See how we’re united in a love of learning at College Kids World of Learning (Calamvale). Our long day care and early education centre provides child care in Calamvale that is perfect for families living or commuting through nearby suburbs Calamvale, Parkison, and Algester. We are conveniently located close to Calamvale Community College with easy access to Beaudesert Road.
Extending upon experiences at school and at home, our Before and After School-aged care programs provide children with a positive social environment designed for play, leisure and learning. Children participate in diverse experiences, allowing them to be physical and creative and have time to relax before or after the school day. Read more about school-aged care here.
Our school holiday care program offers school age children (aged 5 – 12 years) time to unwind and spend time with friends during school holidays. The program provides daily variety with a focus on fun and learning through a mix of indoor and outdoor play.
At College Kids World of Learning has several different areas throughout the two acres we are set out on. We have an art room, outdoor shed area, lounge room, technology room, and a homework space. Our outdoor area has many gardens to look after where we can do paddock to plate like experiences. We have a yarning circle area for you to unwind and have some quiet time outdoors as well as a basketball court, playground, and large sandpit. During School Holidays we do a number of excursions around the community, but we also venture out of our Community to museums, theme parks, and more. We have several incursions as well that range from cultural experiences to Laser tag and even farm animals.
When you walk through the doors of our Calamvale child care centre, you’ll be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to explore and learn. Our adventure-filled playgrounds feature sandpits, natural gardens, cubby house, slides, vegetable gardens, 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.
There’s no need for you to worry about preparing lunch or snacks – our Calamvale child care centre has this all organised for you. 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.
There are new experiences to engage in every day at our Calamvale child care centre. Your child will have access to engaging specialised programs, including a sport and music and movement program. These fun and engaging programs enhance the daily program.
Our educators and children venture out on excursions to Parkinson Duck and Pond Park, Lakewood Avenue Park and other areas in the local Calamvale community. 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 host Mother's Day, Father's Day and Grandparents Day at our service. We do morning Fresh Breakfast to go for the families where we put our a buffet of easy to eat food with a goody bag to take on these special days to give them a nice start to their mornings. We dress up for all the special events that match up to the schools throughout the year for example Book Week, Christmas and even celebrate children’s birthdays throughout our service.
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.
