About Kooinda Workbase Child Care Centre

At our centre childhood is celebrated. When they play and explore, children's imagination and curiosity is sparked – they enjoy learning, and are inspired to continue learning more.

The name ‘Kooinda’ means ‘a happy place’ in the local indigenous Awabakal language. Our focus is on ensuring we provide a happy, safe and accepting environment, which reflects and enriches the lives and identities of the children and families that attend our centre.

We believe that care and education are intertwined during early childhood and emphasise the importance of play-based learning within our program. We take a holistic approach to teaching and learning, recognising the physical, personal, social, cognitive, emotional and spiritual aspects of learning experiences and their connectedness. Our educators value and build on children’s interests, strengths, skills and knowledge to ensure their motivation and engagement in learning.
