      Dinky Di Children’s Learning Centre is licensed to cater for up to 59 children per day with 4 home rooms allowing for small numbers per room with low child per staff ratios. The theme that runs throughout the centre’s environment and the grounds is specifically designed to inspire, whilst providing an ambient and peaceful atmosphere that is gender neutral. Each of the rooms and adjoining amenities are purpose built to cater for specific age groups, being 0-2 years (8 children), 2-3 years (16 children), 3-4 years (16 children) and 4-6 years (19 children).

      Rooms are equipped with digital cameras and computers which are used to document children’s individual learning and development and offer families snapshots of their child’s day through daily photograph slideshows.

      The centre itself, our abundant play and softfall areas and the ammenities that are provided for our children are second to none! We are sure that you will agree that along with the landscaping and natural environments, there is a massive difference in the feeling of the centre compared with other alternatives. Come on in and play with us!

      Our environments are set up to provide stimulating and engaging experiences and interactions, integrating a variety of skills and interests into each experience in order to promote the holistic development of each child at their own developmental level. Children are offered a variety of choices that provokes them to engage in activities while encouraging them to explore a wide range of materials. There are many opportunities for children to represent and explore ideas using a multitude of media. Thoughtfully organised learning centres in each room and outside allow children to revisit equipment daily, building upon skills and developing knowledge.

      Each learning centre is equipped and designed age appropriately to allow the children to self select materials to enhance their current interests. Provisions are made for moments of tranquillity and solitude, thought and reflection, collaboration and teamwork, exploration and movement.

      Outdoor play allows children to explore their surroundings. At Dinky Di our outdoor environment fosters each child’s individual abilities and current stage of development, whilst encouraging social skills and peer friendships. The range of outdoor equipment, incorporating permanent structures including gazebo, cubbyhouse and sandpit, freestanding obstacle courses and climbing structures, tricycles, and varying construction, creative and cognitive resources, supports children’s exploration and holistic development.
