Tarneit West Childcare

Tarneit West Now Open!

Our brand new Child’s Play Tarneit West centre is now open. We have expanded our services to better assist the growing Tarneit community. Located on Hermosa Drive just off Sayers Road, this single level facility has 7 dedicated rooms and 2 beautifully landscaped yards allowing the attendance of up to 128 children a day.

The shared yards flow together, inviting supervised play and interaction with children of various ages. The rooms are large, inviting and spacious with lots of natural light and have the most up to date resources and equipment.

We embody our philosophy of Every Child Matters to provide the best learning environment for our children. Our service goes above and beyond legal requirements by having at least five educators working in our rooms and providing children with the option of indoor and outdoor play. Our curriculums provide children with opportunities to explore their interests and our dedicated kinder program prepares children for school and is led by a fully qualified kindergarten teacher.

Children attending can look forward to a full menu including breakfast, morning tea, a two-course lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. Our in-house chef is trained to provide nutritious and delicious meals while staying aware of allergies and dietary requirements.

Our daily fee includes everything that your child requires for their day including nappies, sunscreen, meals and milk. We ask that you bring a bag or backpack for your child along with a drink bottle for water that they can drink from with minimal or no assistance. Your child will be allocated a locker to keep their belongings in. Your fee also includes incursions such as Little Sports Heroes and Happy Feet.
