Community Kids Berwick Early Education Centre
Spacious areas designed to inspire
From the moment you enter our child care centre, you will experience a haven where children are inspired to explore and learn. Our adventure-filled playground includes a vegetable garden, sandpits, exciting climbing equipment and forts to evoke discovery and 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 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. All rooms have age appropriate resources to better equip each child’s learning.
Dedicated team of educators
Our longstanding team of educators are passionate about nurturing and caring for children and supporting them on the early learning journey. Our educators bring their own personality into the rooms allowing for engaging learning environments and building strong relationships with the children.Our educators place a large emphasis on allowing kids to learn at their own individual pace. We understand that communication is critical between our staff and families and partner with our families to keep you informed every step of the way. You will also receive daily updates and photos detailing children’s learning and development on our parent App - Xplor.
Healthy meals prepared in-house
You’ll never have to worry about packing lunches or snacks. We provide healthy, freshly made meals created daily by our in-house cook catering for all dietary requirements, offering healthy seasonal meals that children love to eat. Shared mealtimes between children and educators strengthen relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices. As part of your busy morning routine, pop into our breakfast station to pick up a snack and hot drink, available to go.
Community-focused early learning
