Mittagong's leading child care centre

A supportive and nurturing environment for your child

QCE Child Care is located in Mittagong in the Southern Highlands of NSW. In September 2010 we passed our first accreditation with one of the highest levels of quality care. This is due to the dedication of our staff who provide a safe environment for the children to learn and develop. Our aim is to provide exceptional levels of care and education for all children and their families. We provide programs specifically designed for each age group to promote their development intellectually, physically, creatively and socially. Our programs also include a school readiness component for those entering big school the following year. For further details, call our child care centre today.

Qualified staff

The director of our centre has been in the proffesion for 11 years. She started by gaining her Diploma in Community Services and continued to study while she worked and gained her Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood). Her experience includes working as room leader and authorised supervisor of a 75 place centre. She is now the owner and director of QCE Child Care and an active member of the local, non - profit organisation.

Other Educators in the centre have qualifications ranging from trainees, Certificate III, Diploma in Community Services, and Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood).

Our educators continually develop their skills and education. This includes formal training to gain greater qualifications and short in-service programs to educate the staff in particular aspects of child care.

All educators hold a first aid certificate within the frist year of their training and a current Working With Children Check.
