Our Service

Town and Country Children’s Centre is privately owned and proudly managed by Advance Childcare Management.

Town & Country Children’s Centre is a unique early childhood environment situated amongst natural bushland for our children to be stimulated, challenged and invested in the natural environment. Our centre is well known in the local Highton community and has been in operation for more than 20 years. Our centre has a full team of warm, nurturing and engaging educators with a plethora of experiences and a variety of skills and knowledge to enhance each child’s participation in our educational programs.

We have 4 rooms for early education with the first step beginning in Gumnut; which is an intimate space providing each child with high quality care and support with a private sleep room for ambience and relaxation. Then we offer our Wattle room for children with a toddler routine which meets their needs in the daily program with their own outdoor space for learning. The next step is the Banksia room which hosts an indoor/outdoor program; offering the children a flexible and adaptable option to play. This meets the needs of children during their 2-3 year old journey. The final step is our Lilly Pilly Kindergarten Program which is a funded program for children and provides them with a structured play based curriculum to learn and thrive in preparation for their transitions to school. There is a regular array of Incursions and Excursions to enhance this year of learning for the Kinder children, based on their interests. We offer a unique Garden Program which is facilitated by one of our Experienced Early Childhood Teachers and the children attend structured classes which cover education linking to sustainability, the environment and the different cycles of gardening which the children can continue to contribute to and develop a deeper knowledge and understanding about.

We open from 6.30am – 6.30pm, during this time we provide meals with a 4 week rotational menu which we adapt through the seasons. Our menu meets the National Nutritional Guidelines for Children and has a strong influence on healthy options and a variety of meat, vegetables, grains, fresh fruit and dairy products.
