Hello and welcome to Arcadia Vale Care & Early Education Centre. We are a purpose built centre designed to provide the highest possible standard of care and education for children aged 2-6 years.  The centre provides care for 29 children a day.  Our aim is to provide children with every possible opportunity to help them reach their full potential. In order to achieve this we will do the following:


  • Create a fun and nurturing environment that encourages learning
  •   Provide a place where everyone feels safe, secure and happy
  •   Work closely with families, valuing their ideas and opinions
  •   Recognise that each child is different and cater for their individual needs
  •   Work in conjunction with other community groups eg local schools
  •   Have qualified, caring and experienced staff.

Build a trusting and secure place for both children and their families.

Our centre has two homerooms: Lake and Ocean. The children will be divided into these rooms according to their age and developmental needs. While the children will be divided into two separate groups, they will be given the opportunity to play as a larger group throughout the day.
