What we provide

Our fees are all inclusive. We supply lunch, morning and afternoon teas, milk, lactose free and soy milk, sunscreen and tissues, bed linen, face washers and 'wet ones', nursery supplies - nappies, a limited range of formula, bottles, pacifiers and nappy rash cream.

Meals

Our aim is to provide your child with home-made quality meals. Meals include hot meals, salads, cold meats, sandwiches, cheese, fresh fruit, sweet and savoury afternoon tea, milk and water.

Our meals are prepared by our cooks in our centre’s kitchen and are based on providing delicious and nutritious meals incorporating the 5 major food groups. Children need fresh, nutritional and well-balanced meals. We provide this with a balanced and nutritional diet that aims to meet the average 2-5 year old child's nutritional requirements while in care (half of the daily nutritional requirement). The centres are nut free.

We advocate that mealtimes are an enjoyable event for the children and we encourage healthy eating attitudes.

Food preparation, serving and handling is managed in accordance with Safe Food Handling Practices and relevant staff have completed the necessary training in food handling/ hygiene and food preparation.

The kitchen is registered with the Toowoomba Regional Council as a food premises, and as such, is audited annually.

What to bring

At Kate's Place, we try to make things as easy as possible for our parents. We provide a Kate’s Place hat & T-shirt upon enrolment.

Here is a list of things that you need to make sure are pack for your child:
  • A shady hat for outdoor play - Kate's Place centres are fully accredited SUNSMART centres. Our policy is NO HAT - NO OUTDOOR PLAY
  • A spare set of clothes - If your child is toilet training several sets of clothes may be needed including undergarments.
  • If your child has special dietary requirements, it may be necessary for you to provide these. (Please discuss this with the Director)

* Children without a hat are restricted to playing in the shade of the verandahs during outdoor play. Children and staff apply 30+ sunscreen 15 - 20 minutes before outdoor play. Staff are required to wear broad brimmed hats, collars and sleeves and parents are encouraged to dress their children similarly.

Parent involvement

We have an 'open door' policy for parents at our centres. Parent involvement is extremely important and we encourage parents and family members to become involved in our daily activities. By volunteering some of your spare time, you will better understand what we do and how your child spends part of their day.
