Ready to Walk Alongside
your Child Through Life’s
Welcome to Wonderschool Throsby, where our vision is to create connected communities that empower children to change the world. Our Throsby centre has a range of spaces dedicated to the growth and development of children aged 6 weeks to 5 years.
Families looking for childcare services in Canberra’s north appreciate our purpose-built facilities at Wonderschool Throsby but when they book a tour, it is the outdoor space, messy and sensory play, and our lovely cubby that children fall in love with! At Throsby, your child will climb, run, jump, create, and learn under our beautiful Canberra skies and connect with nature and the local community on walking excursions to the beautiful Goorooyarroo Nature Reserve, located right next door.
Our early learning curriculum is reflective and responsive to the little humans we are caring for and their needs and their bodies are well nourished with a dedicated kitchen with cooks that provide delicious and nutritious meals and snacks throughout the day.
Our Throsby centre in Gungahlin is truly a wonderful place for little hands and big minds to grow. We provide long daycare with 5 separate rooms to accommodate nursery, toddler, playschool and pre-school configurations and for those families who also have school-aged children, we are conveniently located 200m from Canberra’s newest school, Throsby Public School, to make morning drop-offs and when the time comes, transition to school a breeze.
You and your child can find us opposite the parkland on Kunapalari Street or please refer to our other Canberra childcare centres for locations near your home or work.
The Wonder Approach
Learning Experiences that
Connecting with our Families
We understand your desire to stay connected with your child and keep up to date with their learning and progress. At Wonderschool, we don’t rely on technology to do this, with no apps or online updates on your child.
Our focus is on providing authentic, one-on-one assessments on your child every six months in line with the national Belonging, Being and Becoming: The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF). Relationships are at the core of everything we do. We use moments during drop off and pick up to keep you informed of your child’s day.
What Makes Us Wonderful?
Enriching learning experiences that help build communities and provide opportunities for children to learn about their neighbourhood, including engagement with local businesses and local walks in the surrounding suburbs, which is a regular adventure at our centres in Canberra. We encourage families to explore our approach to quality care and early years learning framework tailored to each age group – infants, toddlers and preschoolers.
Parents are welcome to come in and share their own skills, such as music education or cultural experiences, with the children.
We are committed to do our part for the environment by utilising sustainable classrooms and teaching the children about responsibility and accountability. We have recycling programs in place along with composting, worm farms and limiting food wastage.
Creative arts are promoted and supported so your child will have opportunities to express themselves through music, movement, painting and sculpture.
All of our meals are made from scratch and cater to all children from our commercial kitchen. The menu is in keeping with Nutrition Australia and modified to meet our children’s dietary and cultural needs.
