About Gramma’s House

This centre is dedicated to the memory of Mrs Chris Henzell, who passed away on the 21st December 1988. Her grandchildren and their friends in the district always referred to her home at Mt Pleasant, which was built in 1924, as ‘Gramma’s House’. This centre had its beginnings in 1990 in that very house. Even though our centre has changed location and owners, we will continue to keep her memory and her warm welcoming ways alive by retaining the name ‘Gramma’s House’.

Gramma’s House is licensed to meet the requirement of the Office of Early Childhood Education and Care and is registered for forty-four (44) children aged between birth and school age (including school children). Melissa Edwards operates the centre under the company name as Melanna Child Care Pty Ltd trading as “Gramma’s House”.

We pride ourselves on the quality and experience of our staff and the warm, secure, homelike environment we provide for your children. We believe the centre is an extension of the home and that staff and families from a community from which children gain a sense of belonging through shared goals and visions. This helps promote the overall development of children.

Through our home like atmosphere children can feel safe, secure and relaxed. The atmosphere is generally one of cooperation rather than of competition and children can learn from older children’s skills that may be somewhat advanced for the level of their development. Differences in size are obvious and differences in abilities are more readily accepted – a tolerant attitude to others is encouraged.

We welcome you and your family to Gramma’s House. We are sure you will enjoy your time here.
