Quality Care for Your Child

Commencing operation in 2019, our Atherstone Estate early learning centre is a brand-new development catering to children aged 6 months to 6 years. With 8 rooms and more than 887 square metres of space, there is plenty of room for your child to explore whilst under the watchful eye of our friendly and experienced educators.

We are ideally located at the corner of Atherstone Boulevard and Bridge Road, only a short distance from the Wilton Fields Park and Atherstone Adventure Park. We offer care for infants in our Nursery, as well as a comprehensive Kindergarten Program. We aim to create a homely environment where every child feels as though they belong as a valued member of the community.

Our educators are kind natured and compassionate. We encourage children to explore their individual strengths and interests, and we cater to any special requests you may have. We respect and honour the role of family throughout a child’s educational journey, and we keep you informed at every stage through the Storypark application. Our aim is to deliver the best possible care and quality education for every child, and we accomplish this through our blend of sensory and play-based learning.

    Bringing the Outdoors In

    Our indoor rooms are stimulating, safe and secure and have been purpose-designed for specific age groups. We are fortunate to have an expansive outdoor area which connects seamlessly with our indoor rooms, giving children the opportunity to enjoy fresh air and sunshine. We regularly run outdoor programmes ranging from environmental education through to sports activities and more. Within this safe and secure environment, children will develop their cognitive function and social skills whilst interacting with their peers and creating new friendships.

    There is an activity for every child, as we have environments ranging from sand pits through to cubby houses, swing sets, bike paths, rock climbing and even dry creek beds. Children are free to roam around at their leisure, discovering new concepts and interests whilst gaining an understanding of environmental sustainability and the importance of nature.

    Everything Provided, Nothing to Worry About

    As parents, we understand your life is busy. That’s why everything is included within your child’s fees. There are no hidden or extra charges to be paid, all daily necessities (nappies, food, drinks, linen etc) are provided.

    Your child will have the opportunity to participate in a range of extracurricular activities including subjects such as language and music, as well as physical education programmes. Striking a balance between theoretical and practical learning helps to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of children whilst also strengthening social skills and cognitive development.

    There’s no need to pack a meal from home, as we have a commercial kitchen located on premises. Staffed by a qualified cook, your child will be provided with delicious meals at morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. All meals are made fresh and meet Nutrition Australia guidelines, there is something for every child to enjoy.

    Meet our centre manager.

    I am delighted to be part of the Aspire Atherstone community as your Centre Manager, I have been involved in the Childcare Sector for many years where I have grown from an Assistant Educator. I have four children and 1 granddaughter, which keeps family at the forefront of everything I do. I am a person that prides myself on integrity and it is important to me to demonstrate my values every day. I value honesty, compassion, and loyalty.

    I believe that all children have a voice, I treat every child with dignity and truly listen to them. Success is when they flourish in an environment where they feel safe and have a true sense of belonging. Families can trust me to do my very best for them and I have an open-door policy encouraging families and educators to approach me with feedback or concerns. I look forward to getting to know you all.
