Features of the Burnage Street Centre
Charley's Place all-new centre at 2 Burnage Street (Redwood) opened in January 2019 and is part of the East Toowoomba school catchment zone. This centre will introduce the Charley's group's first 'forest school' concept.
'Forest School' is about teaching children using the outdoor environment; the ethos is about promoting confidence, self-esteem and independence through small achievable tasks. The Redwood centre includes a number of eco-focused features that compliment the range top surroundings, including fire pits and forest walks.
All Charley’s Place Forest School sessions are linked to the curriculum, with the emphasis on child-lead learning with our qualified practitioners facilitating sessions to gain personal outcomes for each participant. Forest School can be applied to all age groups and abilities and the centre includes educationally equipped nursery, toddler, junior kindy and senior kindy rooms.
Each Charley’s Place service has a fully equipped commercial kitchen that caters for all of the different dietary and allergy requirements of our children. Our menus are seasonal and freshly prepared daily for early starter breakfasts, morning, afternoon tea and lunches. In conjunction with Feed Australia we meet the latest developments in healthy and nutritional eating. https://www.feedaustralia.org.au/
We also offer a cup of freshly ground coffee and menu taster snacks for parents at drop off.
Built on their centres service pillars of play, education and success, both the award-winning Margaret Street and Redwood all new state-of-the-art facilities have been designed to encourage outdoor learning through interactive play.
Our premium fit-outs, playscape, landscape structure and design has a direct positive impact and a value add to the community. Our convenient on site parking makes pickups and drop-offs a breeze!
