Community Kids Coomera Early Education Centre is a beautiful, recently renovated long day care and early education centre for children from birth to six years. We also provide outside school hours care for school aged children up to 12 years.
At Community Kids Coomera we recognise that children learn at different paces. We tailor our programs to allow for flexibility. We focus on the child, and the specific needs of each individual group. Whether in daily play or classroom activities, your child will have many ways to express themselves whilst learning in a play-based, stimulating environment. We believe that parents and carers are a child’s first teacher, and as such, we work closely with our families to ensure the ongoing development of all children at the centre. This close relationship has embedded a close-knit community at the centre, which is evidenced by our family feedback – just Google us to see what our families think!
We offer a QLD Government Approved Kindergarten Program which will prepare your child for school and beyond and is taught by a Bachelor Qualified Teacher. We can also provide your child with consistent Before and After School and Vacation Care as they make the next step to formal schooling as we are ideally located right next door to Upper Coomera State College.
Our fantastic indoor facilities, including a fully working children’s kitchen, are complemented by engaging outdoor areas which include; vegetable and herb gardens, and chickens, as well as play equipment and bike track.
Community Kids Coomera has an on-site chef who prepares delicious and nutritious meals cooked fresh everyday using wholesome foods. Our menu is reviewed in consultation with families, allows for food allergies and intolerances and is guided by Nutrition Australia QLD. Meals are included in the daily fee. Also included in our daily fee are nappies, toiletries and sunscreen for our families’ convenience.

Reviews and Testimonials
See what our parents have to say about our centre:
“My son and daughter currently attend Community Kids Coomera and from the very beginning they have not been happier, as well as my wife and myself. They are both happy to go to their educators in the mornings with a big smile on their faces and that same smile is there when i pick them up. The educators at the centre have been nothing but fantastic every single day, the care that they have for both my children is exactly what i was after. Even after moving out of the Upper Coomera area, we chose to keep our children in this centre and i drive 40 mins to drop them off each morning. I highly recommend this centre for anybody that is looking for a child care centre for their children you will not be disappointed!”
“My son started here… he is now on his last year before prep. My son has autism and all the staff and teachers have been amazing in helping my son get ready for prep. My son has sensory issues with food and the chefs have been very helpful in catering a food plan to suit his needs. Best kindy in Upper Coomera. Would highly recommend :)”
“I enrolled my 1 year old this year with Community Kids Coomera and have not looked back. Right from the outset the staff have been nothing but friendly, helpful, informative, caring, considerate, thoughtful and respectful. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this centre for the care and well-being of your little one. An early education centre play’s such a vital role on so many levels in caring for our wee ones before they head off to school and the structure this centre provides gives them the perfect head start when Mum and Dad cannot be there on a daily basis.”
“My children started last year… (two boys) from the very start I was impressed, and my eldest son graduated and now in prep (ready thanks to the amazing CK and Miss Penbe and Miss Kirra) my 3.6 year old attends the center four days a week! I love this centre and staff and management are beyond amazing! Always happy no complaints about the staff or education. one of the best in Upper Coomera! I would give a 10 star rating if I could 🙂 I always recommend this centre to all my friends or mummies I know :)”
