Located in one of Melbourne’s most picturesque parks and within a stone’s throw of the CBD, the Centre makes full use of its Park environment to educate children about natural habitats and care for the environment. Each morning at drop off parents sign a special column in their child’s sign in sheet giving permission for Educators to take the children into the Park. The children are taken on regular nature walks to experience the local wildlife, such as kookaburras, possums, lorikeets and insects and to observe the changing seasons reflected in nature. Park Rangers, on our doorstep, also provide excellent co-curricular experiences educating children further about their ark environment and its inhabitants. We also use the park land for our community gatherings and sporting events throughout the year. An important day on the Events Calendar early in the year is the social morning in the Park to welcome new families and to build connections within the community that benefit children, parents and the extended family. Further events throughout the year are held in the Park including, Fish and Chips evenings, picnics and sporting events, 3-5 year old groups play kickstart soccer outside weekly.
