Community Kids Montebello Early Education Centre

We’re part of your village at Community Kids Montebello Early Education Centre. Our early learning and long day care centre is ideally located for families living or commuting through Mount Gambier, Suttontown and Worrolong.

From the moment you step into our Montebello child care centre, you will experience a world where children are inspired to explore, learn and grow. Our spacious outdoor environments include a dry creek bed, a water play area, sandpits, cubby house, chickens, 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.

At Community Kids Montebello Early Education Centre, we believe children learn best through positive experiences and interactions with the world around them with support from the educators they feel connected with.  

Therefore, we utilise community walks to provide children with real-life learning opportunities and build their sense of belonging within the local community.   

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 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.   

Throughout the year, educators and children venture out to excursions in our local Mount Gambier community visiting nearby parks and the local aged care facility. We regularly welcome special community guests to the centre based on the children’s interests, including a dentist.  

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.

Our Family Support Team are happy to chat through your child care needs. Call them today on 1800 411 604 to book a tour at our centre, meet our team of educators, and learn more about why these first five years are so important for your child’s development.
