Carinya Early Learning is a family owned and family run childcare centre.

We are located across the road from Westfield in Chermside. There is parking underneath our centre, across the road from us and also behind us which makes for a quick and easy drop off.

We offer caring and qualified staff that are passionate about their jobs and passionate about making this the best childcare centre we possibly can.

Because we are a small centre of 28 children per day, we are able to form very strong bonds with each child and their family giving our centre a "Family feel".

We are an "Open Centre" which allows all the childern in different age groups to play and learn off each other which is very beneficial for all children and also siblings! it gives siblings the chance to play with each other during all parts of the day.

Parents that are part of the Carinya Early Learning Family are encouraged to download our app which allows us to send photos and videos of your child directly to your mobile throughout the day. You can also check nappy changes, toileting and what your child has had to eat and drink.

If you are looking for a caring environment for your child then come in and speak to Harry about booking your spot in our centre!

My son started at Carinya at the beginning of the year and he loves it so much that he is sad when he cant go to day care on the weekends! What a hidden gem this centre is!! A small family run centre that is ALL about the kids! The progress my son has made in these first few months is mind blowing - he has gone from a boy who barely speaks or socialises to having friends and absolutely adoring ALL of his teachers even now clearly saying their names! I would highly recommend Carinya for anyone looking for a child care (and/or kindy) in the Chermside area! :-)

Each and every staff member genuinely care about the wellbeing of the children. They really take the time to engage and learn about each child as an individual and support their individual quirks and personalities. I am just so very grateful for the loving care that they provide my grandson who is so excited to be attending each day. Thank you.

My child has been going to this learning centre for a while now and I can say without a doubt, that I have no concern with any form of neglect or incompetence from the team on site. The centre is always kept in good conditions, and they perform in a very professional manner engaging with parents to ensure all needs and desires are meet (to reasonable standards) for your child. When incidents do occur they are reliable and responsive in there treatment and reporting.

Kids World has been fantastic for our baby girl, she's been attending for the last year (from 6months old) and absolutely loves it. The staff mirror such a positive learning environment that is full of love and care.. Made our need for childcare so much easier! Highly recommend!
