Bubup Swap Shop
Our Swap Shop contains a range of children’s new and second hand clothing. Families are welcome to take any clothes that interest them. Families will bring in quality second hand items of clothing to add to the Swap Shop from time to time. The Swap Shop is another way we can support the community. Children grow out of their clothes very quickly, and this allows families a little relief in the continual need to buy more clothing. The Swap Shop is located in the reception area, and is welcome to used at any time. If you wish to donate clothing items, please speak to one of our friendly team members in the reception area.
Here at Bubup Womindjeka we recognise that parenting can be filled with challenges and difficult decisions, whilst also being rewarding and enjoyable. We aim to support families in the parenting role, by offering guidance, support and the advice of early childhood and healthcare professionals. Our in-house psychologist along with our parenting seminars cover a range of topics (challenges) that parents of preschoolers face each day.
Quality Improvement Plan
The National Quality Framework require services to have a Quality Improvement Plan (QIP). The aim of a QIP is to help providers self-assess their performance in delivering quality education and care, and to plan future improvements.
Here at BWFCC we are engaged with our Quality Improvement Plan and engage with our community to gain feedback to assist us in improving our service to families. Bubup Womindjeka’s QIP has recently had a major overhaul. Rather than having the traditional bound document, we have recently dedicated an entire wall to our QIP.
Spread over an entire wall in our reception area, we have broken the plan into each of the 7 National Quality Standards and key areas. Each standard is individually framed addressing particular objectives and outcomes. For a list of each quality area please see below:
- Educational program and practice.
- Children’s health and safety.
- Physical environment.
- Staffing arrangements.
- Relationships with children.
- Collaborative partnerships with families and communities.
- Leadership and service management.
Located in our foyer, we invite all parents, families, educators and staff to take one of our custom reflection cards and add any recommendations, thoughts or ideas on how we can improve our programs currently available to children and their families. These cards can also be used to communicate aspects of the program that you enjoy, appreciate or would like to share positive feedback on.
Having an interactive and readily accessible Quality Improvement Plan allows us to self-assess BWFCC’s performance in delivering a high quality education and care program to greater extent than ever before, while allowing us to plan for future improvements of our family and children’s centre.
Without the community’s involvement in this process, we cannot meet people’s individual needs, therefore, we have provided this space on our website for you to email your feedback to us directly. We will take your comments and transfer these to our QIP on your behalf. You will receive a reply back from our management team in relation to your query, outlining what we plan to do to act on your feedback. Positive feedback is also welcome. Thank you.
