Kids Club Early Learning Centres are well recognised in Sydney and Canberra for their Education for Life Program and for having some of the most creative play spaces in Australia. We’re proud to finally bring our Six-Star Early Education experience to Melbourne.
We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality education and care to your child. We do this through a holistic approach to early education. Our play-based curriculum has been created to extend on the principles and practices of the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), Australia’s national curriculum for early childhood education.
With amazing outdoor/indoor playscapes and purposed designed learning spaces fitted with custom age-related features, Kids Club Murrumbeena is setting new standards for the area.
Everything is included in our fees from nappies, formula, 5 gourmet meals served daily by our in-house Chefs to our impressive program and extracurricular activities (yoga, music, sports lessons…).
Kids Club Kindergarten Program is an approved program by the Victorian State Government as an educational platform for children intending to start school the following year (child must be 4 by the 30th of April). As an approved Kinder provider, parents can receive up to a $2,000 credit against preschool fees through this Victorian Government initiative.
Designed and run by our experienced early childhood teachers, they work on a transition-based program designed to prepare children for school through effective learning principles. With foundations in building positive relationships, identifying and working with emotions, creating personal identity and promoting wellbeing, our curriculum is based on the Kids Club core pillars, developed from the National Quality Framework as set by ACECQA.
Integrated into the long day care setting, the rooms are designed to resemble a kindergarten environment. During school terms, children spend the full day with the same educator, a few days a week, based on a 15 hour per week allocation. If care is required outside of these periods, your child remains in their allocated age room, so that they continue to receive the full benefits of Kids Club’s programs.
Kids Club centres provide absolutely everything your child needs to be comfortable all day, making the transition from home to daycare much easier. Check the video below to see everything included in your fees.
We transition children in our rooms based on their developmental needs.
Our daily fees are based on your child’s age group, they are all-inclusive: you will not have to pay any extra costs.
The daily fees before Child Care Subsidy are as follows:

Hi, I’m Ash and I’m the Centre Director here at Kids Club Murrumbeena. I’ve worked in the Early Childhood industry for the past 8 years and hold my Bachelor of Education. My passion is to provide high quality care and education in a secure, relaxed, and fun environment. I believe in promoting a home away from home atmosphere that incorporates realistic, natural, and culturally rich environments, for all children, families, and educators.
As an Early Childhood Teacher, I believe educating children in their early years to be the most rewarding profession, as these years play an integral part of their overall learning and development.
Within my role, I aim to ensure all children have a warm, safe, secure, and nurturing environment, where they can flourish in their development and strive to achieve their fullest potential. I find it’s vital to encourage and facilitate trusting, respectful, and collaborative relationships with our families and community. I also understand the importance of modelling, inspiring and guiding my amazing team to ensure they are supported, motivated and feel their sense of belonging at our service.
I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our Kids Club Murrumbeena community!
At Kids Club we have certain room routines that educators follow. The routine will vary, depending on current events and activities. Having a routine in each of the rooms allows for smoother transitions into new activities, meals and rest time. The routine is available to families so you are aware of what your child is doing at certain times.
The day starts with family grouping sessions where breakfast is served. Here is when you can say goodbye to your little one. After breakfast, your child has time to play and learn at their own pace.
At this time of the morning, other children are still arriving, so the educators offer children different activities to engage in. The activities are purposefully selected to encourage our learning through play framework.
We then begin to transition into morning tea. After washing their hands your child will sit down where they choose and be served morning tea from the menu. If your child has dietary requirements they will be served an alternate meal.
Depending on the weather, your child will be offered to play indoors/outdoors for free playtime. This is where educators can make observations of what your child likes to do. During this time we also hold group activities with the children.
From 12 pm we begin to transition to lunchtime. Once your child’s hands are washed they will choose a seat where a hot lunch will be served to them. If your child has dietary requirements they will be served an alternate meal.
Sleep or rest time after lunch your child will have a rest in a peaceful tranquil room with educators patting if requested. If your child does not require sleep, they will take part in quiet activities such as reading.
After your child wakes up, afternoon tea will be served. If your child has dietary requirements they will be served an alternate meal. We encourage our toddlers and preschoolers to serve themselves their own afternoon tea.
Depending on the weather, your child will be offered to play indoors/outdoors for free playtime. This is where educators can make observations of what your child likes to do and prepare for future planned experiences based on interests.
Planned afternoon learning experiences. During this time we will engage your child in activities that are slightly more structured and educator-led. For example, yoga classes, painting lessons, group play and group learning moments.
"Our daughter loves the staff and cant wait to get there in the mornings. The facilities are great and the communication of both general and specific info is clear and prompt."Rob, Kids Club Murrumbeena Parent
"Fabulous centre! The staff are very caring, knowledgeable and genuinely love the kids. The curriculum is incredible - especially for the older kids rooms, my almost 3 year old is doing research projects and presenting them to the class! This is setting them up so well for the future. Very impressed with the communication and the updates (including photos and videos) they provide on the kids throughout the day. Food is amazing as well! And the facilities are 5 star. I have a little boy almost 3 and another almost 1 and have been just so impressed with Kids Club Murrumbeena. Could not recommend more highly."Lisa, Kids Club Murrumbeena Parent
"This place is amazing. Nice facilities to play, sleep, eat and activities! Also love their curriculum. My 15 months old son is learning so many things and having quality time with lovely staff and friends. He is so happy. I would definitely recommend anyone who is looking for a wonderful place to send your beloved children."Hee, Kids Club Murrumbeena Parent

The Australian Government provides families with financial assistance to help cover the costs of approved child care – the Child Care Subsidy.
Since 2 July 2018, Australia has a new child care package. Under the new package, the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) replaces the existing Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate. CCS is the main way the Government assists families with their child care fees.

The transition for children into child care is an important milestone for children and families. This transition can be challenging and emotional for both the parent and the child. Therefore, we offer you this information to help the transition process.
We invite families to come for orientation the week before they start: stay in the centre with your child, meet the educators and make yourself familiar with the routines prior to your child’s first day. This assists you and your children to feel more at ease and comfortable with the new environment.
