We are a community early education and care service which means we are a self-managed, community based organisation. We are licenced to have 85 children per day across our four rooms: ​Vaughn, Hepburn, Redmond and Whinham. Who are we? We are a not-for-profit centre located in Prospect, South Australia. We offer up to 85 places per day across 4 rooms in a purpose built environment. The centre was originally opened in 1994 and underwent major renovation and extension between 2014-2016, updating the kitchen and bathroom areas, adding on a 4th learning space and updating resource rooms for our Educators. All flooring and cabinetry across the centre was updated and replaced. Gardens across all rooms had a level of work undertaken and the front community garden was also enhanced. We are incorporated under the Associations Act 1985, thus its activities are bound by a constitution. We are members of the Community Children’s Centres SA who offer support to all community centres. Responsibility for the day-to-day management, provision of services, and administration is delegated by the Committee to the Director. We have two Early Childhood Teachers in our "Kindy" room with the older children and Co-Lead Educators in each of the 3 younger rooms. Our centre has highly trained Educators with over 80% holding a Diploma of Early Childhood Education or higher.
