Headstart Early Learning Centre Knoxfield

About Us

Welcome to Headstart Early Learning Centre Knoxfield.

HS_Knoxfield-1Our childcare centre boasts beautifully presented rooms as well as supplying all meals and nappies. We are open from 6:45am to 6:45pm and provide care and education for ages zero to six years.

Our rooms and outdoor playscapes focus on nature and are filled with natural elements for the children to explore.

We aim to provide the children with an educational experience that will give them a solid grounding for their primary school education and their further life. We also have a Victorian Government Supported Kindergarten Program that is supported by a Bachelor Qualified Teacher.

Our centre is a warm and welcoming place that maintains a family feel. We make a huge effort with the children and families that come through the door. We ensure that we know each child’s name so we can acknowledge them when they come in, as well as knowing all of the parent’s names so that all families feel comfortable coming into the centre each day.

We look forward to welcoming you into the Headstart Knoxfield Family.

What message would you like to tell parents considering your centre?

I believe that children learn through play. At our centre we have professional educators providing an educational program that is based on the children’s interests, strengths and needs. It is important that children are encouraged to participate in a play based learning environment so they can explore and discover the world around them at their own pace.

It is important to me and my team to create a warm, friendly and welcoming environment for the children and their families. We have an open door policy and I invite you to come and have a look at our beautiful centre and to meet all of our wonderful educators.
