Our Philosophy

At FUN-A-RAMA Lakelands we provide an inclusive warm and welcoming home-away-from-home. Our service is a safe place that welcomes all children to come and play, form new friendships, unwind and enjoy themselves in the transition between school and home. With the help of our skilled and dedicated FUN-A-RAMA team, we pride ourselves on “inspiring growth” that flows between our children, families and the wider community.

Children

In relation to the children, we aim to:

  • Make each child feel safe, secure and supported.
  • Support each child in understanding the importance of their rights and help to educated them further.
  • Emphasise the importance of the natural environment and encourage sustainable practices in each child’s daily life and experiences.
  • Treat everybody respectfully and create an inclusive atmosphere, providing cultural education and awareness of diversity.

Families

In relation to the families, we aim to:

  • Recognise the diverse culture, backgrounds and beliefs of the children and families at our service and celebrate them in a respectful manner.
  • Develop positive relationships, based on mutual trust and open communication.
  • Provide flexibility to help suit the variety of families and their needs at our service.
  • Ensure there is consistency between the home and our service to best support the growth and development of their children.

Community

  • Have important relationships with our local community to help support our ongoing programming and planning.
  • Encourage community involvement within our local Peel Region throughout our program.
  • Work closely with Lakelands Primary School in “inspiring growth” to the children, families and wider community and support their mantra of “our high expectations inspire and empower every child to reach their full potential everyday” by including this our practice.

  • Provide a play-based curriculum based on each child’s individual needs and development (influence by Kathy Walker and other key learning approaches).
  • Participate in ongoing learning and reflection.

Meet Our Director

Jordyn Strong

Centre Director

My name is Jordyn and I’m the Nominated Supervisor of our Lakelands FUN-A-RAMA. I have had the privilege of being in this role since 2022 whilst my journey with the company began 2021 when I was fortunate enough to obtain my Certificate IV in School Aged Care!

I believe that all children have the right to belong in a safe and welcoming environment where they can explore and grow their authenticity and discover their self-identities. Childhood is to be enjoyed and I believe it’s extremely important to nurture and guide children throughout this experience and I love being able to do that every day!

We look forward to seeing you in our wonderful Lakelands service!

Here’s what our parent’s have to say!

World of Kids Long Day Care Centre Information Parent Testimonial Review

FUN-A-RAMA provides a very important service to the community, enabling parents with young children to attend work outside of school hours. Having dealt with many different outside of school hours services, I can confidently comment that FUN-A-RAMA always go above and beyond to meet the needs of not only the children but family members alike. They make the booking/cancelling system flexible, and all information is communicated and easily available. My children love attending the service, engaging in the activities planned and the educators work with the diverse needs of my son to make his experience as positive as possible. I often recommend the service to other parents in the area.

I would like to thank FUN-A-RAMA for your ongoing support with before/after school care and holiday care for my daughter. Knowing that my daughter is in safe hands allows me to function at my best in my professional career. My daughter enjoys the range of activities that are provided to her including cooking, craft, and excursions during holiday care. She is always happy, feels well looked after and has made a lot a friends.

World of Kids Long Day Care Centre Information Parent Testimonial Review

They provide a warm, friendly and caring environment and with each year they progress further to improve the children’s lives and families lives around them. This program provides valuable assistance with school holiday programs too and activities that my child enjoys. The life skills my son has learnt at FUN-A-RAMA is beyond comparable, he has friendships with other children that will be cherished for a lifetime; and the educators always lighten up his day and know his coping mechanisms and ways to best support him.
