Welcome to Ferguson Street Kindergarten and Early Learning Centre

We provide care and education that puts your child’s needs first.

Our team of dedicated early childhood professionals aim to provide the highest quality “learning through play” environment, whilst working in partnership with families and the community.

We believe children are natural learners who investigate and experiment with their environment. We encourage children to engage in play which encourages their sense of exploration and investigation.

Across all of the Kekeco Childcare services, we have an overarching Business Philosophy.

“We are a team of dedicated early childhood Educators, entrusted with the health and well being of each child, within the highest quality “learning through play” environment, whilst working in partnership with families and the community”.

Our Curriculum

Children are natural learners who investigate and experiment with their environment, space and time and others in their group. Our curriculum encourages children to be outside in the large open yards which are filled with opportunities for children to get messy, as they engage in play which encourages their sense of exploration and investigation.

Our Programs and Points of Difference

Birthdays

Your child’s birthday is a special event in his/her life. To celebrate your child’s birthday we will make a special time for all the children to sing Happy Birthday and recognise how special it is that they are celebrating growing up. Families are able to share the day with the child if they wish by either sharing our service provided morning or afternoon tea with the group or other celebration activities. We will ensure that your child has a wonderful time with their friends. Please note that educators will not be responsible for distributing birthday invitations within the child’s class.

Inclusion

Our service is inclusive for all children, including those with additional needs. Our aim is to provide each child, regardless of their needs and abilities, with a supportive and inclusive environment that allows each child to fully participate in the program. Educators will remain positive, open-minded and honest at all times when working with families and external support Educators to positively meet the additional needs of each child being educated and cared for at the centre.

Language

Our services participate in E.L.L.A (Early Learning Language Australia) our language program is Indonesian. E.L.L.A. introduces children to learning a new language via interactive tablet apps, which have been developed in consultation with experts in languages, early childhood and technology. The Program is supported by Federal Government funding to provide the lesson plans and interactive programs online. This program is delivered primarily in the Kindergarten Room.

Sustainability

We encourage all children and staff to be creators, not consumers. Our Educational Leaders work closely with the staff at each of our services to ensure that we are using resources and equipment which is resourceful and recycled where ever possible. Our programs support children to understand and to care for their environment and reinforces the need to reduce, reuse and recycle where ever and whenever possible.

My experience at community kids is of a caring environment to leave my child. THe facilities are great and offer a healthy and delicious food menu. I find management at the centre very approachable and if there are any qeuires I have, I see immediate action. It is alwayts lovely to leave my child with such friendly staff, who make my child feel like she is the most special child in the centre. But I am sure that every other parent feels the same way! Thanks to all the staff!
Every time we walk in the door we are greeted with friendly smiles My daughter just loves coming to this centre which makes us very happy. :-)
