We’re part of your village at Community Kids Mt Gambier Early Education Centre. Our early learning and long day care centre is ideally located for families living or commuting through Mt Gambier, Suttontown and Worrolong.
children are inspired to explore, learn and grow. Our large, natural outdoor play environments include a water play area, sandpit, 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 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.
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 that are ‘start right eat right accredited’ 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.
No two days are the same at our centre. Children and educators love to venture out on community walks into our local Mt Gambier community, with excursions to nearby locations. We also regularly welcome special community guests to the centre based on the children’s interests including librarians, emergency services, dancers and more. 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.
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.
