Woothoo-woothoong thoon Ninggoowoong Dawang Children’s Service

Our service has connections with many community groups. The Mirima Dawang Woorlab-Gerring language centre group visits daily, enhancing Indigenous culture within our centre.

The Blue Earth Foundation visits our kindy room once a week to focus on fine and gross motor skills. The kindy children participate in mindfulness and yoga sessions every Monday and these sessions are held in our fairy garden.

We have developed an area within our centre that focuses on a bush kindy program. Our children learn vital skills in the outdoors as they work together building and creating within their natural environment.

Vital skills gained include:

  • communication skills;
  • cooperation;
  • problem solving;
  • listening skills;
  • risk taking skills;
  • emotional resilience; and
  • wellbeing.

We are based in Kununurra, the largest town in Western Australia, north of Broome. The town is situated amongst the scenic hills and ranges of the far north-east Kimberley region and is irrigated by the Ord River dam.

Our approach

We follow a Reggio Emilia approach within our daily practice and follow a child-lead approach to our curriculum.

We embed sustainable practice through a variety of ways;

  • a vegetable garden;
  • a compost bin;
  • reduced power and paper usage;
  • half flush toilet systems; and
  • through recycling.

Cultural influences are embedded in our practice. Staff within our service come from several different cultures and children are given the opportunity explore these cultural differences through language, music and art.

Our services

We are a 40-place service.

  • Our babies room caters for infants from 0 to 24 months.
  • Our toddlers room caters for children from 2 years to 3 years.
  • Our kindy room caters for children from 3 years to 5 years.

One Tree would like to thank the National Indigenous Australians Agency for their continued support of our services.
