FROM BIRTH TO SCHOOL
Our educators deeply care for children and love to watch them grow from babies to "big kids."
We have many programs that enhance the learning experience of our children and make childcare fun.
Winston Mall Children's Centre is divided into 3 age-based rooms - Joeys, Wallabies and Kangaroos - to cater for all needs and learning stages of the children.
As the children develop their skills they will progress through the rooms and eventually be ready to move onto indpendent learning at primary school.
In 2018, WMCC invested in a custom designed outdoor learning space for the children.
The new area is a unique asset to the centre and was funded by a government grant.
It offers an understanding of sustainability, nature, Indigenous culture and sensory learning to encompass a multitude of learning experiences for the little ones.
The completely refurbished space includes a state of the art:
OUR EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS
