Facilities

Smithfield Village Early Learning has developed a unique approach to childcare that understands the balance between education, care, play and wildhood.

From six weeks old to six years Smithfield Village Early Learning can offer a program suited to your child’s individual needs.

We go beyond standard toy rooms and outdoor play equipment, carefully designing complete experiences that engage and excite little ones whilst beginning to teach them important life skills.

We provide all meals, nappies, sunscreen and hats and each of our rooms are spacious and meet the new National Quality Standards.

Kindergarten Room

Our Kindergarten Room delivers the Queensland Government Kindergarten Program, which runs throughout the school year.

Based around the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines the program helps to develop every child's social, emotional, physical, intellectual and language abilities.

This program is delivered daily through a play-based learning environment.

Throughout the year, every child will be given the chance to learn how to:

  • Build up their confidence and self-identity
  • Make friends and cooperate with others
  • Explore ways to care for and respect the environment
  • Make decisions and choices independently
  • Strengthen their fine and gross motor skills
  • Express their thoughts and feelings through music, art, dance and play
  • Build positive approaches towards learning
  • Develop speech, reading, writing and numeracy skills

Outdoor Play Areas

It’s safe to say that our outdoor play areas are like no other!

The purpose build areas are designed with a combination of natural and manmade materials, allowing the children to experience all the elements.

We have four sand pits, two large bike tracks, a waterpark, construction area for obstacle courses, dry creek beds surrounded with fruit trees and natives to encourage wild life.

Our outdoor area has large grassed play areas so children can run and use their imagination to create their own games.

We have spacious verandas which allow children to engage in art activities or just enjoy some quiet time on the large outdoor cushions.

The children also get to experience the Construction Zone where the children are provided with dirt, hard hats, shovels, plumbing pipes where they explore the world of getting dirty and grubby.

Another important part of our outdoor area is our barnyard, which has been specially designed to cater for our chickens, goats and ducks.

We also have a large aviary, with all hand raised birds so the children can be involved in their care. The children also learn about the reptiles. At Smithfield we have Bluey the Blue Tongue Lizard, Spike the Bearded Dragon and Monte the Children's Python.

Children are encouraged to participate in the maintaining of animals which includes preparing food, collecting eggs, feeding and basic cleaning.

We are also big on sustainability here at Smithfield Village and produce a variety of veggies and herbs in our Garden World! These are harvested by the children and used in the fresh meals served each day!

Indoor Learning Areas

Our spacious indoor learning areas are very well equipped with state of the art resources for all development stages.

All rooms have been designed with neutral decor which provides a calming learning environment complimented by natural light.

All our fixtures are made from natural materials including tables, chairs, book shelves and cushions.

The classrooms for Senior Kindy and Kindergarten are equipped with the latest computer technology and interactive whiteboards, this enables ideal learning in these age groups.

All rooms cater for individual age groups for optimal growth and development creating a real sense of belonging.

Our flexible routine is designed to work with the children and their families to ensure that transition from home to setting is both smooth and enjoyable.
