Learn About Active Kids World Square
Active Kids World Square (City) is located in the heart of the Sydney CBD and can be accessed via World Square and World Tower. Our child care centre in Sydney CBD has been operating for 15 years and is driven by a strong, dedicated team of long serving educators. Our day care centre coordinator, Evelyn has worked with Active Kids World Square since February 2011. Active Kids World Square has been rated “Exceeding” National Quality Standards by the Australian Children’s Education & Care Quality Authority (ACECQA).
Each member of staff is committed to providing the highest level of Early Childhood Education. Our dedicated and passionate educators strive to assist each individual child to develop holistically in an inviting, caring and structured environment. Through effective and strong partnerships with families we provide a curriculum based on the children’s interest and love of learning.
We provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. We also offer a Bath Time service for Nursery aged children.
We also use our own parent communication app. Designed exclusively for all families at Active Kids Group. Our secure parent portal, facilitates effortless parent involvement at all times. This is a great tool for parents to help track children’s progress and offer input and feedback in relation to their child’s learning. The Active Kids Group app is designed to enable parents to participate holistically in their child’s experience through photos, notes and stories. Through a secure and private log-in, parents gain access to snapshots of the day.
At our day care in Sydney’s CBD, we engage with our local community and encourage visits from the Navy, Police, Fire and Rescue along with dentists, doctors and members of the aboriginal community. We invite a number of external incursions to come and visit our service including Reptile shows, Braveheart’s and Bandage Bear. We also bring the children on excursions to events such as NAIDOC in the Park, Lunar New Year in World Square and also to Castlereagh Fire Station where the children get a chance to meet members of the CBD community first hand.
We also celebrate a variety of different events throughout the year which reflect all our World Square families’ backgrounds and the surrounding community.
AKG supports the continuity of professional development and growth of our educators through our very own AKG Professional Development Program with regular workshops and training which ensures our educators continue to strengthen their practices. This Professional Development assists in building our educator’s current skills and knowledge which in turn leads to ensuring the children attending our centre all achieve success.
Active Kids World Square consists of a purpose-built centre complete with natural environments, a museum, an art and craft room as well as a community library. Each room is warm, inviting, bright and structured to assist each individual child to learn, investigate, discover and explore. We have separate modern cot rooms for our under two’s and toilet training facilities for our over two’s.
Our extended family consists of fish and our large outdoor area features a spectacular natural garden where we also care for our rabbits Hip and Hop.
We provide up to three days of orientation designed to build the relationship between the educators, the family and the child. This gives the families and educators a chance to meet, the child a chance to become familiar with the new environment and their educators and also allows the educators a chance to get the know the child and their interests and to set achievable goals over the coming months.
Centrally located in the heart of Sydney CBD, our child care centre is easily accessible from both Museum and Town Hall Train Stations, bus stops on Castlereagh and Elizabeth Street as well as from the Light Rail. These are all within a five minute walk. We are also located close to China Town and Darling Harbour.
For convenience, the Sydney CBD child care centre provides an onsite pram bay as well as a 15 minute short-stay drop off and pickup area.
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.
Active Kids World Square is proud to be rated Exceeding the National Quality Standard
