Children's Services

Our approach to delivering high quality care is an integration which pulls rich elements from the Reggio Emelia Inspired Learning Approach, Steiner, and other theoretical learning styles that give our children the best opportunities for lifelong learning.  We stay abreast of current industry research and trends, and constantly adapt our approaches and find innovative ways to provide the best service possible for our children, families and the communities we work with. 

Our children’s services are spread throughout Australia, located in urban Victoria and Western Australia but more often in complex and challenging rural and remote areas from outback Western Australia to the Northern Territory. Our service managers and their teams receive a high degree of support from regional managers visiting monthly and providing ongoing contact via telephone and email.

Our child care philosophy centers on the understanding that children are unique and valued citizens with rights and responsibilities. It is our role to facilitate their experiences by encouraging them to initiate their own learning.

For us, care and education are interwoven - strengthened by families and educators who share responsibility and collaborate to create a strong, healthy and safe community. We encourage and welcome parent and carer feedback and participation in all children’s services. This input can be formal via bi-annual meetings, or ongoing via lending expertise and involvement in special projects.

One Tree is always keen to talk to anyone who may be interested in running their own Family Day Care business from home.

One Tree Community Services acknowledges the traditional owners of the country where we operate. In the spirit of reconciliation, we recognise their continuing cultural connections to their land, waters and communities. We pay our respect to their Elders both past and present and to all First Australians of today.
