Our large open plan living spaces are dedicated to children aged from 6 weeks to 3 years and is an ideal environment where babies and toddlers can play and learn with their peers. Children can choose to play in the comfort of our large ‘home like’ living areas or spend time creating their own masterpieces in our open art/craft area. Our babies and toddlers room adjoins our large open plan kitchen area where children are able chat to the Chef throughout the day and enjoy an array of healthy foods being prepared while they watch on. There is a small garden area directly outside the room for children to explore safely in addition to one of our large playgrounds where they can tackle the purpose built obstacle courses, dig in the sandpit areas or enjoy the serenity of a spot in the shade complete with cushions and books to share with Educators. Children have easy access to bathroom facilities and there are opportunities to eat indoors or outdoors in one of our dedicated undercover areas.
3-4 Year olds
Our 3-4 year old room provides an opportunity for children to play in a small group with the support of highly qualified and experienced Educators. Children can relax inside and enjoy the comfort of a good book in our quiet reading area, build from many of the open ended resources provided or express their own ideas by creating something using the variety of art and craft mediums provided. Whilst outdoors children can spread their wings and enjoy our natural lawns, open play spaces, dry creek beds and sandpit areas. There are several undercover areas where children can participate in activities provided to meet their interests with options for eating indoors or outdoors.

Our Kindergarten room has a Degree Qualified Kindergarten Teacher available five days a week. For many families the convenience of being able to access a Funded Kindergarten Program on any given weekday alleviates the burden of having to juggle work and other commitments making it easier to drop off or pick up your child from Kindergarten. There’s no need to arrange someone else to care for your child in the morning or afternoon before or after kinder as our centre is open from 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday. Parents can choose a Kindergarten Fee Option that best suits their needs including or excluding before and after kinder care or school holiday care. Our kindergarten class sizes are small with a maximum of twelve children in any one group. This allows more time for your child to spend with his/her teacher and getting to know each other. Research indicates that lower Teacher/child ratio’s improves the overall quality of the program provided. Our smaller ‘home like’ rooms cater for individual children by providing a safe and secure place for them to learn alongside their peers and to develop a sense of belonging to the group. Our Kindergarten playground provides a large lawn area, undercover area, sandpit and bike track. There are options for eating indoors or outdoors. We also have a larger 1 acre space at the rear of our centre where children regularly go on an excursion to tend to the vegetable gardens or climb across our footbridge to our own little island and slide.
*Children must only access one Funded Kindergarten program at any one time. All children are required to enrol in a minimum of 15 hours Kindergarten each week. Access to additional hours of Kindergarten (if available) is subject to our centre fee paying schedule.
