Journey Early Learning Kawana is where your child’s journey begins. Recently transitioned from Farm Street Early Learning – Rockhampton, we continue to provide a nurturing environment filled with curiosity, wonder and joy. It’s a place where children aged from six weeks to six years of age can make a positive start to a life of learning, development, growth and opportunity.
Journey Kawana is a warm and homely early learning centre that inspires adventure and joy. The centre is designed around your little explorer and play-based learning. That means getting messy, digging in the dirt and playing in amongst the gardens. Our play spaces inspire children to work together with their friends to conquer milestones with confidence. We encourage our children to test their boundaries, while helping them to achieve different outcomes.
We feel it’s important to inspire our little adventurers and support the local community. That’s why we’ve developed special relationships with local organisations and venture out on regular bush kinder excursions into the local parklands, to immerse ourselves in nature-based play.
From peek-a-boo to prep, we’re here every step of the way.
School transition is a major focus, and we work hard to ensure this is a smooth process. By providing a safe and secure environment, our children develop confidence, resilience and a strong sense of self for the school journey ahead.
In order to ensure every child is prepared for school, our Kindergarten classrooms are intentionally designed by our Teachers to align with the Journey Standards and the Early Years Learning Framework and Curriculum. Our Government Approved Funded 3 and 4-Year-Old Kindergarten Classrooms are run by ACCEQA approved Early Childhood Teachers and Qualified Educators. Children enrolling in our 4-Year-Old Kinder Program are provided with ongoing support from teachers in preparation for school through our School Readiness Program.
Did you know that your child can attend Journey from 6 weeks to their first day of school?
We’ve designed a helpful Child Care Subsidy calculator so you can discover more about your government entitlements. Need help? We’re here to chat, just book an appointment below.
Hello! And welcome to Journey Early Learning Kawana. My name is Lydia, and I am the Centre Manager of Journey Kawana.
I believe every child is unique and can achieve anything with the right guidance, support and learning to help them succeed. I am privileged to be in a position to provide that guidance, support and learning. I have a commitment to continuity and open relationships with families.
The Journey Early
Interacting and connecting with the local community, ensures a bond is maintained between the children and the community, creating a sense of familiarity and belonging. It sets a rewarding scene for every child to rightfully respect their local environment.
Exploring nature-based play
Children love getting out and exploring in nature. It really is the greatest teacher. Nature based play is a core part of our curriculum. That’s because it teaches them vital life skills including confidence, independence, exploration and cooperation. Playing outside also promotes health and wellbeing and teaches them respect for the environment.
