Ararat 800

Our Centre

At Ararat800 children are encouraged to have fun, develop friendships and build on general life skills.

Our service reflects a respectful, supportive, and sustainable family environment which enables and empowers children to grow and thrive.  Our flexible routine supports children to develop as confident and involved learners. 

Inclusion of all children and adults is valued and supported through care, empathy and respect regardless of background, beliefs or abilities. We believe that children have the right to have their individual and cultural identity recognized and respected.

We respect the role that families play and seek to build meaningful relationships with each family.

Our fun, safe, relaxed environment promotes communication and connections to friends, educators and the Ararat community.
