At Imagine Childcare and Kindergarten Templestowe, our aim is to give your child the best start in life by providing exceptional early education and care.
Our experienced, long-term Educators are dedicated to your child's individual learning journey. We provide a stimulating play-based curriculum that reflects the Early Years Learning Framework. We recognise that children learn through investigative and exploratory play. With this in mind, we have designed open ended play spaces that give children the opportunity to explore and use imagination, as well as engage in decision making and problem solving.
We recognise the importance of excellent nutrition to a child's growth and development. We provide nutritious meals to all of our children as part of our daily fee.
Our centre offers weekly extracurricular activities at no additional cost to families. These exciting programs include:
- A music and movement program,
- Yoga lesson with a qualified yoga instructor,
- A weekly sports program,
- Weekly cooking classes, and
- Mandarin lessons.
We also recognise the importance of teaching children to nurture and have respect for their environment. We actively involve children in sustainable gardening, recycling, up cycling, using sustainable materials, water and energy conservation, and community projects.
We are open 52 weeks a year, from 7.15am - 6.30pm (public holidays excluded).
