What we offer

At NCCC we see children as capable, active participants in their lives and support their learning through play. We respect children as individuals and recognise that they have a right to be involved in decisions and processes affecting them. We provide the children with opportunities to make choices about their own learning.

Each learning environment has a termly curriculum, which supports this sense of learning through care and play experiences. We focus on the child's holistic development, including motor, sensory, social, emotional, language and communication skills from birth to 5 years old. 

Our team strives to ensure that we are continually engaged in best practice; informed by pedagogical theory and current research. We are also guided by the contributions of both families and educators.

We show our respect for the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Peoples by valuing traditional knowledge and cultures of this land. Children are encouraged to develop a love for nature through outdoor play and learning about sustainability.  

NCCC has an onsite qualified cook who prepares healthy and delicious meals using seasonal ingredients and can accommodate most dietary requirements and allergies. View our sample menu below.
