Learn About Active Kids Homebush
Established in 1997, Active Kids Homebush is a long day care centre in Homebush West and is only a short walk from Flemington train station. Our child care caters for children aged 8 weeks to 6 years old and incorporate a school readiness program for our preschool age children.
We have a team of qualified Early Childhood professionals with many years of experience within the industry. Our child care centre coordinator, Denise, has been part of the AKG family for over 10 years. Our educators have a sound understanding of the EYLF and are able to develop meaningful play-based experiences for all children that will extend and challenge their learnings.
Our day care has a warm and friendly atmosphere that welcomes you into our large open classrooms. Our rooms are designed for open learning opportunities to ensure each child will learn, engage and grow in a stimulating environment that caters for their needs and optimal development. We also have a purpose built children’s mini kitchen where children can engage in their own cooking experiences.
At our child care in Homebush, our curriculum based program encourages an effective and strong partnership with the community and families. This contributes to each child’s love of learning when providing a link between home and the centre.
Children’s documented learning and daily experiences are accessible to all families via Kindyhub, our online communication platform. Our educators are also available to speak with you and your family on a daily basis.
We offer a School Transition program that helps prepare final year pre-schoolers for that next step – primary school, whilst helping them become more confident and independent in a social learning environment.
Sustainability plays a major role in our curriculum and is embedded into our centre on a daily basis. We have a purposely built nature garden with plants, herbs and a worm farm to support children in becoming environmentally responsible and show respect for the environment.
Our chef works on-site 5 days per week and prepares fresh nutritious meals including breakfast, morning tea, hot lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. We have a 4 week rotating seasonal menu and cater to all children’s needs including any special dietary requirements.
We offer reduced rates through our sliding scale fee structure. Children who attend multiple permanent days of care will benefit from lower rates that decrease in price as attendance increases.
