Childcare and Primary Pursuits
The Farmhouse provides programs for children on a across five rooms, 6.45am-6pm weekdays. Children are in age-appropriate rooms but mix with children of all ages when outside in our communal yard and at alfresco meal times. Unlike most services, we have a room and yard dedicated to our school-age children, allowing them the room to stretch their long limbs!
Every family is different so you choose what suits you. Select from:
- long-day care
- casual care
- before/after kinder care
- before/after school care
- school holidays program
Note: we have our own mini buses and drop off to and collect from all local Mansfield primary schools; Mansfield Primary, St Mary’s Primary, and Rudolf Steiner School.
Our culture and programming
The Farmhouse has a backbone of traditional values holding honesty, friendship, teamwork and community central to our way of life. We simultaneously provide a ‘modern’ service presenting quality kind-hearted care by passionate educationalists, and excellent facilities complemented by age-appropriate resources.
Both the Forest Schools of UK and Europe and the Reggio Emilia approach have been inspirational in how similar their intentions are to the ethos we’re striving for.
