Early Years Learning


Nestled in the heart of Woombye on the Sunshine Coast lies a truly a unique place for Children, Families, Educators and Community.   

Woombye Childcare and Kindergarten has been providing a high-quality long day education and care program since 1989. We are a small family owned centre.

Learning and growing at the WCK instils in children’s values such as respect, care, consideration and empathy.  Our aim is to enable children to become confident, creative lifelong learners.  Children who are kind, resilience, critical thinkers, and have an ability to adapt to changes in a fast-moving world.    

Our WCK Explorers participate in a range of community-oriented programs - Bush Kinda, Farm Kinda and “Walking Woombye”.   WCK offers our explorers the opportunity to enrol into Bush Kinda or Farm Kinda.  


We are open from 8am to 4pm, Monday to Thursday.

We are different …… Families and children love that we offer an Early Childhood Education and a Philosophy that is an alternative to traditional long day care to better prepare our children for 21st century living.

John Dewey, “Children are people, they grow into tomorrow only as they live today.”

Long day care                          Bush Kinda                       Farm Kindy                                 


We provide early childhood education and a philosophy that is an appealing alternative to traditional long day care and family day care. 


Our place has a focus on early learning putting the child at the heart of all we do with a focus on how children learn best, an inquiry approach to learning. “Head, hands and heart” learning.


A place with a strong nature play focus and connection to land and animals.  Where children can have real life experiences and fosters in each of us an ecological identity.


A place which values children as competent and capable, active protagonists of their growth and development.  Where qualified experienced teachers walk alongside children and families. 


A place that allows children the freedom and time to play and are central to make meaning of their world and make their ideas visible through different forms of creative expression


A place with a strong sense of community and collaborative partnerships.  A learning community which nurtures a culture of collaboration, deep thinking, and implementation of evolving approaches of research and practice challenging the more traditional approaches and values about early childhood education in a long day care setting


A place which prepares children for life in the 21st century and culture of life long learning
