Community Kids Clinton Park Early Education Centre
Spacious areas designed to inspire
From the moment you step into our Clinton Park child care and early education centre, you will experience a world where children are inspired to explore, learn and grow. Our spacious outdoor environments include a water play area, sandpits, cubby house, and a worm farm 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 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.
Exciting early learning programs
Each day is a brand-new adventure at Community Kids Clinton Park. We have a dedicated, experienced team of educators, some of whom are fluent in other languages such as Tamil and Tagalog. Your child will have full access to a rotating schedule of specialised programs designed by our experienced early childhood educators. You will receive daily photos and updates of your child's learning and development through our parent app - Xplor.
We offer an engaging sustainability program teaching the children a sense of responsibility and connection to their world. Our program includes a connection to animals cared for in our service; guinea pigs and chickens, as well as a back garden ran by our Sustainability Officer.
Throughout the year, educators and children venture out to excursions in our local Clinton community. We visit Bunnings regularly to engage in sustainability experiences and plant care. Our children also visit the Clinton Park state school for Meet and Greets with the teachers and to participate in events such as Under 8's Week. Our centre holds quarterly events with Reptile Education and Safety Training (RESTA). We also have a strong focus on inclusion and work closely with Inclusion Support Queensland.
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.
Our Family Support Team are happy to chat through your child care needs. Call 1800 411 604 to enquire or book a tour at our centre, meet our team of educators, and learn more about why these first five years are so important for your child’s development.
