Our four children's centres provide full time or part time education and care for children aged from 6 weeks to 6 years. Each team is diverse, with members of various cultures and languages representative of the local community. All educators are qualified and experienced including two Early Childhood Teacher positions within each team. Each centre also has a qualified cook preparing nutritional meals on the premises with an accredited rotating menu.

The indoor and outdoor environments are home-like and largely natural, promoting children's wellbeing as well as environmentally sustainable practices. Educators thoughtfully create learning spaces that nurture children's curiosity and invite them to engage, investigate, experiment, explore, revisit and learn through play. Our educational programs encompass the whole child. Educators program for and guide children through learning experiences that encompass visual arts and creativity, music and movement, science and mathematics, language and literacy, technology, social justice, and health and wellbeing.

Children's learning is documented using the National Early Years Learning Framework.

We value reciprocal trusting relationships with families and endeavour to build strong connections with each child and family as well as local communities which further contributes to meaningful outcomes for all children.

Located in different suburbs and communities of our City, each centre is also unique in certain aspects and you can explore these on their separate sites.

Centres operate from 7 am to 6 pm for 49 weeks of the year.
