Childcare & Education

Our teaching teams use an emerging Curriculum to follow children’s interests and ideas. Children’s interests are encouraged and future learning opportunities are presented in a way that sparks children’s sense of curiosity and wonder.

Swimming Program

Our LEAD Childcare Swimming Program is tailored to our families, we deliver a water safety and swimming program to all our children. We focus on trauma free lessons, so that our children feel comfortable and happy when they are in the pool. All our swim teachers are fully qualified with Austswim or Swim Australia, they hold their Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety Qualifications.


"Learning and teaching should not stand on opposite banks and just watch the river flow by. Instead, they should embark together on a journey down the water. Though an active reciprocal exchange, teaching can strengthen learning how to learn."


The Kitchen Program

This program has been created to provide children with a positive food experience from the day they start care. As we strive to provide children with a home away from home experience, we help introduce the children to the importance of making healthier choices and creating nutritious meals whilst involving them in the planning, preparation and service of the daily menu.



LEAD Childcare is always looking for new and innovative ways to reduce their environmental footprint and develop a more sustainable future. Each Service contributes to our Sustainability program in their own unique way.

We are:

  • Reducing our general waste
  • Making the most of our Natural Environments and learning resources
  • Recycling and composting
  • Reducing water and electricity consumption

We believe that teaching children about sustainability allows them to develop an appreciation of the natural environment and its relationship to their world.

Learning Foundations & Age Grouping

We support children to gain confidence to explore their world and take safe risks. Children’s learning is recorded on our online “Learning community”, Storypark. Storypark allows families to be involved in their child’s learning journey which enhances and improves educational outcomes for children. Our educators and families become co-learners in the child’s development.

Children are grouped with others of similar ages, so they can play, learn and socialise in environments best suited to their own happiness and development. We provide opportunities for children to engage with peers of all ages as well as family grouping times throughout the day.
