Located adjacent to bushland and the Yarriambiack Creek, Warracknabeal Child Care Centre has been providing long day care services to our local community in a beautiful, native setting since 2007.

We specialise in providing educational programs that provide challenging and creative learning opportunities for all children. We are in a community hub with a kindergarten, maternal child health centre, primary school, high school and special development school nearby.

Our experienced, passionate educators bring an array of talents to our centre, well qualified to help your children further develop their self-esteem and skills.

Environment

We love exploring the outdoors at our centre! We have a large veggie garden and two apple trees. Children love to pick and enjoy the sweet, juicy apples our trees produce. With plenty of outdoor and indoor spaces, equipped with modern facilities, our environment offers a variety of space and support for every child to thrive.

Our early learning centre features:

  • Easily accessible outdoor space
  • Sandpit
  • Herb and vegetable gardening beds
  • Shade sail
  • Play area with climbing equipment
  • Cubby house
  • Mud kitchen
  • Gross motor play equipment for activities such as climbing, skipping, throwing and catching

Activities

After school, children often retreat indoors to play on devices, but at Warracknabeal Early Learning Centre we provide activities to allow children to make the most of the outdoors! Children at our centre foster a relationship of respect and stewardship for the environment through key sustainability activities and initiatives such as recycling. We also encourage parents to donate recycled items for art and craft activities!

One of our educators is a dance teacher and another is in a local band. They often share their talents with the children. It’s lots of fun for everyone involved!

Health and wellbeing

We understand the importance of healthy eating in children’s early development. That’s why we provide highly nutritious food full of diversity and flavour made from fresh and homegrown ingredients. We educate children and their families about healthy eating and nutrition so you can be confident you’re making the right food choices for your little ones.

Family and community

We are eager to learn about the cultures of our families. We invite our families to our centre to share a wide variety of cultural experiences such as cooking. Our families bring in traditional dishes to share flavours from home and afar with the children.

Previous cultural days have seen children dress up in traditional clothes, paints national flags, and make cultural artefacts such as Chinese lanterns. These educational experiences are invaluable because they allow children to celebrate and understand the different cultures of their peers.

Various people, groups or services within our community that we engage with regularly include:

  • Local primary schools
  • Wellbeing practitioners
  • Local kindergartens
  • Maternal child health
  • Local Shire
