Essentially a philosophy that empowers children to be competent and confident in their bodies and abilities.”allows children to solve problems without interference”.

Philosophy.

RIE philosophy focuses on the holistic learning and development of children. We create a calm and peaceful place for you child to build confidence in themselves and their abilities.

Curriculum.

We are guided by the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). The framework has a strong emphasis on play-based learning which will make the perfect environment for your child's growth.

Facilities.

Our state-of-the-art studio is equipped with everything your child may need, including daily necessities like nappies, wipes, bedding and all meals, included in the fees.

All Harmony Centres comply with the National Quality Standards (NQS) and National Quality Framework (NQF).

What our parents think.

I appreciate the attention to detail with my eldest child’s severe food allergies. Their on-site chef follows his strict diet routine is greatly appreciated. He started there the week they opened and I knew I had been holding out for child care ’till the right centre opened. After 12 months I can safely say I made the right choice. And with my daughter I love all the cuddles and affection she receives. We love harmony!!! See more

It’s much easier returning to work when I know my baby is happy and well cared for. She always comes home happy, rested and with a full tummy. We love the updates via Story park. We appreciate the staff being so friendly, obliging and taking a genuine interest in each child. Not having to worry about packing nappies and food is wonderful. See more

The team spirit between all staff really makes Harmony feel like Summer’s second family. We love the creativity involved in the daily learning activities – they think they’re just playing when actually they’re learning!! See more

Frequently asked questions.

Q. What are your opening hours?

A. We are open between 6.30am – 6.30pm. 52 weeks of the year, closed on public holidays

Q. Are you Child Care Benefit/Child Care Rebate approved?

A. Yes we are! To aid in the payment of childcare fees, the Department of Human Services has provided access to Child Care Benefit (CCB) and the Child Care Rebate for eligible families. Parents, please note it is your responsibility to apply for these schemes with the Family Assistance Office on 136 150. Once CCB/CCR is approved, you will need to provide the Centre with your Customer Reference Number (CRN) and date of birth (DOB) along with your child’s CRN and DOB so a formal enrolment can be made. Your benefit/rebate will then be subtracted from the full fees owing, leaving a gap fee which is the amount families pay to the Centre, meaning less out of pocket expense.
