The following information has been provided to use for this task.
This information will form the foundation of your community sector education and care service
Wintergrove Education and Care Service
A community sector, not for profit, education and care service is opening in Wintergrove, NSW.

Wintergrove is a coastal town in NSW with a permanent population of approximately 4,706 people (according to the last census).  The area has a high population of new families with young children. Children are seen as unique contributors to this young and emerging community.  There is a shopping centre; library; club, hotel and sporting facilities; several doctors (GP’s) and a range of allied health services; a police station and fire station; a state primary school and a state high school.

The management committee responsible for establishing this service are keen on providing a service that is particularly focused on the appreciation of the natural environment, ‘green living’, sustainability and recycling. This service will be the first in the town.

Wintergrove is primarily a service town, providing for industry in the local area. This includes timber, recycling and some light farming of crops. The management committee believe the philosophy should reflect renewal and care of the environment, as well as fostering within children a respect and appreciation of our natural world.

Wintergrove has strong community focus and is passionate about the role of the community in extending and enriching children’s lives and learning. 

The management committee are equally interested in the philosophy aligning to:  Belonging, Being and Becoming: The Early Learning Years Framework for Australia. 

The population of Wintergrove is growing steadily as more families move into the area. It is anticipated the service would need to run for fairly long hours and for most weeks of the year to suit the needs of families who are often committed to shift work. 

There are many babies being born and families requiring care and support who have moved to Wintergrove from elsewhere in the country, or from outside Australia. The management committee are concerned that some families may be quite isolated in terms of community support and family networks, and believe that Wintergrove Education and Care Service (WECS) can help fill a gap here and facilitate a sense of community. The community management model is important to Wintergrove Education and Care Service (WECS) and acts as the impetus of their philosophy and future direction.

The management committee is representative of a diverse community, which includes Anglo-Australians, Croatian, Italian, Chinese and a number of other cultural groups. The Australian Aboriginal population is also a strong part of the local community.
