Ashwood Children's Centre
Ashwood Children's Centre is a community based, not-for-profit early childhood education and care service, offering long day care and funded 3yo and 4yo Kindergarten programs, for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years.
We challenge ourselves to strive towards the highest standard of practices in early childhood education and care and our educator team works hard to create a safe, nurturing environment where children feel a sense of belonging, and can feel confident to explore, learn and grow.
A sense of belonging and secure, nurturing interactions and relationships are fundamental in encouraging children's learning and development. ACC's educator team develop and implement play-based programs derived from observing and documenting the individual interests, needs and learning abilities of all children attending the Centre. These programs subsequently provide all children with the capacity to develop their physical, social, emotional, language and intellectual skills.
From the moment families discover ACC through their first visit to Centre, to the excited farewells as 4yo Kindergarten children transition to primary school, we are extremely honoured to travel the path of early childhood with you and your family.
