Happy Hubbub is an approved and registered Australian child care provider. Eligible parents may utilise the Federal Government’s Child Care Subsidy (CCS) scheme for our services.
Hubbub childcare is known for its warm and welcoming, family-like environment. It is a boutique long day care service, licensed for 34 children per day.
The childcare consists of two rooms: Djirri-Djirri (The Willy Wagtails) for ages 0–2; and Bunjil (The Wedge-Tailed Eagles) for ages 3–5. Both rooms lead onto to the north-facing, shared outdoor play area, with a focus on natural materials for climbing and exploring, and a chicken coop housing our resident chickens, Henny, Penny and Jenny.
Hubbub’s early learning program has a strong emphasis on indoor/outdoor exploration, encouraging children to make their own choices as to where they will play, learn and explore. The indoor spaces are set up with different ‘stations’ for small groups or individuals to explore – for example, a craft table that changes daily, reading corner, home corner, and more.
Happy Hubbub’s unique, smaller childcare setting allows our small but diverse team of educators to get to know each child quickly and well. As parents are often on site coworking, they may pop in to the childcare throughout the day, e.g. to facilitate continued breastfeeding or during the early transition period. Parents are also able to peek through windows into the childcare space, and chat with the team at any time.
The Bunjil room, opened in August 2022, is led by our full-time kindergarten teacher, and provides a mixed-age (3-year-old and 4-year-old) integrated funded kinder program Monday to Friday.
In 2024, Happy Hubbub will also run a FREE sessional mixed-age kinder program. Spaces are strictly limited for sessional kinder. Enquire today.
Parents may make use of a complimentary hotdesk in the coworking space when their child attends Happy Hubbub.
We are passionate about providing a childcare service that delivers high-quality early education and childcare. We believe in fostering good working relationships between early educators and parents/guardians to better understand the needs and abilities of each individual child.
Through ongoing observation, developmental knowledge and family input, our programs will extend and challenge children to build life skills, including confidence, socialisation and teamwork, and to encourage respect and empathy for others.
All children are treated equally regardless of gender, race, ability, religion, economic status or family structure.
Our environment will be both welcoming and stimulating, encouraging children to learn through play, with hands-on experiences that encourage exploration and sensory engagement.
