About us

At Cambrian Preschool we recognise early experiences lay the foundations for future learning. As a result, our experienced educators will focus on helping your child to reach their potential during their time at Cambrian Preschool. Our educators develop play-based learning experiences that focus on children’s individual needs and interests. We will encourage your child to make choices and guide their own learning. We also recognise the important role families play in a child’s learning journey, and we encourage a shared partnership between you, your child and educators.

Centre Philosophy

Early childhood is a unique time of life that needs to be valued, enjoyed, and respected. Our professional knowledge tells us that it is also a time when foundations for future learning, well-being, and health are laid. We aim to ensure that children are allowed to grow with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to be effective learners and caring people who enjoy rich and successful relationships with others. Children’s voices lie at the heart of consulting with children. By children’s voice, we mean children’s expression of their meaning through talk and other ways such as visual arts, dance, drawing, song and music. Through whatever means children use, children’s voices matter when consulting with them about issues affecting them. To listen to a child with all our senses is to wholly encounter the child in all their fullness of being and richness of thought. We value children with important things to say.

Meet your Nominated Supervisor

I’m Vicki Bromley, Nominated Supervisor at Cambrian Preschool, focusing on mentoring educators to enhance practices for our children and community. Our Early Childhood Education philosophy values early years as foundational for lifelong learning and wellbeing, emphasizing inclusion, partnerships, and child agency. Located in Melton’s west, our service supports vulnerable families with trauma-informed practices, offering tailored support without judgment. While housed in an older building, our dedicated educators create engaging interest-based programs, including sports, cooking, and wellbeing activities, fostering strong connections with families.

Frequently asked questions

Your child will need a backpack or bag, a refillable water bottle, a change of clothes, a wide-brim sun hat and their favourite toy, which can help them settle in.

Children love community visits. Experiencing different environments and groups of people helps them learn. You’ll get plenty of information in advance and have opportunities to ask questions. The centre will also need your written permission before your child can take part.

Germs spread quickly, and home is the best place when we’re unwell. Please keep your child home for at least 24 hours if they show any of these symptoms.

• 38C and higher temperature

• Vomiting or diarrhoea

• Rashes that can’t be explained

• Red, swollen and discharging eyes

• Unusually lethargic, irritable or not eating and drinking

When your child is feeling better with no symptoms for 24 hours, they’re welcome to return.

Infectious diseases

If your child has an infectious disease, please keep them at home and let us know straight away. Whatever you tell us is confidential.

If your child becomes unwell while at the centre, teachers will make them comfortable and ask you to pick them up. If you’re not available, they’ll call one of the other contacts listed on your enrolment form.

Whether it’s a one-off issue or requires ongoing care, talk to your teachers if your child is on regular medication or has food allergies or intolerances. The team is there to support your family, and the more you can tell them, the better they can help. They will ask you for information from your doctor about how much your child takes and how often. Also, let the team know when anything changes. They will set up a new plan to support you, including any necessary training.

ECMS is a Child Safe organisation. We rigorously follow the child-safe standards set out by the Victorian Government. These standards guide us to drive a child safe culture, provide appropriate strategies and actions to put the interests of children first, keeping them safe from harm. We are committed to involving families and communities in our efforts to keep children safe.

Engaging in risky play is vital for children’s learning and development. Our teaching teams plan for and support opportunities for children to explore their environment and challenge themselves within play. Navigating risk promotes problem solving, persistence and resilience, and in a safe environment, is lots of fun!

    ECMS acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants of the nation and the traditional custodians of the lands on which we live, learn, work and play. Aboriginal people have a long tradition of teaching and learning through sharing their connections with country, community, language and culture. We recognise their continuing connection to the country, and we pay respects to elders past and present.
