The Centre

 

In May 2017 Hamilton House Early Childhood Centre changed ownership Julie Adams-York a passionate Early Childhood Educator who has had the privilege working with children since 1972 became our new owner. Since the new ownership we have welcomed a new Centre Manager Emily and Early Childhood Teacher Jess has joined the team. Our amazing staff, families and children have been delighted to see the positive changes being made in all areas. Renovations have taken place inside and the outside character of the building has been enhanced by new paint work, in keeping with the era of the building, a wonderful improvement to Hamilton House. A new playground designed by "Wearthy" was completed in December 2017.

Our Rooms

Our rooms have been designed to reflect a home away from home atmosphere.

We are air-conditioned for hot humid days and heated during the winter months. Each room, is designed and equipped to appropriately meet the needs of the children. In keeping with the home like environment, we have included soft furnishings, rugs, natural wooden tables and chairs, photos, displays and art work are neatly presented reflecting our respect for our children.


Our Resources

Natural, authentic resources and materials

We provide the children with natural materials, presenting these in baskets, wooden bowls, trays and jars. You will see natural resources used such as pebbles/stones, wooden slices shells, seed pods, natural wool, light boxes, plants and much more. The children are conscious of the importance of sustainability and therefore use recycled paper, cardboard, fabric, bark to express their creativity.
