Welcome to Pumpkin Long Day Care Centre

Welcome to Pumpkin Long Day Care!

Welcome to Pumpkin Long Day Care, where every child's journey begins with love, laughter, and learning. We believe in creating a nurturing environment that fosters curiosity, creativity, and growth. At Pumpkin, we cater to children from infancy through preschool age. Our comprehensive programs include full-day care, permanent and casual days, and enrichment activities designed to stimulate young minds and bodies. We embrace a play-based learning philosophy that encourages exploration, problem-solving, and social interaction. 

At Pumpkin, we are committed to providing a high-quality early childhood education experience that reflects the principles and standards set forth by the National Quality Standard (NQS) and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). Our service is founded on the belief that every child deserves the best possible start in life and that their early years are crucial for laying the foundation for lifelong learning and wellbeing. Our preschool room offers a comprehensive school readiness program designed to nurture the cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development of young learners. We believe in providing a supportive environment where children can thrive and develop the foundational skills necessary for a successful transition to formal schooling.   

At Pumpkin, we take pride in our low staff turnover, which contributes to creating calmer, more stable environments in our class rooms. This aspect of our service is fundamental to fostering a sense of security, consistency, and trust among children, families, and staff members alike. 

We invite you to explore our website further, schedule a tour to see our service in person, or reach out to us with any questions you may have. We look forward to welcome you and your family into our community!

Centre philosophy


Educators believe children are capable and resourceful learners who are active contributors to their own learning. Educators actively observe and engage with children, so they can consistently incorporate children’s ideas, knowledge, ability and culture into their program and practices and to enhance children’s learning and development. 

All children are seen and respected as individuals, who are learning/developing at different rates. Educators value, respect, appreciate and see each child as a unique and capable individual. Children have a right to be accepted for who they are, be valued for what they bring ad be protected from harm at all times. Children’s best interests are paramount. 

Therefore, we embrace a child-centred program based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) for Australia: Belonging, Being and Becoming. As guided by the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), we work alongside each child to actively promote individual children’s learning through worthwhile and challenging experiences and interactions that foster high-level thinking skills.
