Centre Highlights

Spacious and resource-rich environments 

Community Kids Pascoe Vale is designed to be a home away from home that encourages every child’s exploration. Our resource-rich early learning environments have been carefully designed to immerse your child into a world of exploration, curiosity, and learning.   

The indoor learning spaces in our Pascoe Vale child care centre feature natural resources and interactive whiteboards for educators to utilise while planning programs. Each learning space extends onto our spacious outdoor environment that features beautiful decking, pergolas and plenty of established trees, which encourages endless ways and opportunities for play! Our outdoor environments include climbing equipment, sandpits, soft fall areas and vegetable patch for children to safely develop their strength, balance, and self-confidence through play. 

Dedicated and passionate team of educators

Our team of passionate educators make up the heart of our Pascoe Vale childcare centre. We know each child has unique talents and interests. Our experienced educators are passionate about helping every child succeed in discovering their identity and become confident, happy and resilient learners.

We have long standing early childhood educators who have been at the service for 18 years. Our small class sizes allow our educators to better focus on each child's individual learning goals. Our educators move with the children each year to ensure consistency. We are a multicultural early learning centre with several languages being spoken across our team including Arabic, Turkish, Filipino, Krio, Liberian English, Chinese, Greek and Nepalese. 

Play-based Early Learning Curriculum

Play is essential to every child's learning and development. It enables children to make decisions, learn, take risks, and have fun. At our Pascoe Vale 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 harvesting the veggie garden, caring for our worm farm and basic cooking skills.  
  • Sustainability Program: Each age group participates in a sustainability project that help children embed sustainable practices into everyday life. Children learn about recycling, conserving water, growing food and the importance of looking after and protecting our planet.  
  • Music and movement programs: Our music programs have been designed to help develop fundamental skills that help support children’s self-regulation, memory and concentration. Children learn to appreciate and develop an understanding of music - and of course have fun while doing so! We have Mini Maestros that visit us weekly on Tuesdays that is free!  
  • Community engagement activities: We have support from our local Preschool Officers and Inclusion Support officers which supports educators and aims to improve the inclusion of children with additional needs. We also have excursions to our local park Kelvin Thomson Park and local primary school Pascoe Vale and Pascoe Vale North primary schools to assist our Kindergarten children with their transition to ‘big school’. Throughout the year, educators and children venture out on excursions to our local Pascoe Vale community visiting nearby aged care facilities and primary school. We regularly welcome special community guests to the early learning centre based on the children’s interests. 
Delicious and healthy meals prepared on site

We provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack to all children at our Pascoe Vale childcare centre. Our centre chef creates nutrient-rich, fresh and seasonal whole foods to please even the fussiest of eaters. For variety, our menu rotates every fortnight, catering to the unique dietary requirements of every child including Halal.
