We’re passionate about providing inspiring learning environments that help children play, learn and grow. 

From the moment you step into our Kangaroo Flat day care centre, you’ll be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to explore. Our outdoor playground features a variety of age-appropriate equipment and resources to engage all the senses. Children are provided time and space for uninterrupted play as they test their limits and develop strength, balance, and self-confidence. 

Our experienced team plan play-based learning activities in line with the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) that engage in your child’s interests and allow them to experience each day in a new way, supporting their learning with a daily Kindergarten and School-readiness program in the lead-up to primary school. 

Children aged 3 – 6 years old will enjoy our weekly sports program for 3–6-year-old children at our centre and a little chef cooking class which is run by our centre cook.

All Meals provided - Healthy seasonal meals and snacks are created daily by our in-house cook, catering for all dietary requirements.

Nappies, wipes, bedding and sun cream provided; all you need to do is bring your child.

As members of our Great Beginnings community, we look forward to partnering with you and your family to provide information, support, and high-quality education and child care in your child’s formative years.

Our Family Support Team are happy to chat through your child care needs. Call them today on 1800 517 394 to join our waitlist and learn more about why these first five years are so important for your child’s development.
