Located in a peaceful setting, and featuring an expansive natural outdoor play area, Windsor Neighbourhood centres provides children with a unique learning environment that encourages creativity and exploration.

Over the last 30 years our experienced educators have developed close relationships with local families. Each child is unique and learns differently, so our educators will spend time getting to know your child and family so we can create programs that reflect the way they will socialise, learn and grow.

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 off Lutwyche road for families who commute to the CBD and opposite St Mary of the Cross primary school. We supply all meals, wipes, sunscreen, nappies and cot linen. All you need to bring is a spare change of clothes. We offer nutritious, age-specific meals for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. All meals are prepared on site daily by our cook and approved by nutrition Australia. We are supportive of special dietary requirements and encourage families to discuss their child’s needs with us.

Rebecca Clark

Kindergarten Teacher

I’ve been an early ed teacher for:
Over two years with seven years experience as an educator in the industry.
My favourite thing about being an early ed teacher is:
I love how I am able to express myself creatively through setting up environments and experiences where children can explore and discover through play. I love planning with the children and seeing where their ideas and interests take us on our learning journey.
Something I like to tell all mums and dads is:
Kindergarten is a fun and exciting year, and play is our vehicle to meaningful learning. The children are growing and learning so quickly. Soon they will be in school, where the game changes again. So don’t rush this year of kindergarten. Listen, talk, play and read with your children, you won’t regret it!
My favourite way to relax is:
Although I can be partial to Netflix on the couch, I really love walking through rainforests and exploring new and pretty places.

The firemen

The dramatic play space or ‘home corner’ is a favourite for many of our children. In this space the children were taking on the role of emergency service workers, rescuing people. With the support of their educators they built a fire truck and fire extinguishers, in the craft corner and used these to put out the fire in a burning building. They also set up a hospital and created an ambulance to transport and care for the injured. To extend on these interests we organised a visit from our local fire brigade and the children got to see a real life fire truck and loved trying out some of the equipment.

Building a weather station

In our big backyard the children love exploring science through experiments. After doing a series of experiments relating to weather events including making our own rain clouds, volcanoes and rainbows the children wanted to learn more about weather. Together we built a weather station with the children taking turns to use the hammer and other tools with their educators assistance. Once our weather station was complete the children tracked the temperature, rain volumes and wind at child care closely so they could report it to mum and dad at the end of the day.

"Windsor Neighbourhood Child Care Centre has been a home away from home for our family since 2013. Both my girls have loved attending the centre, the staff are extremely caring, approachable and will try to accommodate your every need. The centre itself is a refurbished Queenslander that is filled with character & warmth, with a big back yard that the kids explore at every opportunity. We love our childcare centre and would recommend it to everybody."
