The centre is located on a double block conveniently located near Kempsey Tafe and Kempsey Hospital and a few minute drive to the Kempsey CBD. We have a large outdoor learning area and expansive playground with plenty of shade which allows for outdoor exploration, social interaction, and skill development.

The centre is comprised of 3 large purpose built and well-equipped rooms catering for 0-2, 2-3 and 3-5 year age groups. The children spend time interacting and developing friendships with others in mixed age groups, family grouping and also in their own age group where they are provided with age appropriate activities and experiences that interest and challenge them.  The children’s learning is supported by Tafe and University trained educators with a wealth of knowledge and experience between them. Our qualified staff recognise the importance of developing strong partnerships with families through open communication in order to create a smooth transition between home and the long day care setting.
