INTERGENERATIONAL LEARNING CENTRE

ABOUT US

The Herd is a family-owned and operated service, dreamed about and developed by sisters, Fiona and Anna Glumac. Fiona and Anna are passionate early childhood teachers whose philosophy is influenced by a strong desire to help children feel deeply connected to their world. 

PROGRAMS

Providing early learning and care for children from 6 weeks to school age, The Herd is one of Australia's first shared-roof intergenerational care centres in Australia. Children and aged care residents come together to enjoy activities such as art, music, lunch, storytelling, or just visiting. 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our philosophy is embedded in seven core values: connection; adventure; curiosity; health, safety & wellbeing; giving back; inclusion; and family. 

OUR ENVIRONMENT

Our beautiful, modern centre has been purposely built to provide a home-like, yet engaging aesthetic. 

Our inviting and engaging outdoor nature play spaces help foster a sense of wonder and awe for the natural environment.

NUTRITION

At The Herd, we provide morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.  Our child care menu changes every week and offers a range of meals and snacks that are nutritionally balanced, wholesome and fresh. Our menu is designed and prepared by our on-site chef.

We celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders of all communities who also work and live on this land.
