Bambini Coombabah offers a very tasty weekly menu freshly prepared on the premises. It rotates every month, and summer and winter menus are based around the children’s choices and input from families. Our onsite chef offers lunch favourites like spaghetti bolognaise and Moroccan chicken with rice. The children also love morning tea options such as fruit salad, yoghurt and milk, and afternoon tea choices of fruit platters, cheese and cabana.
All of the delicious meals that we provide follow Nutrition Australia guidelines. We are happy to cater to special dietary requirements such as allergies or cultural needs, so please just inform us when you enrol.
The children love our leafy surroundings and the refreshing water play area with fountains and toy jet skis. There are natural outdoor play-scapes for each room. To help ensure your child’s individual personality is nurtured, we keep a well-stocked parent and child library, and you are welcome to browse the resources on early learning as well as the quality children’s literature.
At our centre, your child will benefit from visits from special guests who entertain and educate them, including from multicultural backgrounds. Older children will occasionally go on an excursion to a nearby attraction such as Coombabah Lakelands to learn more about the natural environment.

Children with Additional Needs
We welcome all children with a wide variety of abilities, backgrounds or needs. If your child requires extra medical, emotional or learning support, we will tailor our care for them and work closely with you to ensure they have a smooth transition into our centre. This includes seeking support from other networks or professionals to bridge any gaps in our service delivery.
Some of the additional needs and support which can be provided at our centre include but are not limited to:
- English as a second language
- Autism spectrum
- Physical disabilities
- Minor or serious medical conditions
- Emotional issues
Our team cultivates a warm atmosphere of inclusion through continuous improvement and open communication. We are confident that your child will benefit from our dedicated approach to care and education.
Please speak to our staff about your child’s individual needs and how we can accommodate them.
Together we can create a plan to help them reach their full potential.
Child Safety & Welfare
All aspects of our operations are in line with the National Quality Standards and the Early Years Learning Framework. This includes our Health and Safety policy. All educators follow our health and safety policies and procedures and have access to these online.
We understand that leaving your child in someone else’s care is a difficult thing to do. We assure you that safety is our top priority and our educators follow safety practices every day.
At all times, we ensure that our centre is secure and free of hazards, both inside and out. Fire drills and UV checks are a regular part of our informed approach to safety. We emphasise safety education by creating an atmosphere of safety awareness in all aspects of the day. You will see visual safety guides around our centre, such as our sun smart posters. These tools support our lessons about safety, which we discuss as part of the curriculum. We take every opportunity to act as role models, pointing out tripping or slipping hazards and putting hats and sunscreen on for outdoor play. We talk about stranger danger so that children can build awareness and can freely talk to us if they are scared or worried. We aim to teach children to think about their own safety habitually too.
