Sunshine Kids Camperdown

In March of 2007 Camperdown Sunshine Kids was established as a logical extension to the Sunshine Kids group. This centre saw a warehouse transformed into a unique purpose built centre catering for 74 children five days a week.

Camperdown Sunshine Kids Is a purpose built Long Day Care Centre that currently caters for 20, 0‐2, 34, 2-4 and 20, 4-5 year old children and has a minimum of 12 qualified early childhood educators in attendance each day. We are open 50 weeks of the year, from 7:30am to 6:00pm, and are closed over the Christmas and New Year period and Public Holidays.

Camperdown Sunshine Kids consists of four play rooms and two large playgrounds. We pride ourselves on providing children with high quality resources and learning experiences in order to best provide for their interests, and promote their growth and development across all areas.

Each of the play rooms has a qualified room leader that oversees the provision of quality experiences to every child and assists in the implementation of a responsive and meaningful program.

Children are observed in groups and as individuals to best assess their learning interests, strengths and abilities. These observations are shared with families through an online journaling system with secure login for families and educators.
