Amazing childcare Centre.

I did field placement here many years ago. It was a great place to learn from. I only hear positive feedback.

Hayley H

Both my boys went there and I have been really pleased with the staff and the great times they have had at the Center.

Damien H

Both of my boys attend/attended happy valley community childcare Centre, the eldest left the end of last year to go to school and what a beautiful young boy all the educators helped him become.

My youngest is still there in the junior room and all the educators help him in every way possible to be his happy little self.

I don’t do pick ups/drop offs all that often but when I do all the educators make me feel welcome. It’s a joy to be apart of such a nice Centre!

My sons went here. It backs on to the kindy and they walk them through the gate when they are 4 years old. The is perfect for working parents. They are accredited, not for profit; & parents can join the committee. Very professional. I Loved the reports I received on their development and friendships.

Keep up the great work!

Our Mission

As acknowledged community leaders we advocate the significance of the early years of life.

We believe:

Children are central to our philosophy and that positive relationships, built on secure attachments and trust and listening to children are essential for a child’s early learning.
In valuing each child as an individual and acknowledging that parents know their child best. We work in partnership with families to support the home culture and build on our understanding of their child.
By experiencing respect, kindness, fairness, acceptance and empathy, children can develop and learn to express these qualities themselves.
Our Centre has an aesthetically pleasing, friendly atmosphere and that everyone who enters is welcomed and valued as an individual.
That curriculum is negotiated by children, early childhood Educators, family and the community and is inclusive of all routines, interactions and experiences.
Children learn through play as they engage in exploration, imagination and experimentation and as they interact socially with adults and their peers.
That during periods of transition, children and families should take as much time as they need to build trust with Educators and to feel comfortable and secure in their environment.
In promoting respect for all people in recognising and celebrating the similarities and differences, diverse backgrounds and abilities of everyone in our community.
