What families are saying about Gaven Early Learning Centre

My 2 boys have been at Gaven Early Learning Centre for coming up nearly 2 years and WOW what an experience we have had and incredible improvement in both my boys Learning and development but especially within my older boy. My children are 4 and 5 but my 5 year old literally could not sit still long enough to draw ANYTHING let alone know how to even hold a pen or pencil before we moved here. Now he can write his name, has an eager artistic streak which all of the educators are exploring with him and encouraging which is so beautiful to see. They are helping him learn however that looks to help his education and confidence. To the extreme of my son being very creative making a McDonald's at daycare so Karen (the director) went to a local McDonald's and explained how not only my child now but his whole class now have shown so much interest and would love some empty cups and happy meal boxes for imaginative play in their pretend maccas which they donated. They then got to go back to the same McDonald's to give the owner drawings to say thank you and got a cheeky happy meal compliments of gaven elc. Not too mention all the occasions they celebrate and cater for is incredible and always so special then to all the lovely teachers and centre with Easter and Christmas presents. This daycare is like a big beautiful family and we have loved being apart of this centre and family. I couldn't recommend Gaven Elc any higher then I have so if you're looking or thinking of sending your little one here I'd say do it It will be the best decision you make 🥰

About Vacation Care

Vacation Care in Australia is a popular child care service designed to support families during school holidays by offering a safe and engaging environment for children. This program provides a range of activities that cater to various interests, including arts and crafts, sports, excursions, and educational workshops. What is Vacation Care? It’s a structured program that operates during school breaks, ensuring children are well-supervised and entertained. Who can attend Vacation Care? Generally, it’s available to primary school-aged children, though specific age requirements may vary by provider. How much does Vacation Care cost? Fees can vary widely depending on the location and the range of activities offered, but government subsidies through the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) can help reduce costs for eligible families. What are the benefits of Vacation Care? It not only provides children with opportunities for social interaction and skill development but also offers parents peace of mind knowing their children are in a secure and stimulating environment while they manage work or other commitments.

Gaven Early Learning Centre is dedicated to providing the highest quality education and care for children aged between 6 weeks to 5 years. Our team of qualified and passionate educators understand the unique needs of each child, and we strive to create individualised learning experiences that cater to their interests and abilities.

Our primary goal is to support your child’s growth and development, while also ensuring their safety, well-being and happiness is met. With a family-oriented approach, we create a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere where every child feels a sense of belonging. We are proudly family-owned and operated, and our commitment to building strong connections with our community sets us apart.
