Spacious and resource-rich environments  

Crest Road Early Learning Centre in Queanbeyan provides a nurturing and enriching early learning environment that fosters exploration and curiosity. 

The outdoor environments at our Queanbeyan child care centre include climbing equipment, bikes and a vegetable garden. Our outdoor learning program focuses on the development of your child’s strength, balance, and self-confidence. Our indoor learning spaces offer a variety of engaging environments for the children to learn and grow. Our experienced educators and teachers use these to design various age-appropriate play-based experiences.   

Dedicated and passionate team of educators

At the heart of our Queanbeyan child care centre is our longstanding team of early childhood educators and teachers with some team members at the centre for over 5 years. 

Our team of passionate and qualified early childhood teachers and educators are dedicated to ensuring every child feels safe, nurtured, and inspired throughout their early education journey. 

Play-based early learning curriculum  

At our Queanbeyan child care centre, we recognise the importance of play in a child's learning and development journey. Our team tailors play-based learning activities in line with national standards, specifically the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), helping prepare them for kindergarten and school readiness. 

Our Early Learning Curriculum also provides children with:

  • Sustainability Program: Each age group participates in a sustainability project that help children embed sustainable practices into everyday life. Children learn about recycling, conserving water, growing food and the importance of looking after and protecting our planet.  
  • Community engagement activities: We often have visits from local community librarians, and other community services in Queanbeyan to help familiarise the children with their local community. We also have excursions to our local primary school to assist our preschool children with their transition to "big school".  
Delicious and healthy meals prepared on site  

Our Queanbeyan child care centre provides children with nutritious, unprocessed, and seasonal whole foods. Our menu rotates every four weeks to cater to diverse dietary requirements. We actively involve children in food preparation to promote healthy eating.
