Kids' Uni has provided quality child care to the Illawarra for over 45 years, currently operating four early education and care centres, with locations at the University of Wollongong, Innovation Campus and in Wollongong CBD.
Our team is proud to have achieved a 100% rating of Exceeding National Quality Standards under the National Quality Framework for all four Kids' Uni services. The national average is just 30% (Source: Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority).
This achievement gives our families confidence leaving their children in not only a safe environment but one which is carefully designed for them to thrive whilst experiencing a quality early education program.
Our Innovation Campus long day care service opened in January 2020 offering care for 3 to 6 year old children from a newly renovated, large indoor and outdoor facility. 2021 places are available.
Kids' Uni's transition to school program focuses on providing opportunities for children to follow their curiosity and to participate in varied learning experiences and activities including arts, crafts, physical movement, music and science. Numeracy and literacy are embedded into our everyday activities.
We value social and emotional skills as some of the most important aspects in preparing your child for life's journey. From very early on we focus on developing relationships with children and ensuring they feel secure and safe in their environment, providing them with the confidence to engage in the environment with ease and independence.
We endeavour to ensure that our physical environment conveys a strong message of welcome to our children, families and the community. Our indoor and outdoor environments are designed to promote and provide inclusive experiences for learning through play.
