Welcome to Gumleaf Gully Childcare

Welcome to Gumleaf Gully Childcare and Early Education Centre

At Gumleaf Gully, we welcome families from all walks of life. Our passionate and highly trained educators provide exceptional care for children from six weeks up to school age. We pride ourselves on creating a warm and nurturing environment, encouraging each child to pursue their unique interests and develop lifelong skills in preparation for school and beyond.

We are a Queensland Government approved Kindergarten and Childcare Centre

When your child attends our centre, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that all our educational programs are Queensland Government approved and have been specifically designed to enhance your child’s learning and development.

We value the natural environment as our third teacher

One of the things that sets Gumleaf Gully apart from other childcare services, is we aim to bring back the wildhood in childhood by using the natural environment as our third teacher. Our beautiful natural spaces allow children to foster their abilities and learn through play and exploration of the environment around them.

Our ranger guides the children’s learning in our natural spaces, teaching the children about sustainability and caring for all living things. The children love our vegetable garden, worm farm and lizard enclosures and being based in Burleigh Heads, we also get visits from the lorikeets from Currumbin in the afternoon. See our Gallery for images.

Why Natural Play – By Childcare Expert John Wall

  • Children who play regularly in natural settings are sick less often. Mud, sand water, leaves, sticks, pine cones and gum nuts can help to stimulate children’s immune system as well as their imagination.
  • Children who spend more time outside tend to be more agile, active and balanced.
  • Children who play in natural settings are more resistant to stress; have lower incidence of behaviour disorders, anxiety and depression; and have a higher measure of self-worth.
  • Children who play in natural settings play in more diverse, imaginative and creative ways and show improved language and collaboration skills. Single use, repetitive play equipment becomes boring quickly.
  • Natural, irregular and challenging spaces help kids to learn to recognise, assess and negotiate risks and build confidence and competence.
  • Children who play in nature have more positive feelings about each other.
  • Bullying behaviour is greatly reduced where children have access to diverse nature-based play environments.
  • Symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder are reduced after contact with nature.
