First Grammar Gumnut Drive
Spacious areas designed to inspire
From the moment you walk through the doors of our Langwarrin child care centre, you’ll be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to learn and explore. Our adventure-filled playgrounds feature sandpits, natural gardens, vegetable gardens, cubby houses, climbing forts, and play equipment to engage all the senses. 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.
Healthy meals freshly prepared in-house
Here at our Langwarrin child care centre, you don'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.
High-quality early learning programs
Every day presents a new opportunity for learning experiences at our Langwarrin early education centre. For an additional fee your child can have access to engaging specialised programs, including a sport and music and movement program. We offer an active and exciting kindergarten program with qualified Early Childhood Teachers, the convenience of meals and extended hours to fit in with your busy days. Our kindergarten program is the perfect way to support your child’s school readiness in an engaging way.
Educators and children venture out into the local Langwarrin community on excursions to nearby parks, shops, and schools. We have great community connections with excursions to Woodlands Primary school, we walk down to our local shops where we will buy fruit with the children and we often do cooking experiences with our cook and educators. 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.
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.

“Absolutely love this daycare centre, the educators are amazing and go above and beyond for the children and parents. The days my child is not in care she wants to go visit the educators. Amazing place and highly recommended.”
“Have had my children here since 2007 and the loving care they provide to my kids has been wonderful. The staff are all magnificent carers and educators.”
“My son has been attending since he was 5 months old and is now nearly three. The educators have always been nurturing, knowledgeable and the centre support staff and management are also amazing and accommodating; nothing is too much trouble. I highly recommend this centre!”
“My son first attended a different child care centre in the area, we had some concerns with the way the centre was run and tried him in First Grammar in Langwarrin. We have been extremely happy with the way he is looked after and educated, we are extremely happy with management and staff. Our 1 year old daughter now also attends as well.”
“As a working mum I use to worry about leaving my children from such a young age but I have to say I wouldn't have had it any other way. The care the children receive and the individual attention is brilliant.”
