Welcome to Palmwoods Kids Club. We are a P&C based service located within Palmwoods State School. We operate Before School Care, After School Care and Vacation Care. We are licensed for up to 75 children for each session. We strive to provide a welcoming environment for all children that attend our service and help them excel in all aspects of their development.

Our Values

Our Philosophy

Family: We believe that our program should be inclusive of all children and their families and recognise and respect parents as primarily responsible for the upbringing, protection and development of their children.  

Sustainability: We will foster children’s capacity to value and respect the broader environment and the interdependence between people, plants, animals and the land. We will provide children with opportunities to be involved in environmentally, socially and economically sustainable practices both at Palmwoods Kids Club and in the community.

Culture: Our commitment to Reconciliation and Inclusion will support a deeper connection to the land on which we nurture the children in our care and we will embed these attitudes within our program. Each person’s culture and diverse needs will be recognised and genuinely appreciated within the program.

Community: We aim to collaborate with parents and the community to welcome open discussion with all, on issues relevant to the service’s operation. We believe that “it takes a village to raise a child”. Stakeholders including; children, families, community members and educators should be treated with respect and their views in relation to the operation of our service will be considered and valued.

Learning: We will cater for individual children’s needs and interests, in line with our curriculum and the MTOP Framework. We will promote agency and provide an environment which allows children to be confident and involved learners who can effectively communicate. Our pedagogical approach to the program is based around play, fun and the 9 Multiple Intelligences.  We provide invitations to; create, extend on interests, and develop life skills, in addition to scaffolding children’s developing interests. 

Nutrition: Our children have the opportunity increase their knowledge about food and nutrition through involvement in menu planning and food preparation. We encourage our children to take responsibility for their health and wellbeing through learning about and developing healthy eating habits. We encourage outdoor play and exercise through games.

Creativity: Palmwoods Kids Club will be a fun place to spend time, with endless opportunities for the children to develop a strong sense of identity and allowing each child to connect with and contribute in a way which suits them. We believe that providing children with activities and resources which hold significant value for individual children, allows them to engage at their own pace.

Leadership: We will protect all children from harm and respect each child’s dignity and privacy. Management will support a cohesive team of professionals who perform their role ethically and in a manner which is child and community centric.  We will recruit and retain educators who prioritise an environment which promotes learning and development, while complementing our pedagogical approach of play and fun. We will treat our educators with respect, fairness and equity and build on their strengths while providing them with mentoring, training and support.

Acknowledgement to Country

We at Palmwoods Kids Club would like to acknowledge the Gubbi Gubbi people who are the traditional custodians of this land on which we work, play, learn and grow. We would also like to pay our respect to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the hopes, dreams, traditions and cultures of Aboriginal Australia. Our vision for reconciliation is to create an environment that embraces unity between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and other Australians, and a culture that fosters equality, equity and historical acceptance of our shared history.
