Meeting National Quality Standard
We offer quality programs for infants, toddlers and preschoolers in our 11 Early Education Centres.
Hobart Place is a smaller-scale centre with a warm community feel. Most children move on to attend Illawong or Tharawal Public School together. They start school with the benefit of solid friendships formed at Hobart Place.
Our centre is close to Illawong Public School and Illawong Shopping Village.
In a beautiful bush setting, we love going on nature walks with Council’s Bushcare team to learn about our environment. This is an important feature of our curriculum.
Families value our picturesque and well-resourced ‘outdoor classroom’. The large playground has been recently renovated and features a sandpit, cubby house, teepee and mud kitchen for messy play.
Climbing is a favourite activity here! Under our large shade structure we engage in mobile play opportunities such as climbing and balancing to build motor skills and core strength.
The children are also avid gardeners and enjoy tending to our herb garden, veggie garden and compost bin. There are also quiet areas to relax.
Families tell us how much they value our caring and experienced team.
Strong connections are the foundation for every child to thrive. Parents value our collaboration and the secure attachments we build with children.
Hobart Place's learning program reflects our Educators' talents. Our passions include sustainability, fitness and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, maths) learning.
We're a culturally diverse team who enjoy sharing our heritage with the children.
‘Every day my daughter asks to stay longer. If that doesn’t sum up how much she loves the Educators and the welcoming, safe environment then I don’t know what would. Thank you, Hobart Place, for being part of our family.’
‘Our children grew up at Hobart Place, surrounded by beautiful people who are taking the best care of them. They LOVE going and we feel like the Educators are our extended family.’
‘Every single day you turn up with a smile on your face with bountiful positivity and energy. We are forever grateful for the comfort, love, education, play time, feeding (amazing food!), nappy changes and everything in between.’
