United in a love of learning at Chelsea World of Learning 1. Our early learning and long day care centre is nestled in the heart of Chelsea, ideally located for families living or commuting through Bonbeach, Carrum, Chelsea Heights, Edithvale and Seaford.
Step into our centre and you will experience a sanctuary where children are encouraged to discover, learn and grow. Our adventure-filled playground includes a vegetable garden and other exciting play equipment for children to learn through play. Children are encouraged to explore the outdoor areas to test their limits and develop strength, balance, and self-confidence.
We offer education and care for children aged 6 weeks to 2.5 years. We work closely with Chelsea World of Learning 2 which provides education and care for children aged 2.5 to 6 years. We offer a Vacation Care Program and Before and After School Program to St Joseph Primary School Children.
Our team become a part of many of our families support network just like your family members. Many of our team members are long servicing educators who have been with the centre in some cases 10+ years and because of this we have a strong connection to our local community, not just in our centre but within Chelsea and at our local schools. We have and continue to look after many of our families not only for their first child but their 2nd, 3rd or 4th all while generally still looking after their first child who may still attend our school holiday programs or OSHC.
Our indoor spaces encourage exploration and discovery with engaging resources and learning experiences. Children marvel, 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 offer healthy, freshly made meals created 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. Other opportunities include educators encouraging children to assist in selecting edible plants from our vegetable garden which are used in some of our meals.
Engaging schedule of specialised programs including Jump for Joy. These programs are regularly available to your child and enhance the daily program.
Educators and children venture out on excursions to our local community visiting shops and parks. We regularly present educational children’s shows and welcome special guests to the centre including doctors to extend on the children’s learning. We have a big focus on celebrating many different in-house events throughout the year, focusing on different cultural events and we are well known for our great annual Halloween party and Christmas events. Community connections support a sense of belonging for children and offer opportunities to develop social and observational skills with various people and places.
Sustainability philosophy embedded at our centre teaching children to care for the environment. Children learn about sustainability practices through our vegetable garden while harvesting food, weeding, watering, and nurturing the environment.
As members of our World of Learning community, we look forward to partnering with you to provide information, support, and high-quality education and care in your child’s formative years.
