With 1 in 5 Australians now facing a disability or barriers to participate in our community, 3 Bears made a thoughtful and informed decision to work diligently over the last couple of years to imbed procedures and practices that would foster respect and equal opportunities for all abilities to contribute and participate in our service.

Our team at 3 Bears plays an important role in ensuring we accomplish inclusiveness and together we accomplish a lot. Our practice is to adopt a strong collaborative approach with our children, families and specialised services, by asking for advice of each other, while supporting and encouraging each other, which in return provides better effective outcomes for everyone involved.

3 Bears introduced our very own wellbeing program last year to ensure we focused on innovative yearly projects that would enhance the wellbeing of all our children, families, educators and the wider local community.

This year we are proud to announce we have successfully seen our Educators give time to more than 7 community volunteer programs, gaining skills and insight beyond teaching within the walls of our service.

Volunteering built the capacity of our service to support our educators to implement inclusive action-based strategies within our wellbeing program and build an altruistic team.

Learning environments and our family engagement groups have been ever-changing and revamped, to be more flexible and have been modelled around a theme of multipurpose to promote social, emotional and physical wellbeing.
