The Green Elephant Child Care Centre provides day care centre services in Randwick and the surrounding areas with a play-centred learning philosophy. Our aim is to create a safe, caring environment and foster learning through play. As we have discovered a holistic approach to learning, we offer a diverse curriculum to encourage and celebrate every child.
Our dedicated educators work closely with your child, encouraging the development of skills learning via an engaging curriculum and a variety of programmes that focus on a child’s needs, interests and growth. We offer eight ‘elephant’ programmes: the Fit Elephant, Safe Elephant, Groovy Elephant, Hi-Tech Elephant, Tongue-Tied Elephant, Creative Elephant, Healthy Elephant and the Big School Elephant. Each of these is specifically designed with your child's interests in mind, whether it be music, technology, movement or a little of each!
For example, the Fit Elephant offers a curriculum that is fun and physical while the Groovy Elephant harnesses the power of music and includes lessons involving musical instruments and dance. Kids grooving in the music room are taught by music therapists and get to practice their listening, communication and reasoning skills while gaining the confidence to move creatively. There’s also the hi-tech programme, which empowers kids to be safe and responsible technology users.
While some early learning centres serving residents in Randwick and the surrounding areas may offer day care, none offer the diverse curriculum that we do. For example, the Tongue-Tied Elephant teaches second languages through story-telling, language and games.
