Childcare Centre

At our long day care centre, Castlemaine Childcare Centre, we aim to provide a secure and loving environment.  We deliver a child-centred program of experiences where children can learn, develop and grow with the support and guidance of our highly qualified staff.

Our centre is conveniently located close to the centre of town and is easily accessed by buses and trains.  Our building, which is part of the heritage streetscape, has been extended and renovated over the years to include spacious play areas both indoors and out, with a focus on natural materials throughout.

We maintain Educator to child ratios above required regulations.  We offer separate facilities for each year age group and keep our groups small.

Our excellent staff are highly educated and supported with professional development opportunities to maintain and build on their existing skills in line with new developments in early childhood education.  Low staff turnover encourages long-term relationships for children with their educators.

Families from all backgrounds are welcome and the program includes input from all cultures.

Children with additional needs are included in the program in close consultation with parents.

The centre is registered with the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) and licensed by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) and operates in accordance with the National Law and Regulations.
