Young Adventurers Yana Street – Our first centre Young Adventurers on Yana Street opened in July 2015. Set on 2 acres of established lawns and gardens we provide childcare and a State Funded Kindergarten program for children aged between 6 weeks to 6 years. For enquiries please call direct on 0350329729 Families choosing childcare should ensure they have registered for Childcare subsidy with Services Australia (formally Centrelink) & have up to date immunisations. Our second centre Young Adventurers on Chapman opened in July 2020.
Our philosophy is to ensure all children & families feel valued, have equal opportunity to participate in our programs and become active participants in their child’s learning. Our environments are designed to ensure children and families feel safe, secure and supported.
Our Company legacy is our commitment to a quality childcare culture that makes a difference for families…providing more opportunities for all. Our child safe policies, procedures, strategies and practices are inclusive of the needs of all children including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, children with disabilities, children in Out of Home Care, LGBTI children and families and children who are vulnerable. Children and young people have the right to feel safe and be protected from abuse. Careful consideration is given to information used by our centres on social media or our website or other public forums. More information on the Child Safe Standards can be found here.
We provide Education and Care for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years including a Funded Kindergarten Program run by a Degree qualified Early Childhood Teacher for children eligible for 4 year old Kindergarten or Early Start Kindergarten from our Yana Street centre. Children who attend 4 year old Kindergarten must turn 4 years of age by the 30th April of the year they attend Kindergarten or be eligible for an Early Start Kindergarten Grant. We plan to introduce a 3 year old Funded Kindergarten program in 2023. More information will be available shortly.
