Welcome to Community Kids Cessnock!
Community Kids Cessnock is a brand new purpose built centre located in the centre of town. Our centre welcomes families from 6:30am to 6:00pm and has large, natural outdoor play spaces that are supported by natural and inviting indoor rooms.
Children learn in many different ways and at different times, as a result we have ensured that our environments have reflected this, enabling children of all ages to interact and learn from each other in the one space. We provide children with indoor/outdoor play, this means that children have choice and can exercise a sense of agency to be able to play in an environment that suits their needs and interests. Our indoor environment is arranged to cater for children based upon developmental stages, creating a more productive learning environment.
We provide morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and breakfast for those early starters at the centre before 8:00am. For convenience of busy families, we provide nappies, wipes and bedding.
We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality education and care, with our Educators programming and planning to support and extend on your child’s interests and needs. Our Educators engage with the Early Years Learning Framework, which describes the principles, practices and outcomes that support and enhance young children’s learning from birth to five years of age. We treat each child as an individual, possessing their own set of strengths and interests.
We aim to develop each child not only for school, but to be a life long learner, acquiring dispositions for learning such as confidence, persistence, resilience, getting along and organisation. At Community Kids Cessnock we believe in empowering each child to have active participation in their learning and the day to day decisions at our centre. We also run a transition to school program in both preschool rooms.
We look forward to you beginning your journey with Community Kids Cessnock!
