Bentleigh Early Learning Pathways: Our Programs

Childcare for Busy Families

Juggling work, life, and little ones can feel like a whirlwind. At KingKids, we understand! That’s why we offer flexible childcare, Monday-Friday 7am-6:30pm, designed to support busy families and nurture development.

Your little one will thrive in our centre’s warm, playful environment, where they can engage in activities tailored to their needs. Our educators go beyond routine care, providing personalised support and guidance, encouraging exploration, and fostering growth while celebrating individuality.

Bentleigh 3-Year-Old Kindergarten

Our 3-year-old kindergarten program offers the perfect place for your toddler to discover knowledge through play-based experiences.
During the day, our qualified and passionate teachers guide your child through engaging activities and imaginative exploration. We focus on:

  • Social & Emotional Development: Building friendships, expressing emotions, and discovering valuable communication skills in a safe and supportive environment.
  • Early Literacy & Numeracy: Introducing letter recognition, basic counting, and a love for reading through interactive games and engaging activities.
  • Learning Through Play: Encouraging curiosity, exploration, and a love for discovery through age-appropriate play, music, and art.

As part of our Bentleigh Early Learning program, your children can continue their day with enriching activities and social interaction until 6:30pm.

Bentleigh 4-Year-Old Kindergarten

Get ready for big smiles and even bigger jumps in knowledge! Our 4-Year-Old Kinder program equips your child with the skills and confidence to thrive at primary school and beyond.
Our program, under the direction of our qualified teachers, attends to each child’s particular needs and assists them to:

  • Reach their full potential through personalised guidance.
  • Secure a strong foundation in social and emotional skills, and be ready for new friendships and challenges.
  • Exceed expectations with a hands-on, play-based approach that fosters creativity, critical thinking, and early literacy skills.

Art Program

We know every child is unique, and nurturing their talents is part of our holistic approach. To best support individuality, we offer an exciting art program as part of our curriculum, which allows us to foster your little one’s love for creative expression.

Led by our passionate Creativity Curator, small groups embark on artistic journeys within our fully equipped art studio. The sessions explore various materials, mediums, and methods, encouraging and supporting creativity and problem-solving skills. This early exposure to art isn’t just fun; it’s linked to boosting individual creativity, self-expression, and even academic achievement later in school. Artistic expression gives your little one a great sense of positive well-being.

Language Program

A child’s developing mind, which acts as a sponge for newfound knowledge, is incredible. Our mission is to support them and provide a diverse, empowered, and holistic experience during their early years. A component of this is fostering their literacy and language skills.

Our Language Program allows your little one to explore and master a new language through engaging activities, songs, and games. This early start fuels incredible advantages:

  • Sharpened problem-solving and critical-thinking skills
  • Enhanced listening skills, memory, and concentration
  • A foundation for gaining an understanding of lifelong language and cultural understanding.

Need Occasional Care? We've Got You Covered!

Juggling life can be tricky; sometimes, you need a helping hand. We understand! That’s why we offer casual daycare, perfect for busy schedules and occasional needs.

How We Learn

The design of our centre fuels your child’s natural curiosity! Each room delivers a mix of structured activities and open-ended play that encourages your child to explore, discover, and learn. We celebrate individuality, adapting our teaching approach to each child’s unique style and energy levels. This allows them to blossom at their own pace, building confidence and a love for the discovery of the world around them.

We believe in nurturing not only young minds but also our planet. That’s why sustainability is part of our core focus. We teach children about composting, recycling, and other eco-friendly practices through interactive activities and engaging lessons. In doing so, we empower them to be responsible stewards of their environment, developing a lifelong commitment to a greener future.

Where We Play

We’ve crafted natural, engaging, well-equipped indoor and outdoor spaces designed to spark your child’s imagination and nurture their development.

From cosy nooks for toddlers to wide-open areas for little explorers, each room is tailored to specific age groups and developmental stages. Whether climbing, building, creating, or simply making friends, your child will find endless opportunities to play, explore, and learn through hands-on experiences.

What we eat

All our healthy meals and snacks are cooked and prepared daily onsite in our fully equipped kitchen. We use a four-week rotating menu seasonally, which is always on display in our centre. All the meals we provide for your child include the following:

  • Breakfast
  • Morning tea
  • Lunch
  • Afternoon tea
  • A late snack.

We understand the essential need to nourish each little one in our care. We provide formula for babies up to 12 months at no cost to you. We currently use one trusted brand within the centre, ensuring consistency and quality.

Provide your preferred formula:

  • If you prefer a different brand, bring it to your child’s educators.
  • Breastfeeding babies is warmly welcomed! We follow our comprehensive breastfeeding policy to ensure a supportive and comfortable environment for mothers and babies.

More About Me

Hi, I'm Heba and I’m the Centre Director at KingKids Bentleigh! I have a daughter named Alyssa, she is my greatest achievement and inspiration. I have 7 sisters and 1 brother, so my household was never quiet and there was no privacy, but I wouldn't change my big family for the world! I can speak both English and Arabic, and I’d love to visit Italy one day. My favourite karaoke song is “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” - Whitney Houston and I love the movie "The Wizard of Oz". On my weekends, you’ll find me walking along the beach or out for a coffee, and in winter I love being home with my family watching movies.
