Bell Street Early Learning & Kinder

Child Care Centre Preston

The educators at Bell Street Early Learning and Kinder offer childcare in Preston that strives to achieve mutually caring and trusting relationships with families. This offers a strong foundation for children to actively engage in our stimulating educational curriculum. Our child-centred program aims to support your child’s sense of curiousity and wonder and make learning exciting! Our children engage actively with their community and the environment on daily excursions to build thoughtful and confident citizens. We look forward to seeing you at Bell Street Early Learning and Kinder.

At our centre, you will find:

  • Our Bachelor qualified Kinder Teacher is keen to not only get your child school-ready, but to work in partnership you to build a resilient and caring child who is ready to embrace the world.
  • Our onsite cook is making fresh and nutritious meals to fuel your child’s body and mind. We provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late supper to support your child’s learning and play all day.
  • Our environments are purposefully designed to meet every child at their unique point of development. We understand not every child or family is the same, and our learning spaces reflect that. Like you, we wonder who they will be if we offer them the best start in life…
  • Our holistic curriculum is designed to achieve not only school readiness, but to nurture thoughtful, understanding and tolerant young citizens in a way that makes learning fun. Who knows what amazing ideas lie in these young minds?
  • When we say open-door policy, we mean it. We are here to support families in every way we can. Whenever you need to talk, we are here to listen.

Our fully-funded, all day Kindergarten program is led by a Bachelor trained Early Childhood Teacher. We offer a stimulating curriculum with the aim of building confident and active learners. Using a holistic approach to education, we combine school readiness programs with learning experiences to foster the social and emotional development of young children. Our integrated indoor/outdoor curriculum is child-directed and seeks to engage children in meaningful learning experiences that get them excited about learning and confident to commence their formal education journey.

Meet our Director: Gwen Hansen

Hi, I’m Gwen. I have worked in the Early Childhood Industry for numerous years and have never lost the passion, the joy, and the pleasure of seeing children grow and develop into competent and capable young people.

As an Educator I believe that we play an incredibly important role in developing children’s passion for the love of learning, discovery, confidence, and being resilient that gives them lifelong skills to navigate this world in which we live. Outside of Bell Street I am the carer for my aged mother and I love to travel and explore our beautiful country and when possible, the amazing sights of other countries around the world.

My goal for Bell Street is to provide every child with respectful opportunities to engage in play which is interesting, aesthetically pleasing, inclusive and child directed. I wish for every family to feel welcomed, included and enjoy their child’s journey within our centre.
