GNH OCCASIONAL CHILD CARE 

Greenhills aims to provide a service to our community where your child is gently introduced to socialisation, following instructions and learning gross and fine motor skills.

 

We are a positive language, positive example and positive encouragement centre.  


The centre is staffed by qualified room leaders and assistants.  

We have a roster of permanent staff and always try to ensure the same staff provides continuity of care for your child. 

We have a rotating program that caters to different interests, learning styles and fosters independence and socialisation.
 

The service is offered for children between the ages of one to school-aged.

Greenhills is a child-safe centre and actively practises child safety standards.  

Please see below for our commitment to child safe standards. 

Child Safe Standards

We have zero tolerance for child abuse and are committed to actively contributing to a child-safe community where children are protected from abuse.

Our commitment to the safety of children is based on our duty of care and responsibilities to children and always acting in the best interests of children.

Our commitment will be enacted through the implementation and monitoring of the Child Safe Standards, as specified under the Child Wellbeing and Safety Amendment (Child Safe Standards) Act 2015.
