Community Kids St Helens Park Early Education Centre
Spacious areas designed to inspire
As soon as you step into our St Helens Park childcare centre, you will experience a world where children are inspired to explore, learn and grow. Our spacious outdoor environment includes a sandpit, vegetable garden, purpose built yarning circle, water play area, and a cubby house 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. You will also receive daily photos, meal and nap times, as well as updates of your child's learning and development through our parent app - Xplor.
Healthy meals freshly prepared in-house
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 and cultural requirements. Shared mealtimes between children and educators grow relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices.
Community-based early learning
Here at Community Kids St Helens Park child care centre, we have great community connections with our local community and participate in regular excursions including local bakery, local school, local botanical gardens and bushwalks (we are lucky enough to have beautiful bushland behind our centre). We have a variety of sports activities that children participate in each week including martial arts classes, shake and move program and Mandarin language classes. We also regularly welcome special community guests to the centre based on the children’s interests. We have a variety of community members that visit our centre including emergency services, dentists and optometrists, Aboriginal Elders, Cultural Performances, and so much more.
Community kids also supports local charity organisations and have built a great relationship with one of our local support services “We are Community Incorporated”. Our educators, families and children play part in our sustainability program at the service daily. Community Kids St Helens Park is close to schools, shops and nearby public transport.
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.

“We LOVE Community Kids!! Our daughter started there in 2019 in the nursery room as a little 5 month old and the educators have been nothing short of amazing with her. They are so kind and patient, they provide such wonderful service I look forward to sending her each day and seeing what exciting activity she gets up to!”
