We are centrally located in the heart of Shepparton offering Long Day Care, Three-Year-Old Kindergarten, Four-Year-Old Kindergarten and a Maternal and Child Health Centre.  

We engage in our local community, through routine and planned excursions.  Our location ensures our outings are regular and spontaneous supporting our children’s knowledge and understanding of their world. Our two six-seater prams ensures this is possible for our younger children to take part in the rich education and learning experiences.

Our educators are highly skilled, qualified and passionate in providing an inclusive and welcoming environment. All educators hold a minimum of Certificate 3 in early childhood education with more than 50 % already holding their Diploma or above. Our 3 and 4 year old kinder programs are run by highly qualified ECT’s who hold their Bachelor of Early Childhood. The kitchen is managed by our dedicated qualified cook who provides 4 healthy meals a day.

We have 4 working groups of educators who are dedicated towards Sustainability, Auslan, Reconciliation and the wellbeing of children and educators. They ensure we are providing rich and valued education towards these areas.

Each child’s learning and developmental journey is documented and families are engaged and involved throughout this process. We offer flexible routines, with indoor/outdoor experiences where children’s interests are at the forefront of our educational programs.

All of our educators hold qualifications ranging from Certificate 3 in Early Childhood Education, Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Bachelor of Early Childhood.
