Established in 2009, Active Kids Homebush is located in Homebush West and is only a short walk from Flemington train station. We are a large centre catering for 116 children per day aged 8 weeks to 6 years.
We have a team of qualified Early Childhood professionals with many years of experience within the profession. Our centre coordinator, Denise, has been part of the AKG family for over 10 years. Our educators have a sound understanding of the EYLF, which equals to meaningful play-based experiences for all children that will extend and challenge their learnings.
Our warm and friendly atmosphere welcomes you into our large open classrooms. We have a purposely designed Nursery room which caters for children aged 0 to 2 years and the larger part of our centre caters for 2 to 6 years. Our rooms are designed for open learning opportunities to ensure each child will learn, engage and grow in a stimulating environment that caters for their needs and optimal development.
Our age groups consist of:
0 to 2 years Nursery Room
2 to 2.5 years Toddler Room 1
2.5 to 3 years Toddler Room 2
3 to 4 years Preschool Room 1
4 to 6 years Preschool Room 2 & 3
Our curriculum based program encourages an effective and strong partnership with the community and families. This contributes to each child’s love of learning when providing a link between home and the centre.
Children’s documented learning and daily experiences are accessible to all families via Kindyhub, our online communication platform. Our educators are also available to speak with you and your family on a daily basis.
We offer a School Transition program that helps prepare final year pre-schoolers for that next step – primary school, whilst helping them become more confident and independent in a social learning environment.
Sustainability plays a major role in our curriculum and is embedded into our centre on a daily basis. We have a purposely built nature garden with plants, herbs and a worm farm to support children in becoming environmentally responsible and show respect for the environment.
Our chef works on-site 5 days per week and prepares fresh nutritious meals including breakfast, morning tea, hot lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. We have a 4 week rotating seasonal menu and cater to all children’s needs including any special dietary requirements.
We also offer a sliding scale fee structure based on the number of days your child attends.
