Our Program

There are many reasons why we believe children flourish at our centre. From the personalised attention provided to each child, to the warm and stimulating environment, building strong foundations for future learning.


Our program format allows the children greater input into their learning environment, which is interests-driven and encourages meaningful learning. The program:

  • builds foundations for a lifetime of learning; and

  • is child-initiated and shaped by the children’s interests.

Confidence within individual children is more naturally developed as they become the initiators, controllers and negotiators. This confidence leads to greater decision-making, development of skills, peer relationships and concentration, and sets the foundation for future learning. Staff, children and their families become involved in establishing individual learning journals. These journals become a collective documentation of written learning stories, photos and children’s work during their time at the centre.

Our Philosophy


At North Ringwood Community Children’s Centre we aim to provide children and families with a community-focused early learning environment that is warm, welcoming and homely, and one that embraces the natural environment around which the centre is located.

We offer a high quality, intentional play-based program where children are respected as individuals and independent thinkers, are actively involved in their program to encourage meaningful learning and development, and are provided an abundance of indoor and outdoor learning experiences from which dreams can grow and curiosity can be cultivated.

The centre is staffed by highly qualified, passionate and committed educators who work in partnership with community members to support the best possible early learning opportunities for our children.

We are proud to acknowledge the Wurundjeri people as the traditional owners of our local lands and waters and the community in which we live and keenly advocate for the rights of our children both now and in the future.
