About Us

Herne Hill Child & Day Care Centre - Kindergarten & Preschool Near Me in Geelong

Welcome to Geelong World of Learning! (Herne Hill)

We here have a dedicated team of early childhood educators in our centre whose primary purpose is to give your child the best early education experience they can. We operate between the hours of 6:30 am and 6:30 pm for your convenience meaning there is ample time for drop-offs and pick-ups throughout the day.

Our early education program is built off of the Early Years Learning Framework (ELYF) whose three main pillars: Being, Belonging, and Becoming are woven into our day to day activities. Combined by our natural learning environments, we create the perfect space for your child to experience and learn about the world around them. In addition to this our kinder teacher runs a 5 day kinder program.

We aim to incorporate the children’s home and community life into our centre to encourage the children’s sense of wellbeing by extending their interests from home within the centre as well. We encourage family and child participation throughout the centre and work side by side with families to develop relationships and bonds with the children that will build their stepping stones for their future.

Each child’s health and wellbeing is of upmost importance to us at Geelong World of Learning. To support this, we run a Happy Feet program every Monday in our toddler, pre-kinder and kindergarten room as well as another optional class on Wednesdays. We also like to include incursions into our learning program as much as possible including Safe Pets and visits from our local fire brigade.

We are currently working on a vegetable garden at our purpose built centre and hope to include some of our fresh produce in the nutritious meals we provide daily.

Our doors are always open to new and enquiring parents, so please feel free to to visit or call the centre to organise a tour. One of our friendly educators would be happy to show you around our amazing facilities and showcase why early education at Geelong World of Learning would be best for you. Look forward to seeing you!

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.

Reviews and Testimonials

See what some of our parents say about our centre:

“My 8 month old daughter attends Geelong World of Learning two days a week and has done so since she was 5 months old. I can’t believe how fantastic this centre is. I was really nervous when I first had to put her into day care at such an early age but Chantal and the rest of the team are absolutely brilliant. My daughter loves going to day care and gets to experience a whole host of different activities that she wouldn’t normally get to do. The carers are just wonderful with her and she loves them! We actually live in Bannockburn but couldn’t get her into care there. I’m really glad that they didn’t have a space for her now because I’m so happy with how she’s treated and has blossomed since attending Geelong World of Learning. There are only a few babies in her room at the moment so she’s getting lots of attention! I’ve already recommended this centre to many friends and some of them have also enrolled their children. Basically I can’t speak highly enough of this centre or the carers.”

“Our girls love Geelong World of Learning. The staff are professional, caring and very approachable. The girls feel very comfortable in their care and the centre in well run. The rooms are filled with so many activity stations and are bright and inviting. The kids learn so much about themselves and the local community through well organised experiences. I absolutely love the kindy hub as it gives me a chance to follow up with my kids what their day entailed as that information is hard to come by without it. I read it every night with my kids and they show me with the photos what they have been doing. I find it hard to fault. Great choice!”

“My 2 girls have been attending World of Learning since January 2016. The staff have been great, very attentive to the girls needs and informative to us as parents. The centre has had a massive renovation, the rooms and play stations look clean, tidy & organised.”

– Kelly

 

“A lovely caring and friendly centre. The staff all acknowledge my daughter by name and get her involved in activities she enjoys as soon as she arrives. I feel comfortable leaving my child in their care.”

– Bronwyn
