COMMUNITY KIDS HUNTINGDALE
EARLY EDUCATION CENTRE
Huntingdale, Western Australia
ABOUT OUR EARLY LEARNING SERVICE
Community Kids Huntingdale is a delightfully homely centre on the corner of Huntingdale Rd and Flowerwood Way and caters to children and families from around the area, including Thornlie, Gosnells, Maddington and even as far as Byford.
We pride ourselves on our relationships with our families and our children and prioritise these first and foremost, as we are all partners in every child’s learning journey.
Our Educators at the Service are diverse in many areas, including their interests and their strengths as well as their backgrounds. We have a strong team environment at the Service and bring varied and extensive knowledge to the area of Early Childhood Education, with three university trained teachers on site as well as Diploma and Certificate qualified Educators.
At Community Kids Huntingdale, we provide the children with healthy, nutritionally balanced meals throughout the day and accommodate any families with special medical or cultural requirements.
Our indoor and outdoor spaces are always changing based on the interests of the children and our changing programs. Our program is based on the Early Years Learning Framework, which is a national curriculum catering for children from birth to five years. We also link our learning and our experiences to the WA Kindergarten Curriculum, closely aligning our learning with preparing our Kindy children for school.
