Your child’s first steps to learning begin at First Grammar Bendigo. Our long day care and early education centre provides child care in Bendigo that is perfect for families living or commuting through Flora Hill or nearby suburbs Spring Gully, Kennington, and Quarry Hill.
From the moment you walk through the doors of our Bendigo child care centre, you’ll be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to learn and explore. Spacious outdoor play areas featuring a large yard and play equipment for children to learn through play.
Children are provided the time and space for uninterrupted play as they explore the outdoors to test their limits and develop strength, balance, and self-confidence. Being outside supports children’s overall health and wellbeing.
Our indoor spaces invite exploration with quality resources and learning experiences. Children wonder, create, and test out their ideas as they play with a range of materials in purposeful play spaces. Our team of experienced educators plan play-based learning experiences around children’s interests and learning goals. Literacy and numeracy concepts are embedded in play-based learning, as children engage as architects, storytellers, scientists, artists, and designers.
We have everything covered here at our Bendigo child care centre, so you won’t need to worry about preparing lunch or snacks. Nutritious meals are made daily by our in-house cook, catering for all dietary requirements. Shared mealtimes between children and educators strengthen relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices.
Every day presents a new opportunity for learning experiences at our Bendigo early education centre. For an additional fee your child can have access to engaging specialised programs, including a sport and music and movement program. These fun and engaging programs enhance the daily program.
Educators and children venture out into the local Bendigo community on excursions to nearby parks, shops, and schools. We welcome special guests and community members to the centre based on the children's interests.
Our centre also celebrates regular cultural events reflecting the diversity in our local community.
Neighbourhood connections support a sense of community and belonging for children and provide opportunities to develop social and observational skills with different people, places, and environments.
As members of our First Grammar community, we look forward to partnering with you to provide information, support, and high-quality education and care in your child’s formative years.
