Yorke Peninsula Long Day Care, where families know they are welcome like home!

Our Vision

We see Long Day Care in Australia in it’s current form falling short of the potential benefit our facilities can offer their communities. In response, we aim chiefly through Minlation Family Centre to develop a broad service offer to families that expands to include supporting associated needs to care and education such as Allied Health, adult training and more. We look forward to engaging with the community on this exciting journey. 

Service Approach & Educational Philosophy

Inspired by the “Reggio Emilia” approach to children our team focus on what is possible for a child, not what is their limitation. To achieve this we must keep quality at the heart of everything we do and deliver an environment for our team to achieve this. This is done with staff ratios above regulated minimums, significant investment in team skills and experience above minimums and delivering reward and recognition to our team that shows they are valued for the important role they play in the lives of our children. With a focus on quality this naturally carries over into the expectations on traditional values of Customer Service which is critical when dealing with young children and they strong emotions they can raise.
