At our Narre Warren early learning centre, children marvel, create, and test out their ideas as they play with a range of materials in purposeful play spaces. Our outdoor environments feature climbing forts, sandpits and climbing equipment designed for children to safely develop their strength, balance, and self-confidence through play-based learning.

Our team of passionate early childhood educators make up the heart of our Narre Warren child care centre.

They are passionate about helping every child succeed in discovering their identity and become confident, happy and resilient learners. We are a multicultural early learning centre with several languages being spoken across our team.
Play is essential to every child's learning and development. It enables children to make decisions, learn, take risks, and have fun. At our Narre Warren child care centre, our experienced team plan play-based learning activities in line with national standards. The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) is designed to engage in your child’s interests and allow them to experience each day in a new way, supporting their learning in the lead-up to primary school.
Our Early Learning Curriculum also provides children with:
- Real Life experiences: Children participate in fun and exciting experiences such as woodworking, harvesting the veggie garden and basic cooking skills.
- Sustainability Program: Each age group participates in a sustainability project that help children embed sustainable practices into everyday life. The current sustainability practices that our centre has in place include a recycling program, gardening program and a water saving program.
- Music and movement programs: Our Hey Dee Ho program is designed to help develop fundamental skills that help support children’s self-regulation, memory and concentration.
- Yoga program: The children enjoy regular yoga sessions at the centre, where they learn about posture, strength and mindfulness.
- Community engagement activities: We often have visits from local community librarians, local police, and other community services in Narre Warren South to help familiarise the children with their local community. We also have excursions to our local Baringa Park Drive Reserve and Trinity Catholic Primary School to assist our Kindergarten children with their transition to ‘big school’.
At our Narre Warren early learning centre, we have a very passionate and experienced chef who has been with us for over a decade. We provide children with nutrient-rich, fresh, and seasonal whole foods created to please even the fussiest of eaters. For variety, our multicultural menu rotates every weeks, with our chef catering to the unique dietary and religious requirements of every child. Our menu is reviewed every season, with out families participating in the ideation of new menus.
