Plainland Kindergarten and Childcare

Centre Philosophy

Here at Plainland Kindergarten & Child Care Centre we acknowledge the Yuggera & Ugarapul people as the traditional custodians of this country and their connections to land, water & community in which we operate.

We believe children are competent & capable of co-constructing their own learning, and develop their own knowledge of the world around them. There fore we feel the early years are the most critical stages of a child’s development. As their Educators we have the responsibility to do all we can to maximise these important and magical times. We achieve this through providing rich play-based learning environments that allow opportunity for each child to make positive choices in regard to their own learning. We recognise that children are embedded with natural curiosity, and we utilise that through open-ended play opportunities that supports confidence, self-awareness & develops social skills.

All families are welcomed & provided with warmth & care just as much as their child. Relationships are built overtime with mutual trust, sharing of information & working collaboratively to achieve successful outcomes for all children. We value each child individually and offer a warm & safe environment filled with love & care that fosters a sense of belonging. 

We believe in strong and nurturing connections with the wider local community, supporting small local & family run businesses, working closely with schools and engaging with community health professionals to ensure all aspects of the family are supported & recognised. We believe that being culturally competent is about building relationships that support. promote & embrace cultural differences.

Our program and practices at Plainland Kindergarten and Childcare is based on the Early Years Learning Framework, this guides our Educators in their curriculum decision making and part of an ongoing cycle to assist in planning, implementation & evaluating all children’s learning. Educators intentionally scaffold children’s understanding & learning by making use of spontaneous & intentional teachable moments to extend on children’s learning & development.

We use reflective practices & review programs regularly to ensure continued quality care across the whole service.

LIFE-LONG LEARNING BEGINS WITH US

OUR STORY

We believe that hands-on, experiential learning is the best educational approach for children and we do this through a strong connection to nature and the outdoors, interest-lead learning, emergent curriculum, a play-based focus, enquiry-based teaching style and authentic play. When children’s natural curiosity is encouraged, learning flows organically.

Our educators are highly experienced and qualified. We pride ourselves in having staff who have a good mix of both the educational foundations as reflected in the ‘paper’ certificate, and who also have built on this foundation a strong structure of practical experience. We believe creating a culture of life-long learning begins with us!

WHEN CHILDREN’S NATURAL CURIOSITY IS ENCOURAGED, LEARNING FLOWS ORGANICALLY

OUR ACCREDITATIONS

WHAT PARENTS SAY ABOUT US?

The cheerfulness and the exuberance that the staff show on a daily basis is a testimonial to their passion for child care. Our kids come home filthy with dirt in places unimaginable but they are the happiest we have ever seen them. I could not recommend Plainlands Kindergarten & Child Care more highly to any parent that may be dubious about sending their child to child care – they will LOVE it!

Matt and Alicia

We choose the centre because of the engaging environment that children have that connects with nature and play-based learning. Staff were welcoming, understanding and above all, focused on the children’s well being. The communication with parents is exemplary and the care, support and organisation within the centre is second to none. We couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Plainlands Kindergarten & Child Care family!

Just wanted to say that Kristy and the staff at PLKCC have been more than accommodating and willing to provide the best opportunities for every child (and their family). You go above and beyond every day to make the child’s day enjoyable and the parents at ease. Thank you
