St Cecilia’s Long Day Care + Kindergarten
Tucked away in the heart of Hamilton, St Cecilia’s small class sizes and extensive outdoor play areas provide children with a unique learning environment that encourages creativity and exploration and rewards curiosity.
Located in the heritage-listed St Cecilia’s school building, our families enjoy the best of both new facilities and old world charm. Our high ceilings, French doors and polished timber floors provide a comfortable, home-like space where children feel relaxed and at ease. Our spacious wrap-around verandas, with natural light and fresh air, are popular with children looking for a tranquil setting to read, paint, draw or just ‘be’. Our big backyard, with plenty of open space, creates a sense of freedom and adventure which naturally encourages your child to explore and create something new everyday.
With capacity for just 49 children, our staff can really get to know your child and what is important to them so they can adjust programs based on how they socialise and learn, and how we can best help them grow. At St Cecilia’s we care for children from six weeks and offer a Queensland Government approved kindergarten program for children in the year before prep.
We are conveniently located opposite Hamilton State School and have a good partnership with the school. During their kindergarten year children regularly visit the school exploring the environment and familiarising themselves to ease the transition. We are located within easy access to Kingsford Smith Drive for families who commute between the CBD and the inner northern suburbs. We supply all meals, wipes, sunscreen and cot linen. All you need to bring is nappies, a hat and a spare change of clothes. We offer nutritious, age-specific meals for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. We are supportive of special dietary requirements and encourage families to discuss their child’s needs with us.
