Long Day Care

BCS offers a range of long day care options for families in Belconnen offering both full and part time care for children from birth to school age. Each centre is fully accredited and Child Care Benefit and Rebate is available to eligible families.

The centres each offer an environment that:

  • Nurtures children irrespective of their race, gender or ability offering opportunities to reach their full potential, develop self-esteem and to build friendships. We aim to meet the holistic needs of both individual and groups of children through a non-discriminatory curriculum
  • Supports families in balancing their work and home life
  • Provides opportunities for our families and members of the community to belong to a group that creates a community centred on the families and children’s needs.
  • Aims to reflect the diversity of our community and promote equity.
  • Supports and respects educators and recognises their skills and abilities.
  • Provide a curriculum that encourages children and families to feel a sense of belonging. We aim to acknowledge children’s interdependence with others and the basis of relationships in defining identities, during this process of rapid and significant change in the early years as young children learn and grow.

All meals are provided at Ginninderra Early Childhood Centre and Bruce Children’s Centre, morning and afternoon teas are provided at Belconnen Early Childhood Centre. All Centres provide a weekly music program and nappies which are included in your fees.
