Our main values

Our Philosophy & Mission

We strive to work together to build and maintain trusting and respectful relationships with both children and families.


Ararat Childcare and Kinder Retreat provides exceptional quality care and education for children aged six weeks to five years including a kindergarten program with a Qualified Kindergarten Teacher.


Our meals are prepared in our registered kitchen, using fresh ingredients some are from our children’s gardens. Our Qualified chef plans and prepares healthy and nutritonal meals. We have a seasonal menu which also rotates every 3 weeks to provide variety and multicultural meals to invite children to try new tastes and promoting cultural awareness. Children participate in growing, picking and cooking experiences from our garden.


We have strong links with our local community and your children will attend regular community excursions. Families are advised of these community events upon enrolment.


We are committed to sustainable practices when educating the children on how they can help to minimize waste, reduce energy and water consumption and less toxins. We have introduced a vegetable garden, a worm farm and recycling stations and a continuing program in education for children.

As every mother would, I definitely was looking for a school that I could rely on. Trustimg your child in someone else’s hands isn’t easy, however Little birdies proved that I can be calm about my kid’s wellbeing and education. Thank you so much!
