Welcome to River City World of Learning.
Our centre is conveniently located under the All Hallows School with access via Dodge Lane in the Brisbane CBD.
The centre is open from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm and provides quality long day care and education for children aged six weeks to six years.
Our experienced and qualified educators provide programs based on the Early Years Learning Framework including a specialised School Readiness program taught by a bachelor qualified teacher; aimed at preparing children for school and beyond.
Our childcare centre proudly offers a kindergarten/preschool program to ensure your child is supported for their transition to school every step of the way. With a focus on language, literacy, numeracy, social skills and more your child will become school ready.
In addition to quality educational programs, our centre also provides nappies and nutritious meals for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
We have an Indigenous Mentor, Uncle Boomerang, who visits the centre once a month to teach the children about Aboriginal history and culture. Uncle Boomerang is a much-loved member of our extended centre family and we all look forward to him visiting each month. As we value children’s physical development and promote healthy life choices, we have a Yoganastics program at the centre. Yoganastics is a weekly event here at the centre for all children. The learnings of culture, wellness and mindfulness are so important, so we have included them as a service at no extra cost to families.
We welcome you to contact the centre or drop by at any time to meet the team and learn more.

Reviews and Testimonials
See what some of our parents say about our centre:
“The level of care and education at the centre is simply exceptional! The educators go above and beyond and ALWAYS have a smile on their faces and a spring in their step. It is obvious that the educators truly love the children and that they are so invested in their care, wellbeing and learning. The Kindyhub app is AWESOME to receive daily learning documentation and I feel fully informed of what is happening in the centre all the time. The centre is clean, new and looked after and the meals are superb – in fact, I’d love to stay at Kindy for lunch! The team at River City World Of Learning are amazing and I couldn’t recommend the centre any higher!”
“My son has attended Rivercity since he was nearly one and is now leaving to start school. Over this time, I have loved that he is known, welcomed, cared for and been loved by all the staff in the centre. Rivercity is well run centre with with a great atmosphere. As a parent, I love that quality food is provided and that the huge outdoor play area is permanently shaded from both sun and rain. In summary, we are very sad to be moving on from this community and would recommend Rivercity highly”
“The staff here are friendly and responsive to children’s needs. My daughter has been going there for over a year and can’t wait to go to “school” each day. The centre is continually improving and provides a safe environment for children.”
“The warmth and care shown towards my children has been so reassuring. Staff are very understanding of children’s individual needs and development. My daughter loves the activities she gets to engage in each day she attends.”
