Next door to the Joeys room is our Wombats room, and being in such close proximity to Educators Natalee and Krish will allow for a smooth and straightforward progression for your little one once they are ready to move up. Here your child will further experience the new and exciting world around them through walking, touching and exploring their surroundings. Nat and Krish are eager to listen to the goals and aspirations you have for your child and love to expand on their interests to produce meaningful learning outcomes.

As you move upstairs into the Centre, you’ll find our Koala room headed by Belinda, another long-term Galbiri Educator who has been with us for 10 years. Teaming with Tinika, both ladies understand the importance of fostering positive relationships and genuine connections with your child, and are always eager to interact and hear from you as parents on what is going on in your child’s life.
Fostering an environment that encourages self-help skills, curiosity, cooperation, learning, creativity and imagination, Belinda and Tinika are a passionate team to give your child stability and familiarity.

The Echidnas room is where your little one really starts to come out of their shell and form bonds with their friends around them. Lead by the enthusiastic and vibrant Astar, your little one will be encouraged to expand on their interests and creativity through imaginative play-based learning. Astar was a former parent at Galbiri, and was drawn back to work for our community centre once she completed her studies and has been with us for almost 10 years. A conscientious and committed Educator, Astar is intent on providing your little one with a safe place to grow and form positive social skills and relationships.
2.5 years to 4 years
Our Possums room showcases our biggest outdoor play area in the centre and there is so much to see and do! Our gardens are one of our key sustainability learning areas, where we encourage our little Possums to take part in planting, nurturing and growing flowers and produce that they can see, touch and taste. Lead by the warm and welcoming Cait, Nika and Amanda, your child will build on their sense of self through societal awareness and environmental surroundings with many nature-based invitations to play.
3.5 to 5 years
Our certified Kindergarten program offers a weekly swimming lesson excursion as part of your little one’s learning at no additional cost. Our Kindyroos are encouraged to choose their own adventure through autonomous play and take part in many independent learning experiences to help build their own sense of identity, connectedness and emotional well being. Lead by a qualified Early Childhood Teacher, our Kindergarten program follows the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG), which provides advice for planning, documenting and assessing children’s learning and development, and our team are focused on sharing that information with parents/carers and, with consent, the school you choose for your child.
Our educational program details the activities and experiences our Kindyroos will participate in throughout the week. It also incorporates planned individual learning experiences or activities for each child in the group tailored to their developmental needs and linked to the QKLG learning areas. This program incorporates our routines and other areas that we focus on, such as sustainability and culture.
