We’re part of your village at Community Kids Innisfail Early Education Centre. Our early learning and long day care centre is ideally located for families living or commuting through Mighell, Goondi Hill, Cullinane, Webb, and South Innisfail. We are conveniently located right next to Innisfail State High School and a short distance to Innisfail East State School.
From the moment you step into our Innisfail child care centre, you will experience a world where children are inspired to explore, learn and grow. Our large outdoor environments include play areas, climbing equipment and sandpits, 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.
Extending upon experiences at school and home, our Before and After School Care and Vacation Care programs provide school-aged children with a positive social environment designed for play, leisure and learning.
We provide healthy, freshly made meals 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 Innisfail. We regularly welcome special community guests to the centre based on the children’s interests and offer age-appropriate learning along with a range of extra-curricular activities, such as fitness and music programs. We also celebrate Diwali, Mother's and Father's Days, enjoy festive activities around Christmas and Easter and get involved with what’s happening within our community especially our first nations people's traditions and cultures.
Throughout the year, educators and children venture out to excursions in our local Innisfail 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.
Our centre offers a courtesy pick up and drop off bus and a vacation care program for children from 5-12 years old. We make life easier for our parents with extended operating hours and affordable fees. Our vacation care programs has a variety of activities with a focus on fun and learning! Your child will have endless amounts of fun with a mix of in-centre activities, indoor and outdoor play and visits to the community.
