Read all about our Centre here.

We believe there are a number of core values and beliefs that underpin a high quality early childhood setting:

  • Our Early Childhood Services offer all children a safe and secure environment in which they can develop individually.
  • We aim to provide flexible educational and recreational programs, suited to the needs of the children in attendance.
  • We welcome family involvement and contribution.
  • Our staff are qualified and trained in early childhood education and care giving skills.
  • Our staff are supported to reflect on their practice and engage in professional development opportunities.

The Educators, Management and staff at Playford Children’s Centre embrace the following values;

  • Each child has the right to be an individual and to have their physical and emotional needs cared for at all times
  • Our care and child centred Early Learning Program is of highest possible standard and reflect the latest knowledge and practices.
  • The individuality of parents and families is respected, and our practice of care and education is appropriate to the child’s family situation.
  • We implement environmentally friendly practices to help build sustainability within the centre
  • Our practise respects and reflects the community’s aspirations and acre for young children.
  • Our centre is responsibly managed and the service provided is affordable within our community.
  • The individual needs of educators are respected and the centre provides a supportive environment for their professional need.
  • We acknowledge and respect the Kaurna people on whose land which we stand and aim to ensure our practices acknowledge the unique cultures of all people and ensure none is disadvantaged while attending our service.
  • We aim to reflect each educators and families culture within our daily program and develop ways to celebrate this.

Research has shown the first eight years of a child’s Life are the formative, basis years and that opportunities they experience during this time will have lasting and far-reaching effects.

Therefore we will;

  • allow each child to creatively achieve their potential
  • Create an environment where children are able to be enthusiastic, inquiring and challenged.
  • Children themselves provide the leads for the educators within the centre, involve themselves in individual and group projects and where possible to record what they have done in their own words using a variety of media, e.g. paint, clay, craft, drawing.
  • Children are encouraged to follow their own interests; to take risks where they become in essence the catalyst for their own curriculum.



  • 6:45am – 6:00pm, Monday to Friday.
  • Enrolments are flexible to family needs.
