At Tommaso Fiaschi we understand the role quality childcare plays in establishing a solid base from which children can develop and grow. We believe children are individuals and should be treated accordingly. We encourage children to develop a strong sense of self, to recognise their own worth, and to create their own identity. This ensures the rights and needs of all our children are respected.

Our programs are designed to encourage play and stimulate learning. Routines allow children a sense of stability and security. We encourage and support children to participate in all activities, irrespective of their ability, enabling them the best opportunity to develop to their full potential.

We recognise the importance of good nutritional habits and have attained the Start Right eat Right Award which acknowledges best practice in nutrition and food service in long day care centres in Victoria. Our children enjoy a two course lunch plus snacks which include lots of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as meat and dairy. We encourage a pleasant, relaxed environment for eating and younger children are offered foods suitable to this age group. All food is freshly prepared daily at the centre.

Accreditation

Tommaso Fiaschi is a fully accredited Child Care Centre.

Accreditation is about ensuring that children in childcare receive quality care, which fosters all aspects of their development. As accreditation is ongoing the centre submitted its self study in March 2008 and is awaiting the validation of our self study. The validation report along with the staff and parent surveys are reviewed by moderators and they review all the documents and compile a Composite Quality Profile and Continuing Improvement Guide. This goes to the NCAC and they make the Accreditation Decision.
