See how we’re united in a love of learning at Thuringowa World of Learning (Kirwan). Our long day care and early education centre provides child care in Kirwan that is perfect for families living or commuting through nearby suburbs Bohle Plains, Heatley, Mount Louisa, and Thuringowa Central.
From the moment you walk through the doors of our Kirwan child care centre, you’ll be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to explore and learn. Our spacious outdoor environments 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.
We offer Before and After School Care for children from 5-12 years old with a positive social environment designed for play, leisure and learning. Our Vacation Care programs has 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 community.
You won’t need to worry about preparing lunch or snacks – our Kirwan child care centre has this all organised for you. Nutritious meals are prepared 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 Kirwan child care centre. Your child will have access to engaging specialised programs, including a sport and movement program. For an additional fee swimming lessons are provided for children over three years. These fun and engaging programs enhance the daily program.
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.
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.
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.
