Scribbles and Giggles journey began in 2007 when we opened our doors for the first time to families in the Rydalmere community. With four locations and rapidly growing we are a family-owned and-operated long day care for children between the ages of 6 weeks to 6 years.
We go above and beyond to provide a high quality, secure and fun environment for children of our community where they can develop intellectual, social, emotional, and physical skills in their own unique way. Our centres allow children to learn and grow through play-based learning and encourage their active involvement so they can be the leaders of their own play.
Our program supports the 3 interwoven concepts of “Belonging, Being and Becoming” and is guided to achieve the 5 learning outcomes of Early Years Learning Framework; Identity, Community, Wellbeing, Learning and Communication.
We are known for our passion and commitment to quality care and our educators endeavor to enhance all aspects of a child’s development through stimulating, nurturing, and interactive experiences during the most important stage, “the early years”.
We believe in being highly involved with our community and we thrive to make our families feel welcomed, recognised, and acknowledged. Our educators along with our management team encourage parents to take an active role in their children’s learning experience and we strive to be the link between home and care to provide a nurturing and positive environment for children while meeting the needs of their families.
As a proud father of 6 beautiful children and an entrepreneur I understand the importance of creating balance between work and spending quality time with my family and that’s why in 2007 I decided to establish Scribbles and Giggles Childcare Centres to offer working parents a childcare solution; A place that both children and their families feel welcomed and supported.
I believe providing children with quality care and education during their most vital years is crucial to their development and sets a foundation for lifetime achievements. My goal is to provide a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment that promotes children’s creativity; A place where every child is encouraged to reach their potential.
At Scribbles and Giggles we have a team of qualified educators and caregivers who believe every moment is a teachable one, and we a have a holistic approach in our program supporting children’s emotional, social, physical, and cognitive development while providing a play-based and fun environment!
My Passion for providing children with the best educational program has led me to take unique initiatives in the childcare industry. Our Educational Manager creates and overlooks quality programs offered in each centre, while our Inclusion Support Officer ensures every child has an equal chance to participate and learn.
My vision is to be the number one childcare provider in New South Wales through offering unique educational tools and providing first in class experience to the members of our community.
I look forward to meeting your family!
Hi my name is Alicia and I am the Inclusion Support Officer at Scribbles and Giggles Childcare Centres. I work collaboratively with families, educators and the child’s allied health professionals to form an inclusive environment for all children. I ensure that every child can participate in all our programs in a meaningful way, and it is my mission to work through barriers we may face.
I believe the diversity of children, families and staff should be welcomed, respected and understood as respecting diversity is important in creating a sense of belonging. I look forward to working with all children and their families to work on each child’s individual goals and needs.
Hi my name is Carolyne and I have been working in the Early Learning Childhood industry since 2013. I strongly believe and respect that families come in many forms and that the role of any parent is a complex one. As a parent I believe that we know our children better than anybody, therefore we are the best source of information and knowledge. I believe it is important to build partnerships with families to learn from each other and to meet the needs of not only the children but the whole family.
Being a proud mother of two young children I’m very passionate about the childcare industry, which encourages me to deliver a high-quality care to all our children and their families. I bring a wealth of knowledge and leadership skills to our educators and I’m a true believer that communication is the key to achieve excellence in the care of our children and their growth into the future.
Hi my name is Unity and I am the Educational Manager for the Scribbles and Giggles childcare centres. I hold a bachelor’s degree in early childhood teaching, and I have been working for scribbles and Giggles since 2016. My job is to ensure that the educational program that is implemented at Scribbles and Giggles is appropriate and in accordance with the National Quality Framework and Standards. Not only do I oversee the educational program of our centres, I also collaborate with all our educational leaders to ensure that they are mentoring, guiding and supporting our educators to develop daily programs that focus on every child’s interest and meet their needs while supporting the families and their local community.
I strongly believe that the program should be a balance between developmental and cognitive growth as well as children’s interests, imagination and creativity. Children are active in their own learning therefore the program should reflect teacher guided learning and be flexible to include children’s own ideas about what they want to learn and how. A successful program should focus on teaching children while helping them to extend on their own ideas.
