Warm and welcoming early childhood centres

“Our centres offer flexible part-time and full-time programs and extended care options to suit your schedule,” says Heidi Prowse.

In this sponsored post, Capital Region Community Services executive manager of strategy and impact Heidi Prowse highlights the warm and welcoming educators in its early childhood education and care services.

CAPITAL Region Community Services (CRCS), a non-profit organisation providing programs and services to communities, offers four early childhood services across Bruce and Belconnen.

“As a not-for-profit organisation, we are all about community, and our warm and welcoming educators embed that within our early childhood centres,” said executive manager Strategy and Impact Heidi Prowse.

“We provide value-for-money education and care for your child.

“We also understand the demands of modern family life. Our centres offer flexible part-time and full-time programs and extended care options to suit your schedule.”

She said CRCS early childhood education and care services were located in the Belconnen Community Centre, Westfield Belconnen, the CIT Bruce campus and the grounds of North Canberra Hospital. 

“Our centre at Westfield Belconnen, Belconnen Early Childhood Centre, can also provide casual care for already enrolled families while they are shopping, which is perfect for parents and carers who want to get those last Christmas presents in peace,” said Heidi.

“The four CRCS services offer small, intimate settings that allow for a holistic approach to education and care for your child. 

“In addition to the academic curriculum, CRCS’ trained educators nurture their social and emotional growth, creativity and physical well-being, to help children become confident, well-rounded individuals.”

The directors and their teams of qualified educators come from varied backgrounds and embed multiculturalism and respect for diversity into the curriculum, along with a strong focus on community and sustainability.

“At CRCS, we are proud that two of our four services have been assessed as exceeding the National Quality Framework Standards, a recognition held by under a third of education and care services across Australia,” Heidi said.

“We currently have availability in our services, so we encourage parents and carers to book a tour and meet our team.”

Okay, so what wine goes best with smoke?

"I’d never serve a sauvignon blanc with smoked fish. Rarely is this varietal 'sour' and often, especially if French, is not fruit forward," writes wine columnist RICHARD CALVER, who has a weakness for food flavoured by smoke.
