Robina Childcare Centre
Welcome to Whispering Gully Robina situated in the heart of the Gold Coast. Our centre is located in a family-friendly area with public transport, schools and shopping centres nearby. Whispering Gully Robina is family owned and has been operating for over 14 years offering a holistic educational approach for your children. Using the Steiner philosophy, we emphasize learning through play and a focus on healthy living. The centre is environmentally aware, using nature and outside time to guide your children in social and practical life skills like cooking and conserving the environment.
Our nature-inspired playground has a loose parts area filled with recycled objects for your children to play and explore. We are passionate about keeping your children healthy and safe by using non-hazardous chemicals for cleaning. Our onsite cook provides three nutritionally balanced meals for your children. Good health is important to us, which is why we offer various activities such as exercise, movement and yoga sessions, which promote active and healthy living.
Our centre strongly believes in focusing on each individual child while preparing them for formal schooling, using the method of learning through play. Our teachers are fully qualified and passionate about early education, and we use a QLD government approved kindergarten program for our 4-5-year-olds to assist pre-schoolers in preparing them for their first year at school.
The environment at Whispering Gully is fun, but relaxing. Transitions from one activity to another are soothingly accomplished by using songs instead of verbal directions.. We also have a daily relaxation period, which we call “Storyland”. These are prop based stories, told before naptime, which promote a period of winding down, quiet time and relaxation.
