Welcome to The Frogs Lodge

The Frogs Lodge is a 29 place, long daycare provider located in a rural setting in Austral. Within the purpose built, spacious and modern building, Director Nicole Bucca oversees a small team of caring, professional staff who between them all have over 75 years of experience in various early childhood settings.
The staff have all been part of the Frogs Lodge family since it opened in 2007, and all  share a passion for early childhood education. We, as educators ,dedicate our training to help children in our care to grow and develop through play. We pride ourselves on our level of supervision offering higher staff ratios then what is required under the Childrens Services Regulations.
Taking advantage of the rural surrounds, the children have the opportunity to tend to a veggie patch and herb garden. There is even a chicken coop where we take the children on nature walks and collect the eggs. The outdoor area was recently renovated and includes a tunnel mound and ‘zen’ garden including a dry creek bed. With an abundance of outdoor space, the children have many opportunities for engaging in active play.
The Frogs Lodge provides healthy morning and afternoon tea options, and children are asked to bring along only a lunch meal. The centre consists of two rooms; the Tadpoles room (for children 0-3 years) and the Frogs room (for 3-5 year olds).
We welcome centre inspections and encourage you to come and have a look for yourself!
