Your Family Is Our Family

Promote Identity & Wellbeing

Clever Kids is a small centre of 45 places per day, meaning your child will never be lost in a crowd or become a number in the system. Each and every child becomes a part of the Clever Kids family, surrounded by caring educators in our homely centre. Our shared playground allows for siblings to enjoy time together and provides numerous learning opportunities for children to develop their skills and confidence in socialising and decision making. We utilise our small community to promote identity and wellbeing in all our members, from the smallest of our learners to our school-ready Clever Kids. We work closely with families to follow routines and maintain consistency from home to childcare, ensuring a smooth transition peace of mind.

More About Us

 

SunSmart Service

 

We are a ‘SunSmart’ service and ensure that children are always protected from sunburn through the wearing of hats, applying sunscreen and having adequate shaded areas to play. 

Being sun-smart also means knowing about the importance of Vitamin D, and we take this seriously. We endeavour to have as much time in the sun through winter as possible, and our curriculum includes teaching about both the dangers and necessity of the sun for our bodies.
