Your child’s first steps to learning begin at First Grammar Gumnut Drive. Our long day care and early education centre provides child care in Langwarrin that is perfect for families living or commuting through nearby suburbs Skye and Cranbourne South.
We are across the road from Woodlands Primary school, with nearby public transport and local shops just a short walk away. 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.
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.
We have everything covered here at our Langwarrin 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 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. These fun and engaging programs enhance the daily program.
Educators and children venture out into the local Langwarrin 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. We have a calendar of events, where each month we celebrate what is going on in our local community, some activities include, Chinese new year, Diwali, mothers day, grandparents day, etc.
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.
