We’re part of your village at Community Kids Ashford Early Education Centre. Our early learning and long day care centre is ideally located for families living or commuting through Kurralta Park, Forrestville, Keswick, Wayville and Everard Park.
From the moment you step into our Ashford child care centre, you will experience a world where children are inspired to explore, learn and grow. Our spacious outdoor environments includes sandpits, cubby house, vegetable garden, water play area and obstacle courses 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.
Our centre is surrounded by large trees with natural play spaces, vegetable gardens and cubby houses that create a homely backyard feel for children to discover and explore at that own accord. Our service is located close to the local park that allows children to adventure on community walks and to become familiar and confident with the world around them.
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 all dietary requirements. Shared mealtimes between children and educators grow relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices. Allow us to treat you to a hot coffee and a snack during your morning drop-off.
Each day is a brand-new adventure at Community Kids Ashford. Your child will have access to an alternating schedule of specialised programs including bush kinder, yoga and cooking classes. These fun and engaging programs enhance the daily program.
Throughout the year, educators and children venture out to on excursions to our local Ashford community visiting nearby parks, schools, supermarkets and aged care facilities. We also regularly welcome special community guests to the centre based on the children’s interests including annual dental check-ups. 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 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.
