Delivering nurturing play environments, world-class early education and care along with lots of little extras is at the forefront at Big Fat Smile's Reynolds Street Community Preschool.
"We are focused on offering the best possible staffing ratios, highly qualified teachers and centre staff and play environments that nurture children and facilitate their creative expression," centre director, Jo Mavrigiannakis said.
"We know you value the 'BIG' little extras like meals in long day care as well as having nappies, linen and sunscreen provided."
The centre offers Attendance Blocks that let you choose less hours of child care per day to suit your needs. All families are different, and some children may not need to attend their centre's full operating hours.

"We are very strong advocates of positive education for children, families and educators, developing skills and providing resources that support resilience and build mental toughness. We have embedded meditation, yoga and brain breaks into our daily room routines with fantastic calming results," Jo said.
"We have a successful School Readiness and Transition program which reflects each child's ability to display competencies in intellectual, socio-emotional, scholastic, fine motor and verbal readiness for school.
"We encourage children to learn a language, with extensions of learning leading to cultural competence and are actually recognised as the language learning centre in this region. We are regarded as "ELLA champions" by Education Services Australia and the Australian Government, due to our successful inclusion of this program within our curriculum."
The centre offers children a very interactive and stimulating environment. Outside kids can enjoy a chalkboard/painting wall, walking beams, a large sandpit area, a vegetable garden, and a stage area where they can role play.
