Orange’s three premier early education centres cater for your child’s needs from zero to six years with an emphasis on children’s well-being and school-readiness.
All three centres adhere to the National Quality Framework, which provides a national approach to regulation, assessment and quality improvement for early childhood education and care services.
This means your pre-school child will be taught under a national curriculum by university qualified early childhood teachers, which helps children prepare for formal schooling and gives them a leg-up in the early school years.
The three centres are flexible and open for long-day care hours, from 8am to 6pm, and the centres stay open during the school holidays, with the exception of the Christmas and New Year period.
Enrolling your young child in one of these three centres provides a consistency of care from newborn right through to kindergarten.
Children thrive when there is consistency and a strong relationship between parents, carers and educators, which has been built and strengthened throughout the early years.
The centres’ educators become an extension of family.
Consistency of care removes the stress of moving your young child between services as they grow older.
Your child will have every developmental milestone nurtured and encouraged throughout the early childhood years, from learning to walk to supporting children’s learning as they transition to formal schooling.
The three education centres were established 30 or more years ago, have always had successful preschool programs, and have the support and backing of Orange City Council.
Many of the staff at each centre started with Council in those early years, this shows the strong and committed attitudes of the educators and the warm and supportive environment of the centres. For more information head to www.orange.nsw.gov.au/childrens-services.
