Long daycare for vulnerable children, families
John Mewburn Child Care Centre
Malabar, NSW 2036The John Mewburn Child Care Centre is located in the Eastern Sydney suburb of Malabar and is managed by Gowrie on behalf of the NSW Department of Corrective Services. This spacious centre offers long day care facilities with an excellent early childhood education program for 55 children ranging from 6 weeks to school age. Staff members are aware of, and committed to, supporting the inclusion of vulnerable children and families. Curricula and activity programs are geared towards ensuring a smooth transition from the centre by creating links with the local school and other support services in the area. An independent evaluation of the program by the University of NSW in 2010 found that the social and emotional development of children attending participating centres improved; peer problems decrease and children’s pro-social behaviour such as helping and sharing increased.
