Gumnut Room

Within this room we can cater for up to 15 babies between the ages of 6 weeks and 18 months.


The staff ratio in this room is 1 educator to 4 children.


Our dedicated and nurturing educators follow the individual routines of your child to ensure their transition into care is as smooth as possible.


Throughout their day the babies have the opportunity to participate in a variety of experiences including, outdoor play, craft experiences, story time, singing and dancing.


In our Gumnut Room we ensure that the same educators work within the room each week to ensure your child feels safe and secure in our care.
