have a stimulating indoor and outdoor environment, and the children particularly love our new Bali hut!

At Kids Academy Glenmore Park, we believe in the importance of educating children about sustainability. We put this into practice by keeping colour-coded recycling bins in every room. We also demonstrate good habits, such as turning off lights and taps when not in use. The kids enjoy tending to our worm farm and benefit from a local council member visiting to tell them how it works. We also have a visitor who presents a show using recyclable materials.
Children with Additional Needs
We welcome all children with a wide variety of abilities, backgrounds or needs. If your child requires extra medical, emotional or learning support, we will tailor our care for them and work closely with you to ensure they have a smooth transition into our centre. This includes seeking support from other networks or professionals to bridge any gaps in our service delivery.
Some of the additional needs and support which can be provided at our centre include but are not limited to:
- English as a second language
- Autism spectrum
- Physical disabilities
- Minor or serious medical conditions
- Emotional issues
Our team cultivates a warm atmosphere of inclusion through continuous improvement and open communication. We are confident that your child will benefit from our dedicated approach to care and education.
Please speak to our staff about your child’s individual needs and how we can accommodate them.
Together we can create a plan to help them reach their full potential.
Child Safety & Welfare
All aspects of our operations are in line with the National Quality Standards and the Early Years Learning Framework. This includes our Health and Safety policy. All educators follow our health and safety policies and procedures and have access to these online.
We understand that leaving your child in someone else’s care is a difficult thing to do. We assure you that safety is our top priority and our educators follow safety practices every day.
At all times, we ensure that our centre is secure and free of hazards, both inside and out. Fire drills and UV checks are a regular part of our informed approach to safety. We emphasise safety education by creating an atmosphere of safety awareness in all aspects of the day. You will see visual safety guides around our centre, such as our sun smart posters. These tools support our lessons about safety, which we discuss as part of the curriculum. We take every opportunity to act as role models, pointing out tripping or slipping hazards and putting hats and sunscreen on for outdoor play. We talk about stranger danger so that children can build awareness and can freely talk to us if they are scared or worried. We aim to teach children to think about their own safety habitually too.
