About

As the first Wesley Mission Queensland child care service established in 1964, Toowong Child Care Centre has a long, proud history of helping children reach their developmental milestones.

Toowong Child Care Centre is a long day care centre situated just moments away from Toowong Village and the train station.

Children of different age groups share two large rooms, which allows them to develop strong relationships with younger and older friends and helps with transitioning to school.

Specialised Deaf Program

Toowong Child Care Centre provides a comfortable and inclusive play and learning environment that accommodates the individual and unique communication needs of children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing.

We understand the significance of the early learning years for Deaf children and how important is is for them to acquire language and communication skills prior to entering school. We also provide staff and parents with training in Auslan and Deaf culture. The physical environment is modified to suit the needs of Deaf children with a sound field system installed, along with acoustically modified surroundings.

Learning Philosophy

At Toowong Child Care Centre we believe children are unique, competent and capable learners. We want every child to have a positive and memorable early learning experience.

Our service provides safe, responsive learning environments and a dedicated team of passionate, qualified educators who nurture and support each child’s learning and development in the following rich and meaningful ways:

  • Every child experiences a sense of belonging and we create safe, nurturing and responsive environments for children and educators to explore and learn about the world together
  • We listen to children’s ideas and provide opportunities for them to extend on their interests, strengths and needs through ‘play’
  • We implement the Early Years Learning Framework, while our programs are a balance between child-initiated and teacher-initiated learning experiences
  • We value our team of educators and provide ongoing professional development opportunities to keep their practice current and responsive to each child’s learning and development
  • We build on established relationships with families and value feedback to build best practice and to be responsive to children and families
  • We facilitate small and large group learning experiences throughout the day
  • We create policies and procedures to promote equality and the health, safety and wellbeing of children, families, educators and members of our community
  • We employ educators who are passionate about their work with children and their own professional development as reflective practitioners
  • Our educators adopt flexible roles to nurture, guide, co-construct and promote children’s creativity in rich and meaningful ways,
  • We acknowledge and respect the original owners of the land
  • We build on established relationships with families through mutual respect, trust and ongoing dialogue
