ABC Wigram
is a purpose-built childcare centre located near Hornby in the Wigram Skies subdivision. We offer quality early childhood education and child care. We have 3 classrooms – nursery, preschool and prep room. The separate classrooms allow us to provide more age-specific challenges and cater for more individualised learning and care programmes.

Our centre provides children with the opportunity to follow their own interests, be creative and to have fun. We pride ourselves on appreciating the diversity that each child brings into our centre. We ensure our programme supports the cultural beliefs of our families.

Infants and toddlers are supported with familiar caregivers who know the children and their routine well. These teachers work in partnership with parents to ensure their individual routines and requirements are supported in familiar and caring approach. Our preschool room programme recognises the importance of fostering the children’s natural ability to be inquisitive. Teachers fully support the children to actively explore and learn. Our prep room teachers, hold both primary and early childhood qualifications. We have found this to be a fantastic assist to support children in preparation for school.

We have a team of experienced and qualified teachers who are skilled to work along side your child to support and enhance their learning. Our teaching team is consistent and the staff turnover is low which means the teachers are familiar with the children and have a great rapport with children and families. There is a strong commitment to the ongoing development of the centre. Children are fortunate to experience a large outdoor environment. The space allows our teachers to ensure that children are regularly challenged physically and gain good control over their bodies. Our interchangeable outdoor equipment provides children with a variety and enables them to make decisions about their learning.

We have a range of sessions available that provides families with flexible options to work around individual commitments and lifestyles.

We would love to welcome you to ABC Wigram. Please feel free to call us for more information, or better still, come in and visit us.

Parent Feedback:

“Ryan has loved coming to ABC Wigram and enjoyed every day since he started when he was eight months old.”

“My four year old son loves the spacious playground and has made some wonderful friendships here at ABC Wigram.”

“My 1 year old daughter has loved starting in the nursery; the safe, comfortable environment gives her confidence to explore.  I was able to feel very comfortable with my decision to enrol her at ABC Wigram as my four year old son has had such positive experiences in both the Preschool and currently in the Prep Room.”

“Thank you so much to all of the wonderful teachers at ABC Wigram 1, that take the time to care for my daughter and follow her interests! They all know her so well and I know they put so much thought into the learning experiences they provide for her. She loves attending Preschool, and I just love seeing her so happy! She has some amazing friendships and loves to talk about her day and all of her special friends! Thank you for all that you do!”
