Our childcare centre is purpose built and prides itself in the beautiful, natural environment and well established gardens within our grounds. Our warm and nurturing centre offers the perfect environment for your child to flourish and give them a chance to explore and discover.

We cater for children over 2 years old and have quality education programmes tailored to your child’s needs.

Our experienced and passionate teachers are focused on fostering strong relationships with the children and also families. We have great teacher to child ratios which gives every child the attention and detail you would expect.

Community Kindy The Bay is perfectly situated for easy drop off and pick ups and located close to local schools which support excellent transition to school for children. Our centre offers the unique Be School Ready initiative which helps the transition to school and helps them develop the skills and knowledge needed to become a competent, confident life-long learner.

We look forward to meeting you and your child.

We are excited to offer our families access to Storypark e-portfolios. They are a great way to keep up to date with what your child is doing while at the centre. You can log in to the secure platform wherever you are in the world to see what’s been happening in their day, check out photos of them and comment on their activities.

Parent Feedback:

“The staff are awesome, the environment is safe, communication is always approachable, the day trips are well catered for, the centre provides a stress-free play to enjoy, meeting other parents and comparing learning strategies is also encouraged…. Overall I think they’re doing a wonderful job…… my grandchildren love it….”


“It’s hard because the centre provides more than we ask for.”


“Community Kindy The Bay is the best kept secret. The staff are incredible, it’s amazing to see their faces light up each time I drop my son off. I recommend the facility to all my local friends.”


“My son attended Community Kindy The Bay for over two years and is now off to School. My oldest daughter has been attending the Centre for over a year. And they LOVE it and so do we. We have tried a number of different centres in the area and found some very concerning problems with them. But at the Kindy the teachers are kind, caring our kids love them and very welcoming. We feel completely safe leaving our kids there.”
