Essendon Kids new purpose built centre has been designed for kids. With bright spacious rooms an inviting atmosphere, and lots of natural light. We have paid particular attention to detail in order to stimulate the natural curiosity of children.
Each room is full of fun brand new age – appropriate toys and equipment to ensure that each child’s learning experiences are both fun and educational. We have a number of active play spaces, which are both indoor and outdoor, enabling children to develop their gross motor skills, whatever the weather.
The younger children have a separate sleep room enabling them to maintain their individual routines. They also have their own rooftop garden designed especially for them to explore.
Each room opens to our living playground designed for children to get close to nature. We encourage children to walk through the garden beds, touch the plants, and dig in the mud and sand pits. Water the garden and vegetable patch when we have water available in our tanks. And also play on the outside play equipment which is assembled differently every day.
We have healthy, well balanced nutritional meals for the children cooked daily in our on site kitchen. A viewing room is located on the 1st floor. This allows parents a window into how the centre works and the activities the children participate in throughout the day.
