Our Story

 Our Story 

At Mini Bambini Early Intervention Centre we foster a community that embraces transitional opportunities, uniqueness and boundless possibilities.

We understand that this journey is not walked upon alone; this is a path we walk hand in hand with families. As a family-owned service, and being parents ourselves, we deeply understand the significance and importance of having options.

We wholeheartedly believe that parents deserve choices that empower them to make the best decisions for their child's future.

Our mission is to provide a safe, supportive, and stimulating haven, where every child and family is provided with the opportunity to thrive, not merely survive, in an environment where they are valued, understood, and supported.

We are not your ordinary Child Care Centre; we are pioneers of change, opening doors to a brighter future for children of all abilities.

We stand by our commitment to 'change and choice' in child care. This is what drives us forward, pushes boundaries, and revolutionises the landscape of Early Education and Care.

Our Learning Program

 OUR CURRICULUM 

 We firmly believe in a criss cross-approach that blends the best of therapy and childcare.

Our team of professionals have crafted the Mini Bambini Criss Cross program, a unique and integrated curriculum that operates five days a week in a warm and nurturing environment.

Our Criss Cross Program, inspired by the Group Early Start Denver Model (G-ESDM), offers a unique group setting for children to develop social communication skills.

Engaging activities and interactions with peers promote meaningful connections and essential social skills.

 Behavioural specialists, therapists and experienced staff create personalised plans for each child, addressing their specific needs and monitoring progress through observations, assessments, and progress reports.

 

Our dedicated team of experienced educators and professionals work collaboratively to provide specialised therapy skills and create an inclusive and nurturing environment. The program also emphasises integration and social interaction, allowing children to interact with their neurotypical peers, fostering friendships and modeling appropriate social behaviour. This holistic approach helps children with autism or associated learning needs develop vital social skills and a sense of belonging.

  • Why should my child enrol in Mini Bambini Early Intervention Centre (Criss Cross Program)?
    A child enrolled into our Criss Cross Program will receive educational support services that are tailored to his or her unique needs and specific goals in a highly supported environment by trained personnel. Parents and teachers work closely together (with use of data tracking and progress reports) to ensure that each child's educational needs are met. Integration opportunities with typically developing peers during playtime are carefully planned and coordinated between the two centres.
  • What’s the difference between enrolment in the Criss Cross Program and the Inclusion Support Program (ISP) being offered at most Child Care centres?
    There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it come to children's learning. Children with autism or associated needs often require intensive and focused instruction, which isn't available in general education (GE) classes especially in classes of 20+ children. GE teachers and assistants providing ISP within long day care settings, often lack the necessary experience and opportunities for collegial collaboration and support to effectively work with these children. Some of the main barriers for ISP are lengthy waiting times for approval, facility limitations, inexperienced teachers, inadequate government funding and limited availability. The Mini Bambini Criss Cross program offers a suitable program, trained and experienced professionals and a guaranteed low educator/child ratio within a purpose built centre, which allows for optimum support during the daily routine. We provide data tracking progress reports to provide families with the feedback they require based on their childs learning and development in the Mini Bambini Early Intervention environment. Often, the individual attention and the smaller number of classmates characteristic of a special education program creates a very effective learning environment for children with high needs.
  • Who is eligible for Early Intervention Services at Mini Bambini?
    The Mini Bambini Early Intervention Centre specifically caters for children with Autism Assosiated Needs. Children must be between 2-5 years of age when they start in our program. A formal diagnosis is not required. Our team will assess each child to confirm eligibility.
  • Does the Mini Bambini intervention approach replace my current therapy team?
    The Criss Cross program is designed to be interdisciplinary, underlying and integrating core principles and strategies used by allied health professionals during 1:1 therapy sessions. We believe that this style and frequency of integrated therapy within a child care group environment complements individual therapy but provides opportunities for learning and development beyond those that can be provided through a 1:1 approach alone. Our educators can observe, guide and interact with children during mealtimes, toileting, rest times etc all providing opportunities for intervention and generalising appropriate behaviours. In this context your child is working on their goals and skills throughout the day and is not confined to a set time and one room only. Early years group therapy programs are a safe and supported way to develop new skills or practice skills learnt in individual therapy sessions. Groups are also a great way for parents to connect with each other in an understanding environment.
  • I have multiple children requiring care. Can I enrol my child at Mini Bambini Early Intervention Centre and another child at Mini Bambini Early Learning Centre, located next door?
    Absolutely. We understand the importance of making childcare arrangements as convenient and seamless as possible for families. We believe that having care for multiple children with differing learning needs located at the same place offers a one-stop shop for families, making pick-up and drop-off times easier and more efficient.
  • What are my funding options?
    Currently, eligible families can apply their Child Care Subsidy to the daily fee. Families with access to NDIS funding are able to utilise these funds for individual therapeutic services with hello you.
  • Do you provide individual therapy on site?
    We are proud to partner with Hello You Autism Services. HYAS offers additional therapy options to families. 1:1 Therapy is provided and facilitated during hours of care or can be arranged after 4pm – this needs to be arranged with HYAS directly. HYAS therapy rooms are on site and across the car park. All additional therapy will attract a fee payable to HYAS directly. Families with approved NDIS funding will be able to apply funding to these services.
  • What are the daily Fees?
    If you require information regarding our daily fees, we highly recommend you reach out to us directly. Please contact us through our contact form. A member of our team will be able to respond with the relevant information.
