The City of Logan is now the only community in Australia to have three early childcare services with the Excellent rating, the other two being Canterbury School Kindergarten Program in Waterford West and John Paul College Outside School Hours Care in Daisy Hill.

City of Logan Mayor Luke Smith congratulated Rosie’s Early Learning Centre owner and pedagogical leader, Carrie Rose, for the work the centre is doing to help influence and strengthen the youngest and often must vulnerable members of our community.

“This is an incredible achievement and one of which the Rosie’s team can be rightly proud,” Mayor Smith said.

“As the third centre in our community to receive the recognition, Rosie’s now firmly positions the City of Logan as being home to some of the best childcare services in the nation.”

ACECQA Chief Executive Officer, Karen Curtis, congratulated the service on its achievement, and commended the educators on their commitment to raise the bar on quality education and care.

“It is clear that Rosie’s Early Learning Centre has a remarkable relationship with the Logan community and outstanding practices and environments that enhance children’s learning and growth.”

“As the third centre in our community to receive the recognition, Rosie’s now firmly positions the City of Logan as being home to some of the best childcare services in the nation.”

The service is a leader in a number of community initiatives, including the Logan Together project, established in response to Australian Early Development Data (AEDC) data, and partners with a women’s domestic violence shelter, supporting women and children in crisis by integrating them into the service.

As part of the Logan Together initiative, children from the centre shared their Acknowledgement of Country and Aboriginal Yugambeh National Anthem at a community forum meeting. Children also contributed their design ideas and a prototype of a playground and water treatment plant for the Logan area.

The children’s independence is further supported at “Bush Kindy”, which runs between April and October. Through exploring, discovering and connecting with the local bushland, children learn about sustainability and the importance of land and country for all Australians.

Educators at the service are supported to champion their strengths and interests, and lead children’s learning in key areas like food literacy, mental health, languages, sustainability and cultural competence. Educators are encouraged to become leaders through the service’s coaching and leadership program.

“Rosie’s Early Learning Centre believes all children have a voice and deserve to be heard, in their service and in their community,” Ms Curtis said. “Congratulations again to Rosie’s Early Learning Centre on their outstanding achievement and their contribution to the local community and wider education and care sector. This is a fantastic outcome for the educators, as well as the children and families who use the service.”
