Community Kids Thornton Early Education Centre

About Us

Welcome to Community Kids Thornton Early Learning Centre

Community Kids Thornton provides a supportive and homelike environment designed to enhance your child’s early childhood development.

We are open from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm weekdays and provide care and education for children from 6 weeks to school age. Nappies and nutritious meals are provided throughout the day for our families’ convenience.

Our learning curriculums for children are play-based focused, meaning we specialise in masking learning through play. Our team is trained to seek out opportunities to support all areas of interest and development in young children, without taking away their right to play. Our education goes beyond the classroom, into nature and society to appreciate young children as the capable, inquisitive, independent and social learners that they are, even from birth. We recognise and respect the importance of the early years in preparation for both school and life.
