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

To showcase our facility we have created a 3-D Virtual Tour with a dollhouse view and a highlight reel.

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

Learning Experiences

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 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!

Health and wellbeing

Children are encouraged to take responsibility for what they put into their bodies through activities that promote the importance of healthy eating and the nutritional benefits of fresh produce. Fun and practical education on food safety, cooking, and gardening give your child the knowledge and desire to make healthy life choices.

At Warracknabeal Early Learning Centre, we:

  • Grow our own produce in our garden (e.g. herbs, vegetables, fruit)
  • Practise and emphasise food safety
  • Work sensitively with parents and families from a range of cultural backgrounds to ensure cultural foods meet food standard requirements
  • Offer progressive snack and lunchtime to empower children to ask for what they want and when
  • Educate children and their families about healthy eating and nutrition
  • Encourage children to eat fruit and healthy options before other snacks
  • Give children input on what to grow and cook from our vegetable garden
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.

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
