Based in Coburg, our purpose-built centre consists of three rooms catering to children aged from 6 months to 5 years. A large, shaded play yard additionally promotes lots of opportunities to foster children’s natural curiosity.

KOTA is an independent, not-for-profit centre that prides itself on being family-orientated. Run by a Committee of Management made up of the parents and guardians of the centre’s children, parental participation is always welcome.

Educators

We are very fortunate to have many highly qualified, experienced and committed educators and staff members who have been with us for a long time, and pride ourselves on our low staff turnover, as we believe that continuity of educators is beneficial in building trusting relationships with the children in our care.

Meals and Nutrition

Fresh, nutritious food is prepared daily on the premises by our qualified cooks, with morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack provided. Our four-weekly rotating menus reflect the children’s dietary needs and cultural backgrounds, and we are able to cater for individual dietary requirements or food allergies on request.

Learning through play

We believe children grow and learn through play, so we offer a range of developmentally appropriate play experiences both indoor and outdoors to aid children’s learning and development. These might include art, language, music, science and mathematics, sensory and physical opportunities.

Rest and relaxation

It is important that each child has enough opportunity for sleep and relaxation throughout the day, according to their age and individual needs, and we ensure that all children are encouraged to take rests when appropriate, with both cots and sleeping mats available.

Health and Hygiene

We are committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment, and aim to provide and role model effective hygiene practices to the children. Every precaution is taken to protect children from harm and hazards. Our educators hold current First Aid and CPR certificates.

Our Vision

We engage, support and inspire our educators to work in collaboration with families ensuring each child reaches their full potential. Our aim is that our children are happy, confident learners, encouraged to explore, be creative, use their imagination and have fun!
