It’s great to know, when you walk into Cherry Bridge Station Rhodes, that every element of the Centre’s design has been made with your child in mind. Cherry Bridge Station Rhodes is shaped to an optimised layout. It’s modern, comfy – and loads of fun!
Warm, tactile, bright and homely, light-filled indoor spaces are furnished with natural textures and elements that appeal to the imagination. We created a cosy vibe, with a range of textiles and textures, like funky rugs and throw cushions, which helps your child make the transition between child care and home.
Comfort year-round is taken care of with controlled temperature environments – not only does this make life easier but it insulates our children against weather extremes and potential health issues. There are separate spaces for resting, sleeping and toileting, which helps your child to know where they are up to, in their daily routine.
Cherry Bridge Station Rhodes has modern, considered playspaces that capture every child’s imagination. Outdoors is an exciting space, partially open to the sky, with sandpits, decking, benches, a hill with bridge and tunnel, cubby houses and water play, amid an enticing range of structures made specially for play and exploration. A big verandah, shade sails and umbrellas provide shadey places for outdoors play.
Security and safety for our families is a big part of ensuring everyday wellbeing. Each of our centres is accessible by secure key pad entry only, using a code.
The kitchen is at the heart of the building, keeping good food and good health central to our daily routine. All our meals are prepared onsite with our own cook, which makes the kitchen one of the most important areas in Cherry Bridge Station Rhodes. Our herb garden produce is incorporated into our meals, and children love to pick things from the garden.
At Cherry Bridge Station, we know it’s important for families to stay on top of the household budget. We are committed to transparent pricing and you only pay for the days your child attends. A bonus for our families – care on public holidays is always provided FREE.
You want the best for your child, so we made the call to use only use the best nappies. Huggies are Australia’s favourite nappy and we provide them exclusively at CBS Rhodes, with no extra charge.
Providing quality nappies makes your child’s daily routine easier – and it works better for us too. Including free Huggies means there’s one less thing to worry about in the morning before leaving the house. It’s just another thing we do, to help support our families.
Community, diversity, strong cultural identity and inclusion are all part of being at Cherry Bridge Station. All kinds of communities are part of the everyday experience at Rhodes, and this supports every child’s learning and growing journey.
Our educators are bilingual, are from a range of cultural backgrounds and are familiar with different kinds of family structure – because everybody’s family is different! Most importantly, we walk the talk by incorporating these values into all of our educational programs.
At Rhodes, we take Mandarin classes every week and we celebrate lots of the important dates in our calendar – including Chinese New Year, Diwali and NAIDOC Week. Got another fun festival to celebrate? Let us know!
