"At Kid Central we understand that children learn in a variety of ways. As much as they can learn within our walls, they’ll learn an equal amount through their personal experience outside of our walls, in the community."
Through their interaction with peers, teachers and the broader community children will discover new things about themselves and the world around them – giving them a sense of where they belong. Our inclusive teaching environment – where children learn together provides them with opportunities to strengthen community membership and become part of sporting teams, community groups and join in social events. We’re currently involved in a number of community groups and events that provides the opportunity to see pillars of our community in action. These include:
Police, Fire Department and Ambulance services to help children learn about their role in our community
Charity events and fundraisers held at our centers
Joined to local libraries
Visiting our local schools
Local environmental heroes & workers who visit the center to teach recycling & gardening
Community based excursions and incursions
It’s all about helping children be aware of the world around them.
Supporting Our Environment
We also believe in encouraging children to learn about environmental and conservation issues – don’t worry, we do it in a totally fun way. At Kid Central we engage with communities to show our support in many aspects. This includes:
Using natural and recycled materials
Being water wise
Learning how to recycle
Caring for our vegetable garden
Raising and caring for animals
Natural Play areas
Indoor outdoor play flow
All this helps instill a sense of responsibility for all living things, great and small while encouraging their imaginations to run wild. To really get a feel and experience our centers, we recommend taking a tour – just ask us!
