Preparing Your Website’s Content

We understand that preparing the content for your website can be a little bit daunting, and can seem like a very time consuming task. In order to help make this process as simple as possible, we have put together this page with some tips of the trade for the best way to put your content together, and the best way to provide it to us!

Where should I start?

 

The first hurdle with writing your content is getting started, and often our clients are just not sure where the best place to start actually is. A way to make writing the content for your website as easy as possible is to plan well! So here are some initial steps:

 

Think about the purpose of your website and what you want to get out of it

Think about (and jot down) what information is required on the site to get this message across

▪ Write down a sitemap….

What is a sitemap?

 

A sitemap is simple. Essentially a sitemap is a list of the pages that you are going to have on your site, in a structured order that is reflected by the menu.

 

For example, take a look at our menu at the top of this site. You will see that some pages have dropdown “subpages”. Below is our sitemap based on what you can see in our main menu:

  • Home
  • About Us
  • Our Services
  • Our Products
  • Contact Us

Next: Preparing the text for each page

 

With a basic sitemap in place, you are now ready to start writing the content for the website. Sometimes this is made easier by making some bullet points next to each page name outlining the information that you would like to cover on each specific page.

 

The easiest way to prepare this content for us is to open up a new Microsoft Word document, and have the text for each page of your website on a separate page in your word document. If you can put a clear header at the top of these pages to show us what each page is that is also helpful.

 

Another handy tip is to have your sitemap listed at the very top of the document. That will make our lives even easier!

 

Not feeling to writing it yourself? Hire a copywriter to help you get the job done!

Still not sure how to prepare it?

 

No worry, we have prepare a sample for you to refer to in the next page. You can have a look at the sample below or download the sample, and start preparing your website content like a pro.

Tiny Town Child Care and Kindergarten has enriched the lives of children in our community since 1974. As an activity of Emmanuel Uniting Church, Enoggera, we specialise in a play-based learning programme which follows the QSA Kindergarten Guidelines.

Through our daily practices and interactions we promote the Christian ideals of love, forgiveness, respecting and serving others, equality, inclusiveness, and care for the environment.

Tiny Town believes in the principles of the Early Years Learning Framework, describing childhood as a time of belonging, being and becoming. We care for children from 2 ½ to 5 years, with a specialist pre-prep programme (link to Pre-Pre page) for the year before school.

Tiny Town operates from 8.15 am – 4.15pm Monday to Friday. We have one group per day with a maximum of 24 children. Our indoor and outdoor play spaces are designed to provide children with the best educational play environment.

At Tiny Town Child Care and Kindergarten we run an approved Kindergarten Programme, which follows the QSA Kindergarten Guidelines.

Tiny Town embraces the national guidelines laid out in the Early Years Learning Framework, to ensure “all children experience learning that is engaging and builds success for life”. The concepts of belonging, being and becoming are fundamental to the framework and these concepts are integral to our programme.

 

We ensure:

  • Children are encouraged to develop meaningful relationships with others (Belonging)
  • Children are accepted for who they are (Being)
  • Children are provided with experiences to develop the mind, body and spirit (Becoming)

 

Our programme is play-based to enable children to organise and make sense of their world, as they actively engage with people, activities and experiences that are meaningful to them.

 

We support mutual respect and an open exchange of information between parents, staff and management. By sharing information we can work together to provide an environment that strengthens and supports children’s growth and learning. Families are encouraged to participate in the programme and contribute their ideas and insights.

 

Message from Our Director

“Thank you for your interest in Tiny Town. We believe that it is a very special place for children and families. As a community-based not-for-profit centre, we are truly able to put children first. This means that we can provide a high quality educational and care service with experienced and qualified staff.

 

We can take the time to get to know all children on an individual level. We passionately believe in developing children to their full potential by providing a welcoming, accepting and stimulating environment.

 

Whether your child is taking their first tentative steps to independence or developing skills to equip them for school in our pre–prep group, we can provide a programme to suit them.

 

I invite you to visit us and see what Tiny Town Child Care and Kindergarten has to offer. We will be pleased to talk to with you about what makes Tiny Town the right choice for your child.”

Introducing:

 

Dee Lester – Director

 

I have been the Director at Tiny Town since 2005. I have worked as an early childhood educator for 17 years and hold a Graduate Diploma in Early Childhood Education. Tiny Town is a very special place, where the caring and supportive ethos enables families and the staff to work together to provide a very positive learning environment.

I am married and have 3 grown up children. In my spare time I enjoy boating with my family and relaxing with a good book.

 

Amelia

 

I have been the Assistant Director at Tiny Town since 2008. I have enjoyed a career working with young children for over 20 years and have a Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood. I am married with 2 children, aged 10 and 13. Our family loves to go camping and four wheel driving together.

I look forward to getting to know the children and their families, and being able to share in children’s learning journey at TinyTown.

I have had the pleasure of being part of the Tiny Town team since 2006. I am presently completing my Certificate 3 in Child Studies. My husband and I have 3 teenage children who keep us very busy.

I love getting to know all the families at Tiny Town and their special children. I have been a Group Leader at Tiny Town since 2009 and have worked in childcare for over 15 years. I gained my Diploma in the UK, before we moved to Australia. With my husband and our children, aged 5 and 2, I love spending time at the beach, surfing, fishing and going to all the beautiful parks here.

I really enjoy the great community spirit that exists at Tiny Town.

Charmaine

 

Hi, my name is Charmaine. My husband and I have 2 children, aged 5 and 10, and both were blessed with attending Tiny Town, experiencing the friendly and nurturing atmosphere which helped their smooth transition into primary school.

I had the pleasure of joining the Tiny Town team at the start of 2010, working in the office and taking care of all the administrative matters.

In line with the National Quality Framework, which contains the new standards against which all childcare providers are assessed, Tiny Town’s daily staffing roster incorporates the following positions:

  • Nominated Supervisor
  • Certified Supervisor
  • Educational Leader

The Ladies’ Fellowship Group at Mitchelton Uniting Church established Tiny Town in 1974 to cater for the needs of young children and their parents in the local community.

As Uniting Churches in the area merged, Tiny Town consistently provided a valuable service to the families in this community.

Today Tiny Town continues as a valuable outreach of Emmanuel Uniting Church, offering quality, affordable childcare for the local community.
