About Us

Kidz Place Early Learning Centre was the first private Preschool in the Hills District and opened its doors in 1943. A Long Day Care Nursery centre was added over 20 years ago and Kidz Place ELC is currently licensed for 45 children per day. As a small family owned childcare facility we are able to know our children and their families personally and aim to provide a real home away from home environment. Our motto is "your extended family". Kidz Place has two separate buildings, the Mainhouse which houses our 0 - 3 year old rooms and the Cottage which houses our 3 - 5 year old rooms.

      

The Mainhouse

The Mainhouse has two separate aged rooms. Buzzy Bees (0-2 years old) and our Curious Caterpillars (2-3 years old). Both rooms provide a homely and comforting environment for all children. The centre's kitchen and administration office are located in this building.

      

The Cottage

The Cottage is our purpose-built open plan classroom for our 3-4 year old Discovers Room and our 4-5 year old Explorers Room. These rooms do come together at some stages throughout the day, however, they are predominately separated for an age appropriate learning space and activities.

Our Huge Natural Backyard

Kidz Place ELC is set within beautiful, naturally shaded gardens giving the children protection from our harsh Australian sun. The gardens contain a recycled music wall, dinosaur garden with three large dinosaur statues and a sculpture / chiselling table, cubby house, bike track, sand pit and mud patch with a mud kitchen. This enables the children to go on adventures, role play, make mud pies and explore. We teach the children about gardening and nutrition with our veggie patches.  Most importantly, the garden provides a large grassed area with plenty of space for the children to run and explore. 

      

    

  

       

Veggie Garden

At Kidz Place ELC we have two veggie patches!

The children decided they wanted to learn about gardening and how to grow their own produce. Together we chose what vegetables we were going to grow and we also learnt about what vegetables grow in our weather.

The children help water the vegetables to help them grow. They are very interested in learning about growing their own produce, gardening and healthy eating!
