BNC Play & Grow Programs

Our 3 year old Play and Grow Program operates at 112 High Street Berwick

3 year old Play & Grow

Our 3 Year Old Play & Grow sessions are run as a type of pre-kinder program rather than a government funded kindergarten.  This enables children who have turned 3 years old by 30th April of the year they commence to enjoy more than just the 5 hours per week that they would receive at their funded kindergartens.  And this is what makes our Play & Grow Sessions so popular -


- They are run by two fully qualified and very experienced educators with no more than 18 children a day which is a 9:1 ratio (9 children to 1 educator).

- They are 5 hours long and run four days a week.

- You can enroll your child in only 1 day or up to 4 days, it's your choice.

- Previous parents have told us our program is on a par, if not better than some of the best council run and private kindergartens around the area.

- Our Bush Adventures program is also very popular especially if your child loves being outdoors, getting muddy.

- You only pay for 5 hours (or 3 for Bush Adventures), not for 12 hours like in a long daycare, and if you qualify for the Child Care Subsidy, we can apply it to your fees.

- We are a family friendly, community run centre where we get to know our families and make your child's year with us very personable and welcoming.
