Early Learning Centres - Bungawitta
Bungawitta was established in 1986 to meet the needs of the families who lived and/or worked in the local community. Our proximity to the University, Maritime College and TAFE means that our families come from all over the greater Launceston area. The building created quite a stir in 1986 because of its unique child-focussed design and its architect — Robert Morris-Nunn — was the recipient of a major architectural award at the time of the buildings opening. Until recently, Bungawitta has proudly remained a community-based child care centre supported by a Board of Management made up of parents from the centre and at times other community members. Many of these dedicated individuals will remain an important part of the service through a Parent Advisory Committee. Bungawitta is committed to providing a high quality early childhood education and care service which nurtures the potential of each individual child within our community, by offering a curriculum which encourages children to explore, challenge and investigate, question and make decisions in preparation for life long learning. Bungawitta's educational program is based on an image of the child as a capable, confident, creative and active learner with rights. The natural world is a major focus of our indoor and outdoor environments; with spaces to enchant and enrich you child's imagination, creativity and sense of wonder.
