What sets us apart is our nutritionally balanced and cooked meals prepared by qualified chefs from the Surf Club Restaurant and Bar delivered daily to the service. The Service provides morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. Information regarding your child’s food intake each day is provided to parents via our Xplor app.

Celebration Cakes

Many children like to bring a cake to share with their friends on their birthday. Children love to blow out their candles while their friends are singing ‘Happy birthday’.

Our service would like to ensure that this can be achieved while ensuring the health and safety for all involved, therefore no cakes provided or prepared by families will be accepted.

In order to ensure that the correct Food Preparation and Food Hygiene Procedures have been followed, a cake can be ordered through our service which will be prepared by the Surf Club, if families would still like to celebrate special occasions at the service with a cake.

Wholesome Child

Wholesome Child is here to help your child by providing healthy and nutritious meals from wholefood recipes, supported by a research-backed nutrition and behaviour program. We are delighted to work with the Wholesome Child program to provide the best in nutritionally balanced meals and snacks for the children here at 3 Bears Cottage while helping to shape their tiny taste buds and develop healthy eating habits for life.

The Munch & Move Project

The Munch & Move Project is a fun, play-based program that supports the healthy development of young children from birth to 5 years of age attending early childhood education and care services across NSW. The program offers 3 Bears educators the opportunity to encourage children’s healthy eating and physical activity using a range of learning experiences.

Sunsmart Service

The SunSmart Early Childhood Program is a free & successful national program run by Cancer Councils in each state. 3 Bears Cottage has been successfully accredited with this program for years. This program supports our service to develop & implement a sun protection policy that reduces children’s exposure to UV radiation and reduces the risk of skin cancer.

Being a SunSmart service helps our service to meet licensing requirement (Department of Community Services) and the national childcare accreditation council.
