We believe that children are our future, each special and unique. At Creative Learning and Play, we encourage positive relationships so that Children can feel valued and loved, and learn the basic skills of life through meaningful experiences.

We believe in creating a stimulating learning environment through play, as this supports children to explore experiment, enjoy and discover their physical, social, emotional and intellectual world around them. Our program is designed to cater to children’s individual interests, needs and varying levels of development, whilst having the flexibility to be spontaneous and non-restricting.

The Centre opens at 6:00am and closes at 6:00pm, Monday to Friday all year round.

We close all weekends and public holidays.

This centre keeps a waiting list. Every effort will be made to accommodate everyone who requires care. We welcome any children with special needs and will take measures to provide the appropriate care required.


The children within the Creative Learning and Play Centre are grouped according to their age. Three age groups exist:

  • 0-2 years,
  • 2-3 years,
  • 3-6 years.

Siblings are encouraged to visit each other during the day, especially during settling.


We also believe that the care taken when settling your child in will assist you in leaving your child for the first time. You will have an opportunity to talk with the staff, watch them working with the children and ask questions when you are not so rushed. We understand and appreciate that children respond in different ways when separating from their parents. We will always attempt to respond to those varying needs.

The following may be helpful:

  • Pre-enrolment visit(s) are encouraged.
  • Parents are encouraged to spend some time with their child for the first few occasions (according to needs) and to allow staff to gradually take over.
  • Feel free to telephone during the day to check on your child’s progress.
  • It is recommended that the first day for the child should not be too long a period – gradually increase the time to give the child reassurance that the parent is coming back for him/her.
  • Staff will report to parents regarding the child’s day and are happy to discuss any concerns.
  • When your child becomes ready to move up into the next age group our friendly staff will discuss this transition with your input.
