We’re part of your village at Community Kids Mornington Early Education Centre. Our early learning and long day care centre are ideally located for families living or commuting through Mornington, Mount Martha, Moorooduc and Mount Eliza.
From the moment you step into our Mornington child care centre, you will experience a world where children are inspired to explore, learn and grow. Our spacious outdoor environments include climbing equipment, a water play area, sandpits, and a vegetable garden to engage all the senses. Children are provided time and space for uninterrupted play. They explore the outdoor spaces to test their limits and develop strength, balance, and self-confidence.
We are a small family-oriented centre with a big focus on nature and Bush Kinder, which we offer three days a week to the Pre – Kinder and Kindergarten rooms. We try to stay connected with the local community and venture out on Community walks whenever we can.
Our indoor environments invite exploration with quality resources and learning experiences. Children marvel, create, and test 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 offer engaging specialised programs designed to grow physical and cognitive development, including a music and movement program, yoga and Bush Kinder.
There is no need to worry about packing lunch and snacks for your child or dinner three nights a week. 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. Allow us to treat you to a hot coffee and a snack during your morning drop-off.
No two days are the same at Community Kids Mornington. Educators and children venture out to excursions to our local Mornington community visiting nearby parks, nature reserves such as The Briars, Coolart Wetlands, Healesville Sanctuary and more. Children also visit the zoo, library, beach and museum. 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.
