Dartmoor Children's Centre

Dartmoor Children’s Centre provides high quality Kindergarten and long day care programs to the children and their families within the Dartmoor and Surrounding communities.
Dartmoor Children’s Centre is located in a rural setting with large spacious outdoor learning environments.
Experienced teachers and educators deliver a program following the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework with the belief that children “Learning through Play”.
The educational program focuses on children’s interests, confidence, communication, social skills and encourages children to explore, research, make decisions, imagine, initiate ideas, persist, attempt, try again, solve problems and take risks.

Long Day Care provides child care for children aged between eight weeks to five years. The program is implemented by a university-qualified early childhood teacher and qualified educators, with the program age appropriate and provided in a safe and caring environment.

We aim to foster and develop positive relationships with families and encourage families to participate at the service.
Dartmoor Children’s Centre has well developed links with the local primary school and this assists children to successfully transition to school. The service is operated and owned by Glenelg Shire Council.
