Our Kids in the Garden and Sustainability Program provides children with opportunity to engage in experiences to learn about the natural world. We use the integrated school health resources to support the program.

Reconciliation Action Plan

Jingeri! “We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the Land on which our service stands and pay respect to Elders past, present, and future on who's Land we play and learn. Here are the mountains, Here is the sea, Here are my friends, come play with me.” At My Cubby House we endeavour to work together to contribute to a truly reconciled Australia.

Circle of Security

The Circle of Security is a visual map of attachment. The “father” of attachment theory, John Bowlby, said this about attachment: "Intimate attachments to other human beings are the hub around which a person's life revolves, not only as an infant or a toddler or a schoolchild but throughout adolescence and years of maturity as well, and on into old age.
