Sydney Cove is a small bay on the southern shore of Sydney Harbour, one of several harbours in Port Jackson, on the coast of Sydney, New South Wales. Sydney Cove was the Bengal country ship Begum Shaw that new owners purchased in to carry goods to Sydney Cove, and renamed for her destination. Sydney Cove was built in at Rotterdam, Netherlands. She made two voyages to New South Wales, during the first of which she transported convicts, and.
We guarantee to make your care experience an enjoyable one as we know how challenging it can be to find the best care for your child. From a very early age I always knew that I wanted to pursue a career in early childhood education, recognising that the first 5 years lay the foundations for lifelong learning.
My passion and dedication to early education has continued though my 15 years of working in the industry and are lucky enough to have spent the past 10 of those years here at Sydney Cove. During these years I have worked as a room leader, educational leader and assistant Centre Manager before taking on the role of Centre Manager. I believe that children innocently view and participate in the world around them. I love sharing this with them, watching how their curiosity and playfulness inspires them to explore their environment and participate in a variety of meaningful experiences.
My favourite part about working at Sydney Cove is being able to build respectful, responsive and trusting relationships with the children, families, team and wider community. It is truly a privilege to be trusted with the education and care of your child.
At Sydney Cove we deliver a strong educational program that is built on individual interests, maximising the learning potential of all children in our care. Above all, we strive to ensure each family has a wonderful experience as they embark on their journey with us. I look forward to introducing you to our amazing team and developing a strong working relationship with you and your family.
However, they also have a very large outdoor play space with cool climbing equipment. The senior preschoolers go through a school readiness program too. The centre directors are great and the staff are friendly and attentive. They cater for special diets too. The program for the children is fantastic — so well planned and always changing. The program for my 4 year old incorporated science, maths, literacy, music, arts and the children even take excursions to local places of interest Martin Place ANZAC memorial, MCA, Woolworths to purchase ingredients to cook etc Also options for additional paid activities such as Zumba, Fast Football and more.
I was thrilled with my daughters time here and very sad to leave the center when she started school!! Great outside space for the centre of Sydney and lovely, caring staff. The pre-school program is excellent too. My daughter was very well prepared for Big School!
Combine the wonderful room staff with the wide range of activities on offer, the regular slideshows from each room, established processes and updates from the centre management, it takes away much of the stress of day care, as I know my children are in the best of hands.
Sometimes it makes me want to stay and play! Thanks for providing such a fantastic and nurturing environment to help my children grow. While there was a slight transition phase, it is just wonderful seeing our little man so happy, making friends and how fast he is developing.
Having a previous child at Sydney Cove, I was truly amazed at how well they took to school and are excelling. The last of the party to die on the march was killed by a man named Dilba and his people near Hat Hill. Those people had a reputation around Port Jackson for being ferocious. Matthew Flinders and George Bass had feared for their safety when they encountered Dilba the previous year.
In May , the three survivors of the march, William Clark, sailor John Bennet and one lascar had made it to the cove at Wattamolla and, on 15 May , with their strength nearly at an end they were able to signal a boat out fishing, which took them on to Sydney.
On the march, Clark had noted coal in the cliffs at what is now called Coalcliff between Sydney and Wollongong. This was the second instance of coal discovered in Australia. The schooner Francis and the sloop Eliza were dispatched to Preservation Island to collect the people remaining there and salvage the ship's cargo.
While waiting for rescue, the survivors had lived on the local short-tailed shearwaters , also called Australian muttonbirds, and built rough shelter for themselves. But the ship was damaged in May by heavy westerly gales, making it impossible to save her. On the return journey Francis and Eliza became separated and Eliza was wrecked, with the loss of her crew and eight of the Sydney Cove survivors.
Francis made a further salvage voyage in December and again in January Matthew Flinders was aboard the third voyage, assigned to make geographical observations. He noted petrels and seals , and located and named the Kent Group of islands. At the same time, George Bass was on his whaleboat voyage following the coast of the mainland, and he had thought to make for Sydney Cove to replenish his provisions but leaks in the boat prevented him setting that course.
He did, however, encounter a group of escaped convicts marooned on an island. They, too, had been making for the ship with the false hope of refloating her and making good their escape. When the master of Sydney Cove reached Sydney, he reported that the strong south-westerly swell and the tides and currents suggested that the island was in a channel linking the Pacific and southern Indian Ocean.
The salvage team also collected and preserved a wombat , which they forwarded to England for scientific observation, and observed colonies of seals. Soon after, seal hunters were active in the area. The wreck was relocated in , lying partly covered by sand in about 3 to 6 metres of water. Excavations have been made to recover artifacts and some timbers. The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in Launceston has a display of items from the ship, including the world's oldest bottle of beer.
In , new Saccharomyces and Brettanomyces strains of yeast genetically similar to those used in Trappist Ale were isolated from one of the 26 beer bottles recovered from the wreck 20 years earlier. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For the convict-transport ship, see Sydney Cove ship.
