About ECTARC Keiraview Early Education and Care Service

ECTARC Keiraview is located in the Wollongong CBD nestled at the end a quiet cul-de-sac with a large natural outdoor play space.

Their central location and extended opening hours are convenient for many of the families who access the service from across the Illawarra as they work or study nearby. ECTARC Keiraview is a 45-place service for children from birth to school age.

The vision at Keiraview is to ensure that the community feels a sense of belonging, being and becoming and that they provide high quality education and care. This can be seen in their everyday practice as they respect the rights of the child and instil a sense of wonder in a play-based learning environment.

Keiraview values their families as the children’s first educators and encourage them, as well as other local community members to contribute to our program, helping to develop collaborative partnerships. They encourage families to become involved with all aspects of the service. Families and community members are invited to welcome BBQs, celebrations of important events in their lives and to join them for group times throughout the day.

At Keiraview their principles and practices are reflective of an inclusive curriculum encompassing all children, families, educators and the wider community. In accordance with the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) they value a holistic approach to each child’s individual learning journey. Their learning environments are purposely designed to support teaching and learning experiences that foster each child’s development. Each child’s learning journey and daily programs are easily accessible to families through their digitally based Childcares App.

Keiraview has two learning rooms: the Early Learning room for children birth to 3 years and the Preschool room for children 3 to school age. They have a large outdoor environment with both learning rooms having their own designated outdoor spaces. The children have opportunities to engage in indoor and outdoor play and are encouraged to move freely between both environments, based on their interests. The outdoor environment has a range of different learning spaces for the children to explore including a bike track, mud kitchen and water pump, sand pit and veranda. Large trees and pergolas provide shaded areas throughout our yard.
