We’re part of your village at Community Kids Lavington Early Education Centre. Our early learning and long day care Centre is in the heart of Lavington, ideally located for families living or commuting through Lavington and nearby suburbs Springdale Heights, Ettamogah, Hamilton Valley and Glenroy.
When popping into our childcare centre, you will experience a haven where children are inspired to explore and grow. Our spacious outdoor areas include swings, slide, bike track, boat, and 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 offers care for children from 18 months old.
Community Kids Lavington offers fantastic age-appropriate educational programs, designed to enhance each child’s growth and development. Our outdoor play space offers a large spacious play area for all ages. Here at Community Kids Lavington, we have a qualified Centre cook catering meal for all children’s needs and requirements.
Our Centre offers a well-planned Outside School Hours Care program catering for school-aged children (5 to 12-years old). Our Before and After School Care programs have various activities that focus on fun and learning! With our Vacation Care program, your child will have endless amounts of fun with a mix of in-centre activities, indoor and outdoor play and visits to the community, including the movies, laser tag and ten pin bowling.
We also have a courtesy bus to assist with pickups and drop-offs.
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 provide healthy, freshly made meals and snacks created daily by our in-house cook, catering for all dietary requirements. Opportunities to educate children on healthy eating practices are displayed as educators encourage children to assist in selecting edible plants from our vegetable garden which are used in many of our meals. Communal mealtimes between children and educators grow relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices.
Your child will have access to an alternating schedule of specialised programs including music and movement. These fun and engaging programs enhance the daily program.
No days are the same at Our Lavington centre. Our educators and children explore our local community with regular excursions to the library, Bunnings, Fly Gymnastics, nearby parks and aged care facilities. We are also involved in a transition program with Campbelltown Public School.
We organise a range of educational children’s shows including musical shows and welcome special guests to the centre including the local library, Steps who offers eye tests and KU inclusion support to extend on the children’s learning.
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.
