PE4K Childcare Lake Albert
PE4K Childcare Lake Albert 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 73 children from 6 weeks to 6 years.
PE4K Lake Albert is an architecturally designed centre conveniently attached to the Lake Albert shopping centre. The Centre’s location has resulted in children and their educators being closely connected to the surrounding community.
Its rooms are spacious, light and airy. The indoor playroom for children under 2 years is at one end of the Centre. The Centre is fortunate enough to have an attached sleep room 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
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.
