All-Star Kids – Geelong Early Learning Centre & Kindergarten

We provide childcare and kindergarten in a setting that feels like a family day care. Our activities and experiences are engaging and allow children to explore, grow and learn in an environment that is safe and caring, providing you the peace of mind that your child is in in safe hands and having the best time, every day.

What Makes us Different?

We’re a small provider, based in Geelong, with a dedicated team that will ensure your child receives the best possible care and education. We know the pain and guilt parents’ feel when making that unavoidable decision to send their child to a childcare centre. We want you to know that with us, you don’t have to feel that guilt. Your child will be part of our family, because our kids are literally, our family – that’s our Director’s child in the photo above, who will be attending the centre.

Our Geelong Centre

Our centre is located in the heart of Geelong city on McKillop St, just off LaTrobe Terrace. We’re a short walk to the medical district and there is plenty of all day parking available in the area, making our location convenient for anyone working in Geelong.

Our Program & Activities

Our only aim is to provide EXCEPTIONAL experiences for your child and family. These are just some of the highlights included in your child’s early childhood education and care experience at our centre.

Rooms

Our Geelong service will care for up to 53 children per day, broken into three groups based on your child’s age – Nursery, Toddlers and Preschool/Kindergarten.

Nursery and Toddlers operate at a 1:4 educator to child ratio. Preschool and Kindergarten operates at a 1:11 ratio.

Each room offers child oriented and play based educational programs which are aligned to the Early Years Learning Framework, yet designed to meet the individual needs of the children. Our program offers a good mix of Active and Creative play, as well as STEM-based learning experiences. This approach ensures children are offered a well-rounded educational experience. 

We also have an incredible indoor/outdoor room and outdoor play space with playgrounds, water and sand play, a mini sporting court, veggie garden and performance area. There is plenty of opportunity for children to engage in explorative and imaginative play in our outdoor spaces.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of curriculum do you follow?
Play is essential to every child's learning and development. It enables children to make decisions, learn, take risks, and have fun. We plan experiences that are in line with The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) which is designed to engage child’s interests and allow them to experience each day in a new way, supporting their learning in the lead-up to primary school.
Is there a sleep or rest time?
We provide adequate opportunity for sleep and rest. We have two dedicated nursery rooms with a cot for each child. Our older children have mats and bedding/linen available when they require a sleep.
Is outdoor play supervised?
Our staff don't just supervise - they educate, explore and engage with your children. All indoor and outdoor play is supervised.
Do you have a sustainability program?
Each age group participates in a sustainability project that help children embed sustainable practices into everyday life. Children learn about recycling, conserving water, growing food and the importance of looking after and protecting our planet. We also have a herb garden and veggie patch, with items kids grow being used in some of our meals.
What meals do you offer?
We provide children with nutrient-rich, fresh, and seasonal whole foods created to please even the fussiest of eaters. Our menu changes weekly, with our cook catering to the unique dietary requirements of every child. We believe that by encouraging active participation in food preparation (such as growing & harvesting the fruit and vegetables, preparing, and helping cook the meal) - children learn to appreciate and understand the importance of healthy eating.
What equipment and resources do you have?
We are proud to offer the very best in our resources! Our centre is designed to be a home away from home that encourages every child’s exploration. Our early learning environments have been carefully designed to immerse your child into a world of exploration, curiosity, and learning. We have dedicated art and creative spaces, outdoor play equipment and playgrounds, a sporting field, race track, reading and quiet spaces and more.
