See where great beginnings start at Great Beginnings Taylors Lakes. Our early learning and long day care centre provides child care in Keilor that is perfect for families living or commuting through Taylors Lakes, Keilor Lodge, Keilor Downs, Fraser Rise, Caroline Springs and St Albans. We’re conveniently located off the Calder Freeway and just down the road from Taylors Lakes Shopping Centre.
We provide children with resources that foster their developmental needs and build on their interests. We embed into our programs a mix of intentional teaching and play based learning which is proven to enhance children’s learning. Our very passionate educators also embed programs such as sustainability programs, cooking experiences with our qualified chef and other experiences throughout the year.
As soon as you step into our Keilor child care centre, you’ll be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to learn and explore. Our adventure-filled playgrounds feature two levels of play environments which include sandpits, cubby house, vegetable gardens, water play area and plenty of learning resources to engage all the senses.
Children are provided time and space for uninterrupted play as they explore the outdoors to test their limits and develop strength, balance, and self-confidence. Being outside supports children’s overall health and wellbeing.
Our indoor spaces invite exploration with quality resources and learning experiences. Children wonder, create, and test out their ideas as they play with a range of materials in purposeful play spaces. Our experienced educators plan play-based learning experiences around children’s interests and learning goals. Our dedicated studio space invites innovative ways of working with unique materials.
Project work enables children to visit and work in the studio space over time with peers, educators, and specialists. Project-based learning promotes the integration of learning areas and skill sets as children problem-solve, think critically, and collaborate with others to design, create and evaluate their ideas.
There’s no need to worry about preparing lunch or snacks. Healthy, nutritious meals and snacks are created daily by our in-house cook, catering for all dietary requirements. Shared mealtimes between children and educators strengthen relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices.
There are never two days that are the same at our Keilor child care centre. Your child will have access to a schedule of engaging specialised programs including sport, Bush Kinder, music, and movement programs. These fun and engaging programs enhance the daily program.
We regularly present educational children’s shows and welcome special community guests to our child care centre to extend on the children’s learning. Some of the excursions and in centre experiences we provide is safe swimming, dog safety, bush kinder, visits to our aged care neighbours and many more.
Neighbourhood connections support a sense of community and belonging for children and provide opportunities to develop social and observational skills with different people, places, and environments.
As members of our Great Beginnings community, we look forward to partnering with you to provide information, support, and high-quality education and care in your child’s formative years.
