PlaySafeLearning is a purpose built centre that educates and nurtures children from 0 to 6 years old. The Centre is open Monday to Friday, 7.00am to 6.00pm and only closes on Public Holidays. Our Centre is located on 82 Caldarra Ave, Engadine and is close to public transport, primary schools and the local shopping centre.
The children’s Indoor rooms feature Learning Centres rich in age appropriate resources to stimulate learning based on the developmental needs and current interests of the children. This is a place where the children can begin to explore language, music and movement, science and the arts, to help them make sense of their world. The Early Learner’s (2 to 3 years) and Preschool (3 to 5 years) rooms have a dedicated IT station featuring desktop computers and iPads with Early Literacy and Early Numeracy programs.
There is onsite parent parking as well as pram parking available at the Centre. A Baby Care room is also available for visiting parents. As a part of our ‘Open Door’ policy we encourage parents to come and visit their child throughout the day and spend some time at the centre if possible.
All meals are prepared onsite in our commercial grade kitchen by our amazing chef. This includes Breakfast, Morning Tea, Lunch, Afternoon Tea and Late Snack.
The design of our Centre has had the input of Early Childhood professionals to ensure the daily operations of the Centre runs smoothly. The Centre features large rooms, with smaller numbers of children enrolled in each room ensuring a better quality of care is provided to each individual child. The Children’s Indoor environment overlooks two beautiful natural outdoor play areas, encouraging simultaneous indoor and outdoor play which is embedded within the PlaySafeLearning Curriculum.
The natural outdoor environment is an area where the children can be close to nature and learn how to respect, look after and protect their environment. Our Outdoor play areas feature sandpits, open forts, climbing and balance beam obstacle course, stepping stones, vegetable and herb gardens, natural shading protecting the children from the sun, and each room has an outdoor deck which provides the children with an area to enjoy meals as well as a retreat area for quieter activities such as reading, puzzles and much more.
Our Indoor and Outdoor learning environments are designed to encourage the children to interact, take on roles and develop relationships with others through play, whilst encouraging each child to value and respect each other’s differences and embracing everything new.
“We provide a place where childhood is a time to be, to seek and make meaning of the world, where everyone belongs”
