From working in bigger centres, we felt disillusionment at the connections educators could make with children. There just seemed to be no time or space. The relationship between management and educators lacked depth and connectedness too.
Out in the big world, it just felt like the honouring of the human connection was missing.
We decided if no one was providing what we were looking for, it was up to us! And so, Rainbow Bridge Family Day Care was born.
Meet Our Team
In the office...
With over four decades of experience between them, our close-knit management team at Rainbow Bridge is committed to providing high quality services and support.
Our educators are located across QLD and NSW. Coming from a range of different backgrounds, cultures and walks of life, they all share one crucial thing in common - a love for children and offering big hearted early childhood education.
Big Hearted Care
The concept of ‘big hearted care’ drives everything we do.
Being intentional and mindful to ‘big hearted care’ is demonstrated through our commitment to holistic approaches to education that are inspirational, imaginative and sustainable.
We aim for excellence in how we present ourselves as a service, within our service and in the spaces and learning environments we create for children.
We commit to holding seasonal celebrations and creating strong seasonal rhythms as a foundation that children and families can rely on.
We pioneer play as the basis of children’s learning, simplifying the programming and pedagogical documentation process ensuring that children remain our focus.
Each educator within our service is highly skilled, committed to excellence in their pedagogy and practice.
We are a service that is synonymous with high quality professional development.
Connection & Relationships
We have a respectful and supportive network, where educators and families feel safe and recognised.
Belonging is demonstrated through transparent practices and consistent collaboration/communication to mould rounded, accepting communities, committed to respect and inclusion.
When you join our team, you really are joining our family, where it is safe to be seen and heard and where every voice is valued.
We pride ourselves on being responsive leaders, with an emphasis on integrity, open-mindedness and accessibility.
We maintain personal responsibility through the establishment and completion of 90 day action plans.
With the ongoing support of coordinators, each educator maintains their responsibility for meeting the regulatory and compliance requirements to maintain their registration, and to act in accordance with the Regulations, National Law and CCS Handbook.
All feedback is clear, fair and delivered open-heartedly.
Our service recognises early childhood education leaders and mentors and engages them to impart their wisdom, knowledge and expertise.
We collaborate with our team, supporting all members to create and build their businesses. We value when an educator wants to work with us to create something that can be shared across the profession.
We seek transparency with all communication and when possible, we include the whole team in decision making processes. We have clear intentions and processes for ongoing reflection and improvement.
