Community Kids Austral
Spacious areas for curious minds
As soon as you walk through the doors of Austral Before and School Care centre, you will experience a world where children are inspired to explore, learn and grow. Our adventure-filled playgrounds include a dry creek bed, cubby house, and a vegetable garden to engage all the senses. Children are provided time and space for uninterrupted homework and play, and as they explore the outdoor spaces to test their limits and develop strength, balance, and self-confidence.
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.
Dedicated team of educators
Our multicultural team of longstanding educators strive to create a calm, comfortable environment where each child feels safe. The highly trained team of educators are hand-picked to support the children and their learning. Our team creates learning spaces that are responsive to children’s ages, interests, play schemas and developmental capabilities. You will receive daily updates and photos detailing children’s learning and development on our parent App - Xplor.
Healthy meals prepared in-house
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.
High-quality early learning programs
Our childcare centre proudly offers a kindergarten/preschool program to ensure your child is supported for their transition to school every step of the way. With a focus on language, literacy, numeracy, social skills and more your child will become school ready.
Each day is a brand-new adventure at Community Kids Austral early education centre. Throughout the year, educators and children venture out to excursions to our local Austral community visiting nearby parks and nature reserves. 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.
Our school holiday care program offers school-age children (aged 5 – 12 years) time to unwind and spend time with friends during school holidays. The program provides daily variety, focusing on fun and learning through a mix of indoor and outdoor play.
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.
