A step towards the future – One Tree Defence Childcare Unit opens its doors

The One Tree Defence Childcare Unit is open for business and we’ve been greeting new children and getting to know their families. We’d like to extend a warm welcome to all of those who’ve joined us and are now part of our workplace community.

Staff have been working incredibly hard to make the transition as smooth as possible. Over the coming weeks we’ll be welcoming more than one thousand children into nineteen services.

While the services have been shut over Christmas, some services have had some maintenance work, repairs and renovations undertaken. There’s new signage in grey and orange which are the One Tree Defence Childcare Unit colours.

Many staff members have moved across from Mission Australia Early Learning, so children will recognise some familiar faces.

Our new Melbourne office team has been established to support services. This includes the fees and enrolments team that can help with booking and payments. All our educators have just completed a comprehensive induction.

The One Tree Defence Childcare Unit aims to deliver a first-class service. We encourage two-way communication and welcome feedback.

Family members can access Storypark to see what their children are learning.

We know everyone leads busy lives, but we encourage parents to spend time with us at the service. They may want to share an interest, participate in an excursion or read stories.

We look forward to the future and getting to know staff and families and building strong relationships on this new journey.
