About

Welcome to Poka Dot Kids Wollongong!

Wollongong is our newest centre. We took over the centre at the end of 2017.

We take children 20 months to 6 Yrs. This centre has been completely remodelled. It is modern and energetic and has a fun vibe. Taking enrolments now and filling fast.

About Us

Poka Dot Kids Early Learning Centre believe in providing the highest level of care and education for children in a warm, nurturing and safe environment. By creating a feeling of acceptance and sense of belonging, we provide an environment which enables each child to feel safe and secure.

Each Centre provides educationally appropriate and stimulating programs to assist in the development of the whole child, their physical, social, emotional, cognitive, creative and moral growth.

Indoor and Outdoor experiences are provided in small and large group situations. These experiences cater for each child’s individual development and reflect current interests of the group or an individual child.

We recognize the value of play on development. Research has found that children attain higher levels of achievement through engaging in play.

We believe that each child, family and educator is a unique and valued individual.

We value and honour diversity and accept and celebrate differences in other people.

We believe each person and their family’s values, culture, beliefs, abilities and language should be acknowledged and accepted and reflected in the preschool’s environment.

Our philosophy reflects the full appreciation of Australia’s multicultural society, enhancing the children’s awareness of, and respect for, cultural differences and similarities.

Our programs are designed to help children in developing all areas for success now and in later years and to equip them with the necessary tools to deal with life.

Poka Dot Kids endeavour to create a “family-like” atmosphere and recognise the importance of creating a link between home and the Centre, where both parents and educators work in partnership to develop the child as a whole in a mutually supportive and caring environment. Children and parents are welcomed into the Centre regardless of culture, religious and family beliefs and our educators are sensitive to and respectful of these practices.

Got two of my kids to attend this service, and I could never be more happier for doing so. They just do everything very well... I could not say anything negative about their service. I feel safe for my kids whenever I leave them there. Also, they provide long care service -- opens early, closes late... perfect for working parents. Two thumbs up!

Staff at the centre are very friendly and from observation take genuine interest in the children and their need's. As a parent, it's good to see good communication about my son's behaviour and progress whilst in their care.
