Our outdoor environment consists of 2 separate yards incorporating plenty of trees, plants, bird life and shade. We have developed a Bush Tucker Garden, an Aboriginal Artwork Garden,a Butterfly Garden and a large sandpit which has a creek. As this is a natural play space it gives each child the opportunity to explore all aspects of the environment.
Our Centre is open Monday to Friday from 6.30am to 6.30pm for 50 weeks per year. We are a long day care Centre offering full day care. Fees are charged on a sliding scale according to your family income. Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate are available.
We have 3 different age groupings in the Centre:
- Nursery – 3 months to 2 years
- Toddlers – 2 to 3 years
- Kindy – 3 to 5 years
“When Elsie started at Lurra in the nursery at 10 months, Gavin and I were a little worried how she would go. There were a few issues: Elsie was an extreme co-sleeper (I could only get her to sleep in my bed and in the sling during the day). She had no interest in solids and she refused to take a bottle.
The Nursery Staff reassured me that they had successfully managed to reform the most stubborn bottle resisters over the years and persistence was definitely the key (along with me not being around). Indeed it was..... after a few sessions at child care Elsie began taking her bottle."
“At Lurra we always know our children are well cared for and nurtured, and it makes all the difference to our family. All staff are affectionate and friendly and we take our hats off to you. It can’t be easy looking after so many children at once, yet you make it look effortless. We are so fortunate that our children have benefited from such passion and enthusiasm.”
