We’re part of your village at Community Kids Pascoe Vale Early Education Centre. Our early learning and long day care centre is ideally located for families living or commuting through Pascoe Vale, Pascoe Vale South, Strathmore, Essendon and Coburg North.
From the moment you step into our Pascoe Vale child care centre, you will experience a world where children are inspired to explore, learn and grow. Our spacious outdoor environments includes climbing equipment, a water play area, sandpit and a vegetable garden to engage all the senses. Children are provided time and space for uninterrupted play as they explore the outdoor spaces to test their limits and develop strength, balance, and self-confidence. We offer a music program: Jump for Joy and a Sports Education Program: Little Sports Heroes.
Our indoor environments invite exploration with quality resources and learning experiences. Children marvel, create, and test out their ideas as they play with a range of materials in purposeful play spaces. Our team of experienced educators plan play-based learning experiences around children’s interests and learning goals. Literacy and numeracy concepts are embedded in play-based learning, as children engage as architects, storytellers, scientists, artists and designers.
You won’t need to worry about packing breakfast, lunch and snacks for your child. We provide healthy, freshly made meals created daily by our in-house cook, catering for Halal and all dietary requirements. Shared mealtimes between children and educators grow relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices.
We offer specialised programs designed to grow physical and cognitive development, such as our music and sports program.
Throughout the year, educators and children venture out on excursions to our local Pascoe Vale community visiting nearby aged care facilities and primary school. We regularly welcome special community guests to the centre based on the children’s interests including the principal from the local primary school. 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.
We offer an engaging sustainability program teaching the children a sense of responsibility and connection to their world.
Our centre is located on Bell Street near the ramp onto the Freeway, to access to our centre go down Westgate Street which is behind our centre, into Magdalen Street and follow the service road (next to entry onto Bell street) to arrive at our centre. This service road is a one-way street, so after you leave our centre you follow the service road out onto Bell Street into the Coburg direction. Please keep in mind if you are coming off the ramp from Freeway, you cannot turn left into Anderson Street between 7 am – 9 am.
As members of our Community Kids community, we look forward to partnering with you to provide information, support, and high-quality education and care in your child’s formative years.
