NEW SOUTH WALES
Welcome to TG's Child Care
a fun, loving and nurturing place for children to play, grow and learn..
At TG’s Child Care, our mission statement is “Playing is Learning for Life”. Our purpose is to create, develop and encourage independent young minds that embrace collective thinking with their peers.
TG’s is trusted by families for our high quality care and education that foster life-long learning, where children continue Playing it Forward long after they have left TG’s. We do this by fostering values, attitudes, skills and behaviours that support sustainable development. We build and nurture caring, respectful relationships and engagements with our local communities and make a positive and significant difference in our impact on our environment at every single TG's location.
Nature based early childhood environment
TG’s Child Care was born more than 22 years ago, when Trevor, a qualified landscape designer and Gayle, an experienced early childhood teacher had a vision to create a nature based early childhood environment.
Gayle and Trevor Kee
Owners of TG's Child Care
TG’s Child Care centres are nurturing, natural, safe and secure spaces where children play, live and learn in a well-designed, beautiful and engaging learning environment.
TG’s natural outdoor environments have been carefully designed by Trevor and Gayle as exciting and dynamic places for children. Here they can explore and develop in a way that challenges and supports both fine and gross motor skills, builds curiosity, social and emotional intelligence, encourages active and passive play and caters to varying moods and needs.
This is where Playing is Learning for Life - children naturally become curious and creative exploring in a natural environment that is safe and supported.
Gayle has created a culture of fun that also invites critical thinking, reflection and inquiry. TG’s unique and inspirational curriculums support children to be involved in an inclusive play and enquiry-based learning environment that promotes competence, independence and exploration.
Exploring nature is part of our sustainability practices. It builds a foundation of values for making the world a better place. We develop independent and creative young minds, encouraging collective thinking with their peers and making a significant difference. With our play and enquiry-based curriculum, children build relationships with each other, identify their own strengths and share their gifts with their friends and others around them and are supported to reach their fullest potential. Our environment is rich in love, care and respect.
Qualified, Professional Educators
Our qualified, highly-experienced and dedicated teams of educators work together to maximise the well-being and development of each child. We design quality outcomes for children to encourage, support and equip them with the skills they need to succeed in life. We nurture each child’s interests and stages of development so that they may establish a life-long compassion, love and respect for themselves, their environment and their community.
Our educators carefully review, examine and produce educational program outcomes that are new, innovative, inclusive of all needs and flexible for all children and families.
For over 22 years, TG's Child Care has been the Stewardship of Children's Future
TG's business model is one of sustainability - we look at how we impact the environment, social aspects and economy of our locations. TG's fosters values, attitudes, skills and behaviours supporting children to become environmentally responsible. TG's children build eco-intelligence by learning how to care for their environment and ensure its sustainability and long term future. Children also learn to appreciate our communities as a valuable source of sustainable business and economic support.
Today, TG’s is recognised by locals for their high quality of care, education and community engagements. At TG's, children learn respect for each other and cultivate a love of learning that will take them through to primary, high school and beyond as valuable and reliable citizens of our community. We embrace and respect diversity and equality, expanding the children's vision of our culture and society.
Children are seen as capable and competent problem-solvers, conflict resolvers, inventors, artists, designers, construction workers, welfare workers and future architects, politicians and leaders of the world. Every single child at TG's is encouraged and supported to become well-rounded young citizens who form meaningful connections with their world through belonging, being and becoming.
