Community Kids Heatley

We’re part of your village at Community Kids Heatley Early Education Centre.  Our early learning and long day care centre is ideally located for families living or commuting through Heatley, Vincent, Gulliver, Aitkenvale and Cranbrook. We are conveniently close to Townsville Shopping Centre and Aitkenvale State School. You’ll find us just off the Bruce Highway.

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.

Extending upon experiences at school and at home, our Before and After School-aged care programs provide children with a positive social environment designed for play, leisure and learning. Children participate in diverse experiences, allowing them to be physical and creative and have time to relax before or after the school day.

Our school holiday care program offers school-age children (aged 5 – 12 years) time to unwind and spend time with friends during school holidays.  

When you step into our Heatley child care centre, you will experience a world where children are inspired to explore, learn and grow. Our expansive outdoor environments include climbing equipment, sandpits, cubby house, 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 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 incorporate many extracurricular activities into our weekly schedule that includes music, swimming, a health and wellness program, the Ready Steady Go sports program and the Managing Big Emotions program.  Our centre offers school hours care and vacation care for children up to age 12. 

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.  

Each day is a brand-new adventure at Community Kids Heatley. We regularly welcome special community guests to the centre based on the children’s interests.  

Throughout the year, educators and children venture out to excursions in our local Heatley 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. 

We offer an engaging sustainability program teaching the children a sense of responsibility and connection to their world.  

We also make monthly donations to Ronald McDonald House to help sick children. 

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.
