Community Kids Pascoe Vale Early Education Centre
Spacious areas designed to inspire
From the moment you step into our Pascoe Vale child care centre, you will experience a world where children are inspired to explore, learn and grow. Our spacious outdoor environments includes climbing equipment, 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 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.
Healthy meals freshly prepared in-house
You won’t need to worry about packing breakfast, lunch and snacks for your child. We provide healthy, freshly made meals created daily by our in-house cook, catering for Halal and all dietary requirements. Shared mealtimes between children and educators grow relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices.
Dedicated educators and high-quality programs
Our longstanding team of educators strive to create a calm, comfortable environment where each child feels safe. The highly trained team of educators are focused on supporting the children and their learning. The centre is well resourced and each area is specifically designed with young learners in mind. You will receive daily updates and photos detailing children’s learning and development on our parent App - Xplor.
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 centre based on the children’s interests including the principal from the local primary school. 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 specialised programs designed to grow physical and cognitive development, such as Jump for Joy and a Sports Education Program (Little Sports Heroes). We also offer an engaging sustainability program teaching the children a sense of responsibility and connection to their world.
Victorian Government approved Kindergarten Program
Our Kindergarten program is supported by the Victorian Government. Our centre proudly offers a kindergarten/preschool program to ensure your child is supported for their transition to school every step of the way. With a focus on language, literacy, numeracy, social skills and more your child will become school ready.

"We really love CK a lot for the dedication, the love and the fantastic level of care that the educators and the staff put in during the stint that we sent our daughter there. We’re leaving the centre for a logistic reason and feeling really sad looking back on the wonderful journey at CK. To all new parents out there who are considering sending your little one to daycare- This is the place and don’t hesitate a second! Nothing beats seeing your children receiving top care and love from other people in society!
Thank you Gemma and the team at CK, in particular Rina and Priyanka from the babies room! We will miss you a lot and we’ll definitely get back onto the queue in the future if things work out for us!"
