Scribbles and Giggles Child Care Centre @ South Granville, the family owned and operated service that provides long day care for children between the ages of 6 weeks to 6 years are expanding their locations and will be opening our 3rd Centre which will be located in South Granville, with operating hours of Monday to Friday 7.30am to 6.00pm.

Our journey began in 2007 when we opened our doors for the first time to families in the Rydalmere community.  In 2014 we had the opportunity to grow the Scribbles and Giggles family to the Lidcombe community and opened our 2nd centre. The team at Scribbles and Giggles aim to provide a secure and happy environment where children can develop their intellectual, social, emotional, physical skills to become competent and confident individuals.  So our parents/guardians, feel safe in the knowledge that their child is receiving the best possible care.

We encourage active involvement and meaningful experimentation in a secure setting that allows the children to be leaders of their own play. All our staff develop and maintain open communication with our families and incorporate them as a source of information and support. We encourage families to take an active role in their child’s learning and in the centre. Our parents are viewed as an asset and we encourage them to be involved in day to day operations, programs, and centre decisions.

We encourage children to be navigators and active participants in their learning journeys and advocate their rights to contribute to decisions that affect them. This advocacy leads to children displaying autonomy and enabling them to build a strong sense of self.

We aim to provide a support network to families utilising our centre and provide them with knowledge, advice and professional support should this be required.

Our Mission is we believe that all children experience learning that is engaging and builds success for life.  Contact us for more information.

Carlingford Multipurpose Learning Centre has been a part of the Carlingford community since 1992.  As a Private Childcare and Education Centre our aim is to provide a program of excellence in both quality care and early childhood education for children aged between two (2) and five (5) years.   We are open from 7am - 6pm Monday to Friday.

Sun Safety

1. Slip on sun protective clothing

Choose clothing that:

  • covers as much skin as possible eg. shirts with long sleeves and high necks/collars
  • is made from close weave materials such as cotton, polyester/cotton and linen
  • if used for swimming, is made from materials such as lycra, which stays sun protective when wet

2. Slop on SPF 30+ sunscreen

Make sure your sunscreen is broad spectrum and water-resistant. Don’t use sunscreen to increase the amount of time you spend in the sun and always use with other forms of protection too. Apply sunscreen liberally to clean, dry skin at least 20 minutes before you go outside and reapply every two hours.

3. Slap on a hat

A broad-brimmed, legionnaire or bucket style hat provides good protection for the face, nose, neck and ears, which are common sites for skin cancers. Caps and visors do not provide enough protection. Choose a hat made with closely woven fabric – if you can see through it, UV radiation will get through. Hats may not protect you from reflected UV radiation, so also wear sunglasses and sunscreen.

4. Seek shade

Staying in the shade is an effective way to reduce sun exposure. Use trees or built shade structures, or bring your own! Whatever you use for shade, make sure it casts a dark shadow and use other protection (such as clothing, hats, sunglasses and sunscreen) to avoid reflected UV radiation from nearby surfaces.

5. Slide on some sunglasses

Sunglasses and a broad-brimmed hat worn together can reduce UV radiation exposure to the eyes by up to 98 per cent. Sunglasses should be worn outside during daylight hours. Choose close-fitting wrap-around sunglasses that meet the Australian Standard AS 1067. Sunglasses are as important for children as they are for adults.

Be UV aware
Be extra cautious in the middle of the day when UV levels are most intense.

The UV Index tells you the time period in which you need to be SunSmart. It is on the weather page of most daily newspapers and on the Bureau of Meteorology website:

Check skin regularly and see a doctor if you notice any unusual skin changes. If you have a lesion that doesn’t heal, or a mole that has suddenly appeared, changed in size, thickness, shape, colour or has started to bleed, see your doctor immediately. Treatment is more likely to be successful if skin cancer is discovered early.
