Imagine Childcare & Kindergarten Doncaster is currently under construction and opening in 2022.
We offer quality childcare, early education, and school-readiness programs for children from 6 weeks to 6 years old. Our brand-new daycare centre will open from 6.30am to 6.30pm.
The centre’s convenient location at 799-801 Doncaster Road is just a short 3-minute drive from Doncaster Gardens Primary School. Doncaster Primary School is only a 4-minute drive away. Westfield Doncaster and Jackson Court Shopping Centre are also in close proximity to the centre.
Designed to Ensure Children Thrive
Our modern classrooms and educational resources are developmentally appropriate and designed to scaffold on children’s learning and complement our curriculum.
We incorporate interactive whiteboard technology into our classrooms. This technology enhances children’s learning experiences and familiarises them with equipment they will encounter in the formal school environment.
The centre’s nine classrooms open out to beautiful outdoor playscapes. These outdoor spaces are a haven for inspiring creativity, building confidence, developing gross motor skills, and exploring.
As your child explores their outdoor environments, they will enjoy landscaped gardens and natural play areas. We carefully design these areas to complement our gardening and sustainability programs, and instil a love for taking care of our natural world in your child.
Imagine Benefits You Will Love
We love supporting our families at Imagine Childcare. Our all-inclusive fee structure ensures our families receive the very best benefits and value for their childcare fees.
Nappies, linen, sunscreen, and hats are all provided. Our Kindergarten children also receive a special Kindergarten Pack on enrolment. This pack includes a backpack, drink bottle, hat, and polo shirt, and encourages familiarity with routines and equipment children will encounter as they transition to primary school.
We recognise the important part excellent nutrition plays in a child’s health, wellbeing, and development. All children enjoy nutritious meals prepared in our onsite kitchen by our qualified centre chef. Meals include breakfast, morning, tea, lunch, afternoon snack, and a little late snack too.
Our meals are tailored to individual dietary requirements, and we use only the freshest of local produce and ingredients.
As an Imagine parent, you will also enjoy free barista-made coffee every morning. We also support families through their partnership with Nurch Childcare Loyalty Rewards.
Nurch is an innovative loyalty rewards program, allowing parents to earn points on their out-of-pocket childcare fees. The points can then be redeemed for digital gift cards from favourite retailers like Myer, Woolworths, Bunnings, Coles, and Ampol – saving our parents money.
Our Quality Early Education Programs Inspire a Love for Learning
Our educational programs and learning environments inspire children as they discover, explore, create, problem solve, construct, improvise, think, and imagine. We believe that the foundations laid in the early childhood years are crucial to children’s being, belonging, and becoming.
Every child is a capable and confident learner. Our specially designed educational programs support the Early Years Learning Framework, leading theorists of early years education, and industry principles and practices; whilst acknowledging the importance of the way children learn best through play.
We implement the Abecedarian Approach Australia (3a) into our childcare centres. 3a is a set of of evidence-based teaching and learning strategies, that are proven to maximise children’s learning outcomes by enriching and enhancing Educator practice. The approach consists of four elements, each of which specifically promote intentional and meaningful adult-child interactions. These include Language Priority, Enriched Caregiving, Conversational Reading, and Learning Games 200.
Our comprehensive Kindergarten and Transition to School Programs are designed to prepare children with the skills needed for a successful transition to primary school.
Special extracurricular activities and educational incursions are also included as part of our daily fee. Through these additional programs we aim to enhance your child’s educational experience, extending on their learning and developing their interests.
Our educational programs are supported by our fully-qualified, passionate Educators. At Imagine Childcare, our Educators aim to instil a love for learning in every child that they will take with them through life.
