The opening of Kids’ Uni’s new Early Education and Long Day Care service at Innovation Campus is on track for late January 2020 and with the new service location providing increased convenience for some of our existing families, we are in a position to offer 2020 placements for children aged 3 to 6 years at Kids’ Uni Wollongong CBD and University of Wollongong centres.
Kids’ Uni has provided high quality child care to the Illawarra for over 45 years, currently operating three early education and care centres at the University of Wollongong and Wollongong City Centre catering for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years and a fourth early education and care centre at Innovation Campus offering care for 3 to 6 year old children.
Our team is proud to have achieved a 100% rating of Exceeding National Quality Standard under the National Quality Framework for all four Kids' Uni services. The national average is just 31%. (Source: Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority).
Our team believes in the importance of every child's first five years in developing their social, emotional and learning skills for life with a focus on learning through exploration, play and discovery.
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.
With our new Innovation Campus centre providing care or 3 – 6 year olds, our focus is 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.
