Environment and location

Canberra Road has been caring for and educating local children for more than 20 years. Our centre is located in a quiet suburban street, next to the Canberra Road Reserve playground.

We access many nearby community facilities to enhance the children's learning program, visiting the oval, playground, shopping centre, library and more!

We cater to every child’s individual needs in a warm and nurturing environment and get to know each child and their unique personalities and interests.

Every family is a valued part of our centre community. Children thrive as a result of our strong connection and collaboration with parents.

Spacious outdoors

Families often tell us how much they love our spacious and well-resourced outdoor spaces. We have two separate play spaces, one for babies and toddlers, and a larger playground for preschoolers.

Children enjoy gardening, engaging in art and riding trikes and balance bikes. Our slides and sandpit with water play are also popular.

Our playground features natural play environments, perfect for exploration and building imagination. Our 'outdoor classroom' also promotes learning and development.

Our team

Families value our team for their warmth, kindness and expertise, as well as the consistency of familiar faces. Some of our Educators have been with Children's Services for well over a decade.

Our Educators’ talents and interests influence the children’s diverse learning curriculum. We have a passion for art, music, sustainability and cultural experiences. Some of our Educators are bilingual and one is a practicing artist.

Preschool program

Our quality preschool program includes a deliberate combination of intentional teaching and spontaneous learning. It also reflects the children’s interests and each child’s learning goals.

We foster every child's love of learning. Children who are inspired to learn will thrive in every aspect of their development.  They will ask questions, process information, try new things, be happy to share and collaborate, develop friendships, join in games, and know they belong to a community of learning.

Our creative early education programs follow the Australian Government's Early Years Learning Framework, the only government-approved learning framework for children under school age.

Our preschool program fosters:

  • Language (learning new words, following directions, sharing news and stories etc).
  • Cognitive growth (concepts such as time, advanced memory games)
  • Pre-literacy
  • Pre-numeracy
  • STEAM experiences (science, technology, engineering, arts and maths)
  • Fine motor skills (pincer grip, cutting, pasting, holding a pencil, drawing, writing name)
  • Gross motor skills (hopping, jumping, skipping)

Social and emotional skills are also important for primary school. We focus on children's development in these areas:

  • Emotional resilience (self-regulating emotions, expressing emotions in a way that others would expect)
  • Self-care skills (e.g. caring for belongings, tying shoelaces, toileting by themselves)
  • Making and maintaining friendships
  • Starting conversations with others
  • Problem solving skills
  • Developing resilience
  • Sharing and taking turns
  • Compromising, cooperating and working in a group with other children.
  • Learning to adapt to changes in routines
  • Knowing when and how to ask for help
  • Empathy and caring for others.


‘The Educators are fantastic. They go above and beyond every day to make my child feel safe and comfortable.’

‘We consider ourselves very lucky to have our child learn and thrive here and wouldn't change that for anything. With all honesty, this is a world class centre with the best possible educators.’

‘The spaces are beautiful and the Educators are knowledgeable, kind and loving towards my children. My youngest started at 7 months and they have been so helpful with her settling and communicating with me. I get daily feedback and photos of their days and great communication of other activities that are planned.’
