KingKids Childcare Centres


At our KingKids childcare centres we offer long day care, or childcare, and kindergarten for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years. Our childcare programs are designed to educate and entertain children throughout their early years and encourage development.

Our team of trained and experienced childcare educators are dedicated to caring for and supporting your child and helping them thrive and develop personally and socially. We provide plenty of activities, education and care for your child, keeping them entertained and stimulated. It’s not just child care, it’s fun care!

We’re open Monday to Friday from 6.30am to 6.30pm 52 weeks a year at our KingKids Bewrick, Hallam, Narre Warren and Rowville services and 7.00am to 6.30pm at our KingKids Bentleigh service, 52 weeks a year, closing only on Public Holidays.

Our curriculum, activities, childcare rooms, and outdoor spaces are developed around the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework, or VEYLDF. The VEYLDF is built on the recognition that children start learning from birth and that providing children with the right environment, tools, guidance, and methods of learning can actually help to increase their ability to learn throughout their lives.

Our play-based 3-year-old kinder and 4-year-old kinder programs have been developed by our qualified kinder teachers. While our kinder program runs from 9am to 2pm, as your child is in our childcare program kinder hours are incorporated into their day, so even after 2pm a program of learning and fun continues.

In 3-year-old kindergarten children are supported as they develop their social and emotional skills and are encouraged to engaged in both group and independent play. Our learning program sees some pre-reading and number concepts introduced.

4-year-old kindergarten helps set your child up for making great steps in their learning and development, along with helping set them up for a successful transition to prep. Our 4-year-old kindergarten curriculum teaches social and emotional skills, creative thinking, and early literacy, reading and language skills, with a hands-on, play-based learning approach.

Our kindergarten programs are government funded and include Bush Kinder walks along with a number of incursions and excursions. We are also excited to have our Kinder Bus as an addition to our kindergarten program. Thanks to the bus, we are able to extend the range on our excursion program. This has seenour children attend book readings at libraries, going to cultural art centres and visiting other local community landmarks.

We feel that sustainability is important to incorporate into our childcare programs. Sustainability isn’t just about looking after our planet and picking up our rubbish, it’s about so much more. It’s about going the extra mile to not only to ensure that there is a future for us all now, but a future for generations to come. It is with this belief that sustainability is embedded in our philosophy. Through their time at KingKids, children develop a sense of awareness to the limit of our natural resources and what we can do to ensure that we reduce waste and promote clever uses, or re-uses to items. Not only is this developing a sustainable understanding, but it can also promote problem solving and critical thinking skills.

At KingKids Early Learning Centres we have a sustainability leader guiding and inspiring new innovative ideas, researching and inspiring our families and team to embed more sustainable practices within our day to day lives.

Some of our embedded sustainable practices that we use each day:

  • Earth Hour (turning all unused electronics and lights off throughout rest time)
  • ‘Garden to Plate’ (growing fresh fruit and vegetables in our gardens and sharing these with our children and families to use in their cooking)
  • Think, water wise (reusing unwanted water from drink bottles and activities for our vegetable gardens and shrubs)
  • Using environmentally friendly cleaning supplies
  • Composting our fruit and vegetable scraps
  • Re-use paper and magazines in craft
  • Use fallen natural materials for activities and craft

Recycling and disposing of items and waste correctly

Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF)

Our programs at KingKids are built around the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework, or VEYLDF. The VEYLDF is part of the Council of Australian Government’s reform agenda for Early Childhood Education and was introduced in 2009. It’s built on the recognition that children start learning from birth and that providing children with the right environment, tools, guidance, and methods of learning can actually help to increase their ability to learn throughout their lives.

The VEYLDF‘s aim is laying a firm foundation for future learning through learning and development that is planned around each individual child’s specific needs and interests. The framework is designed to accomplish this goal while at the same time providing a universal set of standards to help improve the quality and consistency in the early years sector.

At KingKids we understand that the foundation of our planning is based around the VEYLDF. We recognise the importance of having a profound understanding of the VEYLDF as this knowledge enables us to grasp what is expected to achieve an exceeding rating during an assessment and rating.  KingKids Management and Educators have a sound understanding of the VEYLDF as this is necessary to be able to guide and support your team.

We understand that providing our team with ongoing learning and professional development opportunities is paramount to delivering high quality education and care. With this in mind, we have partnered with a Registered Training Organisation ‘Making Education‘ to deliver and provide training and development for all of our team members.



The VEYLDF is Based on the Concept of Being, Belonging and Becoming:


Simply means letting each child be who they are and letting children be children giving them the sense that they are free to explore the world around them.


Children learn best when they feel as though they belong to their families, to their communities and to the world at large. By helping a child increase their sense of belonging you can help provide a safe and comfortable environment in which a child can learn.


Simply means that a child continues to grow by experiencing new things. It is simply the acceptance that as a child learns and grows, they are constantly changing.

The 5 learning outcomes of the VEYLDF are:

  • Outcome 1 – Children have a strong sense of Identity.
  • Outcome 2 – Children are connected with and contribute to their world.
  • Outcome 3 – Children have a strong sense of wellbeing.
  • Outcome 4 – Children are confident and involved learners.
  • Outcome 5 – Children are effective communicators.

The National Quality Standards (NQS)

We are regulated by the Department of Education and Training (DET) who ensure that our service is registered, that our Educators are appropriately qualified, and that we operate in accordance with the Act and Regulations.
