About Galbiri

Galbiri Childcare and Preschool Centre Inc. is a non-profit community run Childcare Centre which provides long day care and Kindergarten Program services to 85 children per day in Belgian Gardens, Townsville. The Centre was established in 1974 and in 1987 became an Incorporated Association, this meant that the Centre was now managed by a volunteer Parent Management Committee.

Today, we have a Centre Manager and a Business Manager, who, under the auspices of the Parent Management Committee, are responsible for the daily operation and management of the Centre.  Galbiri Childcare & Preschool Centre Inc. provides a safe and secure learning environment for children aged six weeks to five years and in addition to benefiting the children’s early years of development, working families are able to return to work knowing that their child/ren are in the care of qualified and caring childcare educators.

Galbiri’s community run style means that all parents and staff of the Centre are able to provide valuable input into how the Centre operates, the services provided and the facilities on offer and the service’s Policies and Procedures are a collaborative process between management, educators, families and children.

The Lead Educators in each room/age group work collaboratively with their Assistant Educators and the parents to facilitate a highly educational daily program which incorporates experiences that cater to, and strengthen, all areas of the children’s development and self help skills.
