Southern Telegraph - - News -

Kwinana’s Bright Fu­tures Chil­dren’s Ser­vices has been recog­nised for its qual­ity child­care ed­u­ca­tion and sup­port, be­ing named a fi­nal­ist in this year’s Ex­cel­lence in Fam­ily Day Care Awards.

Ed­u­ca­tors and fam­i­lies nom­i­nated the ser­vice for the award, with Bright Fu­tures staff pre­par­ing a sub­mis­sion that high­lighted the ways they pro­vide ed­u­ca­tion and sup­port.

Bright Fu­tures Kwinana man­ager Andrea Harold said the staff felt priv­i­leged to be recog­nised, with 14 of her ed­u­ca­tors also nom­i­nated for Re­gional Ed­u­ca­tor of the Year.

“It gives us a fan­tas­tic feel­ing to know we are val­ued for what we do,” Ms Harold said.

City of Kwinana mayor Carol Adams said be­ing named a fi­nal­ist for Western and South Aus­tralia was a huge and well-earned hon­our for the ser­vice.

“One of the cen­tre­pieces of the work com­ing out of Bright Fu­tures is an in­dige­nous play­group called Mo­orditj Ku­lun­gar for lo­cal Kwinana and Rock­ing­ham Abo­rig­i­nal fam­i­lies and their chil­dren,” she said.

“This play­group is a unique and spe­cial ini­tia­tive that is only made pos­si­ble through the hard work of Bright Fu­tures staff.”

The ser­vice won the 2015 Fam­ily Day Care WA Ser­vice of the Year Award and is rated as an ex­ceed­ing ser­vice by the Aus­tralian Chil­dren’s Ed­u­ca­tion and Care Qual­ity Au­thor­ity
