About Us

Mirambeena Children’s Centre is a community based not for profit children’s centre. We are managed by a group of parents who form our committee, taking on decisions in order to run our centre.

We are quite unique, with our 2 kindergarten rooms being affiliated with C&K, and yet still part of the overall child care setting. Mirambeena cares for children from 3 months of age, up until a child begins prep.

All of our staff have qualifications, many with a number of years experience, and we are fortunate to have our staff at Mirambeena with us for quite a number of years. It is a great place to work.

Some families return to Mirambeena as a parent, having attended here as children. We welcome families from all walks of life, some rural families, some with associations with the University, others from non English speaking backgrounds.

Because our centre offers quality care we are often at capacity, which does make it difficult for new families to obtain a spot here for their child. We encourage families to be placed on our waiting list as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

During the year Mirambeena holds a number of functions, some for the children, others to involve families in various occasions. All of these events contribute to the children’s experiences or facilitate interaction with the Mirambeena community. Families are always welcome to participate in the program and we particularly love having parents bring their skills to share with the children.

Mirambeena has adopted the C&K curriculum “Building Waterfalls” throughout the centre, where each child is valued for who they are and bring their individual culture to our setting. Our focus is on an emergent program in which children are able to choose the activities they wish, under the guidance of our experienced staff who extend the children from their interests and their abilities.

Mirambeena has a wonderful environment. We take pleasure in our sustainable setting, offering real grass to play on, boulders in our mud pit, chooks to provide fresh eggs and large airy play rooms with a huge number of resources for the children.

We are privileged to have such a beautiful centre here at Mirambeena, one at which we can offer your child a fun filled day. Thank you for visiting our website.
