Inspiring learning for life at Crest Road Early Education Centre. Our early learning and long day child care centre is perfect for families living or commuting through or near by Queanbeyan, Crestwood, Queanbeyan East, Queanbeyan West and Karabar.
As you open the door to our centre, you will be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to explore, learn and grow. Spacious and natural outdoor areas including sandpits, water play area, vegetable garden and other exciting play equipment. Children enjoy uninterrupted time and space to explore the outdoors to test their limits and develop strength, balance and self-confidence. Being outside supports children’s overall health and wellbeing.
Our indoor spaces invite exploration with quality resources and learning experiences. Children wonder, create, and test out their ideas as they play with a range of materials in purposeful play spaces. Our experienced educators plan play-based learning experiences around children’s interests and learning goals. Literacy and numeracy concepts are embedded in play-based learning, as children engage as architects, storytellers, scientists, artists, and designers.
The centre kitchen is at the heart of everything we do. Enjoy the smell of freshly cooked meals as you step into our centre. There is no need to pack your child lunch as nutritious meals and snacks are created daily by our in-house cook catering for all dietary requirements including halal. Shared mealtimes between children and educators strengthen relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices. Let us treat you to coffee and a snack each morning.
We offer a wide range of specialised programs that are on a rotating schedule including a music and movement and dance program. These fun and exciting programs enrich the daily program.
Our educators and children explore the local community with excursions to nearby parks, ovals, and the library. We regularly present educational children’s shows, such as puppet shows and welcome special guests to our centre including an Aboriginal elder who comes in regularly to encourage children with educational cultural activities. An eye specialist provides yearly eye tests for the preschool age children.
As members of our Early Learning Services community, we look forward to partnering with you to provide information, support, and high-quality education and care in your child’s formative years.
