Lane Cove’s newest child care centre is open and the kids are going to love it, as First Learning Child Care Centre is purpose built with kids firmly in mind.
The centre incorporates many innovative details and designs to ensure your child’s educational experience is one to remember. Both the indoor and outdoor spaces are designed to stimulate the senses. It’s all about promoting creativity and exploration.
First Learning Child Care is proud of their larger than regulation required learning spaces, and unique environment. Each room is designed to resemble a family home, and specifically to cater for individual age group needs. The Centre has limited numbers in each room, creating smaller group sizes, for example, the 0-12 month age group room has a maximum number of 7 children. This along with the warm, soft spaces assists ease the settling in process. The staff encourage families to bring in family photos for the family walls, which create a sense of familiarisation for each child.
The playground and its landscaping is stunning and has built in features such as sand pits, tee pees, a cubby house and much more, to stimulate every childs playfulness. By also incorporating a beautiful garden and veggie patch, the children will learn to focus on their environment and sustainability. The children will be able to help pick the veggies, which will be used for their meals by the centre’s in-house chef (sounds more like a five star resort than a child care centre!).
Ellen Simmons is First Learning Child Care’s owner and she is incredibly excited about what she has created. ITC went to the Open Day and was blown away by the large spaces, the attention to detail and the enthusiasm of the staff.
The centre is located in Lane Cove West Business Park and they have a bus available to pick up kids in Lane Cove. They can also offer after school care for parents (which would be ideal if you work in Lane Cove West Business Park).
