We’re part of your village at Community Kids Empire Bay Early Education Centre. Our early learning and long daycare centre is ideally located for families living or commuting through Bensville, Killcare Heights, and Empire Bay.
When popping into our Community Kids Empire Bay Early Education Centre, you will experience a world where children are inspired to explore, learn and grow. Our large, open space environment includes a playground, 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.
We have 2 centre pet guinea pigs who go home with families on the weekend. We provide all their food and bedding, so all you have to do is enjoy their cuddles!
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 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. Our parent bar also means that you can grab a tea or coffee to enjoy whilst your at work along with some snacks such as biscuits or a cup of soup.
Each day is a brand-new adventure at Community Kids Empire Bay. We regularly welcome special community guests to the centre based on the children’s interests. Our local emergency services visit us yearly along with other great community members such as Cleanaway, take 3 for the sea and living safely with dogs.
Throughout the year, educators and children venture out to our local Empire Bay community visiting nearby parks and local nursery where we purchase seasonal items for our hands on vegetable gardens. 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.
We offer an engaging sustainability program teaching 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.
