We’re part of your village at Community Kids Chirnside Park Early Education Centre. Our early learning and long day care centre is ideally located for families living or commuting through Chirnside Park, Croydon, Mooroolbark and Lilydale.
From the moment you step into our Chirnside Park child care centre, you will experience a world where children are inspired to explore, learn and grow. Our spacious outdoor environments include sandpits, climbing equipment 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.
Our centre is proud to have received Exceeding the National Quality Standard. The National Quality Standard encompasses the seven key quality areas that are important outcomes for children’s learning and development.
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.
We offer a rotating schedule of specialised programs designed to grow physical and cognitive development, including music and dance.
You won’t need to worry about packing 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 Chirnside Park. As part of the children’s learning experiences, children and educators love to venture out into our community with excursions to the nearby primary school and shopping centre. We also regularly welcome special community guests to the centre including Inspiro Community Health and dentists offering dental screenings.
We offer an engaging sustainability program teaching ‘Small Green Steps’ the children a sense of responsibility and connection to their world.
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.
