Child Care Centre - Book a Tour

Do you know your child’s brain undergoes an amazing period of development from birth to three—producing more than 1000 neural connections each second?

By the age of 3 years old, the majority of the brain would have been formed. Quality learning, stimulating experiences and a nurturing environment will give your child the best start.

A first class early education

Oz Education is one of the longest standing early education and care providers in Australia. For nearly 40 years, we have provided exceptional learning opportunities in a safe and nurturing environment.

We encourage learning through play for children aged 6 weeks to 2 years old through stimulating experiences that enhance their development including:

  • Talking and Listening
  • Communicating, Interacting, Reading & Thinking
  • Developing a routine (Learning, Playing, Feeding, Sleeping)
  • Developing gross motor and self-help skills (Walking, Crawling)
  • Building  social, emotional, problem solving and cognitive skills (Group playing).

We also provide a variety of skills based experiences that suit individual needs, abilities and interests from music, art, gardening to dance.

Early Learning Program

The day is divided between indoor and outdoor play where the children fulfill their curiosity as they explore and discover the world around them.

Our Advantage Preschool Program is an excellent progression when your child reaches 3 or 4 years old. The comprehensive curriculum provides a wide range of opportunities for children to develop new skills that enable them to grow into well-rounded, successful individuals.

Parents and carers are welcome to be involved in their child’s learning journey by volunteering at a reading session or stepping into their little world during community events like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
