Our wonderful educators welcome you to Renown Park Children’s Centre for Early Childhood Development and Parenting.
At Renown Park Children’s Centre, we place relationships at the heart of everything we do. We work in partnership with families in our community to collaborate and support their needs through educational programs and we recognise that they are children’s first and most important teachers. With a diverse community of children and families from many walks of life and cultural backgrounds we strive to create an inclusive place where there is a strong sense of belonging for each and every person who walks through our door. We believe that children who feel a strong sense of belonging, optimism, and resilience are able to collaborate with others in developing life-long skills that lay a foundation for success and the ability to handle the challenges and joys of life. We believe children are competent learners, encouraging them to explore new experiences and be confident risk takers.
It is through play that learning is most meaningful and engaging, and through which children experience success as a learner. Our aim is to make each child feel important and good about themselves through developing their confidence, persistence, and sparking their enthusiasm, imagination, and curiosity. We support each child’s individual discovery in learning by encouraging them to enquire, problem solve, hypothesise, and investigate into what excites them, extending their interests and challenging them into new learning. Educators use the Early Years Learning Framework to support the design of the curriculum and guide our documentation of children’s learning, developing powerful learners. Our Children’s Centre strives to be a community hub supporting family health, well-being and educational outcomes.
Our purpose built, contemporary space is flooded with natural light. We have an open plan play space which can be divided into three separate areas, to create flexible and quieter spaces including a beautiful bay window.
Our landscaped nature play outdoor space is engaging; offering opportunities for imaginative play, as well as individual and cooperative play through the use of the mud kitchen, sand pit, creek and loose parts. We are a sustainable centre that uses water tanks, have solar panels, chickens, a veggie patch and fruit trees. We have a wood pizza oven which can be used for social gatherings with our families to develop a strong sense of community.
