Outdoor play at KOTA

Our outdoor play area has a number of well-established trees which provide shade and fruit in Spring and Summer and an abundance of colourful leaves in Autumn, which the children use in art projects.

The play area is equipped with swings, a trampoline, a sandpit, a rock wall, a cubbyhouse, fire truck, music wall and plenty of space for the children to run around on soft surfaces.

The Babies’ Room has its own separate outdoor play area, which can be integrated under supervision with the main shared play area for older or more inquisitive babies.

Our Centre pets

We are fortunate to have a number of well-loved animals at KOTA. Our resident fish, stick insects and reptiles are a great resource for the children to learn about and enjoy.

Every year we also temporarily host a chicken egg incubator, allowing the children to watch and learn about eggs hatching, and then to observe the hatched chicks at play.

Trips and celebrations

KOTA offers regular incursions from external providers for children of all ages, including weekly music and sports sessions. We also celebrate special cultural and social days in the calendar such as Chinese New Year, Easter, NAIDOC week and Christmas, among others.

KOTA also runs excursions for the Kinder kids, which have included visits to ScienceWorks, the Aquarium, the museum, a fire station, traffic school, local primary schools, the library and local parks.
