Learn More about Our Programs

Our Promise

The program and practices of Plainland Kindergarten & Child Care are based on philosophies of Loris Malaguzzi and Jean Piaget which is regularly reviewed in consultation with KCC management, the educators and the families who attend the service.

Centre Philosophy

Here at Plainland Kindergarten & Child Care Centre we endeavour to provide a welcoming environment for our children and community that is loving, positive and educational. We believe that every child deserves to be treated equally, respectfully and have their cultural backgrounds and individual uniqueness celebrated. This will be achieved each day by a child led, emergent curriculum that delivers quality learning through the children’s interests in a holistic, nurturing environment.

Just like the children, each of the families in our community is different and unique. The diversity of our communities and family structures is what makes our service extraordinary. We believe celebrating these differences within our educational program so the children develop their own sense of connection. We will work in partnership with our families and communities to ensure that the best opportunities are provided for all the children in our care and the best outcomes for their learning are achieved.

The early years of a child’s life lays down the foundations of who they will be when they are an adult. With this knowledge in mind, our team will work together to guide our children to be confident in themselves, strong in the face of adversity and provide them with opportunities to explore their world and develop their own sense of belonging.

Our task is to help children communicate with the world using all their potential, strengths and languages, and to overcome any obstacle presented by our culture – Loris Malaguzzi

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!

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
