Are these the designer childcare centres of your dreams?
A well-planned early childhood environment is top of the list for any parent looking for just the right childcare centre for their child. Some centres are taking the idea several steps further with some boasting water play parks, an array of Montessori play environments and child-led teaching and learning programs.
And looking at the photos of the new breed of centres, it’s little wonder parents are clamouring to get their children in. Kids ELC has just launched its thirteenth multi-million dollar centre in Brisbane, complete with facilities to make your jaw drop. The new centre offers ‘relaxation retreats’ and a water park, as well as a pool where children have swimming lessons with an accredited swim instructor.
The rooms can be accessed by discovery tunnels which link the children’s cafeteria and food laboratory, where children experiment with making food, and the art studio, which offers sewing, sculpture, painting and drawing tasks. The centre’s philosophy is based on Reggio Emilia, which places the child in charge of his or her own learning and the educators as facilitators.
It has a swimming pool, a mini water park and the rooms are connected by tunnels – AND it’s surprisingly affordable.
A new centre opening in Springwood, Queensland might just have the answer to the water safety problem – it has a pool on site complete with licensed swimming instructors who can teach baby’s as young as six months basic water skills.
The new Kids Early Learning Centre (Kids ELC) looks pretty incredible, on top of the pool it has a splashy water play area and a food exploration laboratory where kids can discover their passion for food, a children’s cafeteria. It also has a dedicated art studio dedicated art studio offering painting, sculpting, drawing and sewing activities.
