Four Rooms of Fun and Learning
Across four bright, spacious rooms we educate and care for children aged 1 to 3 years old with a ratio of 1 educator to 4 children.
We run a flexible, integrated program that supports children’s emotional wellbeing. Each child’s intellectual, physical, social and creative abilities are stimulated and supported. We focus on child-directed play and learning, where educators guide and mentor through a range of integrated teaching and learning approaches.
We recognise and value the primary role that families play in their children’s lives and engage in family-centred practice to support shared decision making about their child’s learning and development.
Each room has a team of dedicated qualified educators with 70% diploma qualified and a room leader that supports the staff in the delivery of the educational program. Our Management and Administrative team supports and guides the staff to implement the Early Years Learning and National Quality Frameworks.
Our rooms open onto our shared yard within a natural setting and is an integral part of our program. We encourage and foster care for the environment and sustainable practices.
- Gumnut room – 12 children
- Wattle room – 12 children
- Banksia room – 10 children
- Waratah room – 16 children
The centre operates from 7.30am to 6.00pm. Nappies, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a light late snack is provided.
Our staff develop strong collaborative partnerships with families in diverse ways that actively support parents as the first teachers of their children. Our volunteer board and sub-committees are parents of the children attending. They dedicate their time and expertise to making our centre welcoming, caring, stimulating and positive.
All educators participate in professional development sessions throughout the year to strengthen their existing skills and knowledge. Each educator has:
• Diploma of Children’s Services or
• Certificate III Children’s Services or equivalent
• Working with Children Checks
• Level 2 First Aid
• CPR training
• Anaphylaxis training
Some of our staff have been employed at KCCC for lengthy periods providing children and families with stability, consistency and quality education and care. Our newest additional team members are welcomed to our staffing group bringing fresh ideas, knowledge and experience to our service.
