PE4K Childcare Forest Hill
PE4K Forest Hill operates 6:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday to Friday 52 weeks a year. It is closed on all gazetted Public Holidays.
Each day, the Centre provides education and care for up to 80 children from 6 weeks to 6 years.
PE4K Forest Hill is an architecturally designed centre located close to the Forest Hill Public School, the local shopping centre, and the Forest Hill RAAF Base.
Its spacious rooms allow children to play uninterrupted and to move freely between indoors and outdoors at their leisure.
Children under 2 years have their own indoor and outdoor play areas at one end of the Centre. The Centre is fortunate enough to have two attached sleep rooms large enough for each child to have their own cot. Pre-school aged children are located at the other end of the Centre where their playrooms are resourced with an extensive range of learning materials in preparation for school the following year.
PE4K Forest Hill is privileged to have many children from families attached to the nearby Forest Hill RAAF Base. This special connection contributes to the uniqueness of our Centre.
To facilitate the children’s sense of wellbeing and belonging, they are placed in small groups with educators and children familiar to them. These groups take into consideration the children’s ages and Developmental stages.
The groups are:
- Nursery - 6 weeks to 1 year
- Tiny Tots - 1 to 2 years
- Toddlers - 2 to 3 years
- Junior Preschool - 3 to 4 years
- Preschool - 4 to 5 years
In the early morning and late afternoon, and for special activities and events, children are given the opportunity to play in mixed-age groups and with their siblings.
