High Quality Care & Education

Clever Kids Childcare & Kindergarten is a long day care facility that has been operating since 2000. An ownership change by a local member of the community in 2008 was motivated by a desire to offer high quality care in early childhood. The team at Clever Kids have worked tirelessly to build a centre that provides exceptional quality care and education within our local community. Our efforts are reflected by the National Early Childhood governing body of ACECQA (Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority).

Our team approach ensures that the individual and collective needs of the children are met in a harmonious and friendly environment. By maintaining a consistent and professional team of staff, we facilitate continuity and familiarity for the children and their families.

Our centre, located in leafy Ashburton has natural light filled rooms that facilitate a homely atmosphere and encourage 'identity' and 'wellbeing' amongst the most smallest of our learners within the community. Our shared playground allows for siblings to enjoy time together and provides numerous learning opportunities for 'children to grow'. Individual temperature control in each room ensures maximum comfort, regardless of the weather outside.

Our much loved centre pets, Noodle and Poodle (budgies) seem to be the centre of attention, providing the children with a sense of responsibility and ownership as they participate in their upkeep.

Our doors are open Monday to Friday, from 7.00am to 6.00pm, with all meals professionally catered for providing a balanced nutritious 2 course lunch daily with morning, afternoon teas and snacks provided. Our 6 weekly rotating menu provides healthy variety and will satisfy the fussiest of eaters.

As a small family owned and run enterprise, we consider ourselves an extension of your family and this is reflected in our homely environment. Clever Kids is where your family is our family.
