123 4 Kids Early Learning Centre
Our family owned and operated centre extends quality care at affordable rates, with experienced educators and premium facilities to meet the needs of every Child.
At 123 4 Kids, we believe that every family member, child, and educator is a unique individual, bringing a variety of skills, knowledge and understanding related to that person’s unique experience of life. We value and nurture future growth through accepting the individual, supporting ongoing learning, offering comprehensive programs and promoting collaboration.
Our highly qualified educators provide and extend on the National Quality Framework, which facilitates education in all aspects of children’s learning. This framework builds on children’s strengths, skills, and knowledge to ensure the children develop a passion and understanding of education.
Gillian Smith – Centre Manager
I have been in the childcare industry for 7 years in many roles from Assistant to Assistant Director, holding my Diploma of Children Services since 2013. I have experience in working in Nursery all the way through to Kindy and I’m continuing to learn and study to better my knowledge within the childcare Industry. I have a passion for teaching not only the children but guiding and mentoring the Educators within our service.
Our curriculum embodies these beliefs as it responds to, expands and builds upon the ideas and interests of our children, families and educators, to ensure their motivation and engagement in learning.
Play provides opportunities for children to learn as they create social groups, test out ideas, challenge each other’s thinking and build new understandings. Our educators will give priority to facilitating children’s play through our curriculum decision making and providing our children and families with beautiful, engaging play spaces filled with expressions of the value we place on childhood. They will also help children to learn about their responsibilities to others, to appreciate their connectedness and interdependence as learners, and to value collaboration and teamwork.
Our Nursery is licensed for children aged 0-15 months old and caters for up to 8 children each day. The educators in the Nursery are very welcoming and make all families and children comfortable. Our nursery educators are very experienced and follow the same routine the children have at home.
Our Junior Toddler room is licensed for 10 children a day aged 15 months to 2 years. Our Toddlers are always on the go so our program is based around their individual likes. Children are able to choose a lot of their activities and are offered a lot of art / sensory activities and outdoor learning experiences.
The focus is always preparing the children for Prep therefore we spend a lot of our time learning shapes, colours, numbers and letters. We practice writing our names and picking our name out amongst other words. Children in this room are encouraged to use their thinking skills to resolve conflict.
Our Kindergarten room is where we really focus on independence and social skills. Children are given a “buddy” for their first week at 123 4 Kids. This “buddy” helps show the new child around their room and initiate friendships. Our Kindergarten room is licensed for a maximum 22 children per day.
