Tarneit West Childcare

Tarneit West opening in 2021

Our brand new Child’s Play Tarneit West centre will open in June 2021. We are looking forward to expanding our services to better assist the needs of the growing Tarneit community. We are currently taking wait list applications and potential enrolments for June.

Located on Hermosa Drive just off Sayers Road, this new purpose-built centre will be a sister service to our existing service on Tarneit 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.

Our rooms are divided into ages and stages where children will benefit from age-appropriate challenges and new experiences.

Room 1 is for 0 – 12 months and offers 12 places. (Babies Room)

Room 2 is for 12 – 24 months and offers 12 places. (Children showing increased mobility)

Room 3 is for 2 – 3 years and offers 16 places. (Toddlers Room)

Room 4 is for 2-3 years with 22 places. (Toddlers Room)

Room 5 is for 3 – 4 years and offers 22 places. (Pre-kinder room)

Room 6 is for 3 – 5 years and offers 22 places. (Pre-kinder room/long daycare room)

Room 7 is for 4 – 5 years and offers 22 places. (Kindergarten program)

So we can offer the best learning environment for children, we over-staff with at least 5 educators working in our rooms. We employ a qualified kindergarten teacher to develop our kindergarten program. Our kinder programs ensure children are fully prepared for school.

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.
