About this centre

Alexandria Child Care Centre has 66 places available catering to children from 6 weeks to 6 years of age. Our qualified and experienced educators place a strong focus on quality interactions and education designed to prepare your child for school.

Our program is based on the National Early Years Learning Framework, which focuses on children's interests, strengths and individual needs. Our educators work closely with the children to develop a play-based program that is enriching and encourages collaborating with peers, making choices while building on their strengths and emerging skills. The experiences we offer foster children's social, creative, language, cognitive and physical skills.

Healthy, nutritious meals and snacks are served throughout the day.

The centre is open Monday to Friday from 7.30am to 5.30pm. It's closed on public holidays, staff development days and for a short period between Christmas and New Year.
