United in a love of learning at Geelong World of Learning. Our early learning and long day care centre is nestled in the heart of Geelong, ideally located for families living or commuting through Geelong or nearby suburbs Geelong West, Belmont, South Geelong, Newtown and East Geelong.
When stepping into our child care centre, you will experience a world where children are encouraged to explore and learn. Our spacious outdoor areas include sandpits, cubby house and a vegetable garden which encourages children to discover and embrace their outdoor environment. Children are encouraged to explore the outdoor areas to test their limits and develop strength, balance, and self-confidence.
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.
Nutritious meals created daily by our in-house cook with halal options available. 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.
A rotating schedule of specialised programs including music and movement, yoga and sports to develop fundamental skills and enhance the daily program.
Our educators and children explore our local community with excursions to nearby schools, the library and marine discovery centre. We regularly present educational children’s shows and welcome special guests to the centre including emergency services to expand on the children’s learning. Neighbourhood connections support a sense of belonging for children and offer opportunities to develop social and observational skills with various people and places.
We offer an occasional care program for children from 4 – 12 years old. Our occasional care programs have a variety of activities with a focus on fun and learning. Your child will have endless amounts of fun with a mix of in-centre activities, indoor and outdoor play, and visits to the local community.
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.
