About Us.

We’ve been providing leading early childhood education and care since 2004.

Our Story

Shaping our Next Generation.

Sunkids was founded in 2004 with the aim to provide children with beautiful childcare environments that nurture the whole child. Our founders had the belief that our community and world would only be made better by providing better outcomes for young children and families.
Sunkids is a family-owned early learning provider with 15 childcare centres across South East Queensland. We pride ourselves on delivering our proven curriculum within state-of-the-art centres, delivered by dedicated and experienced educators alongside the strong working relationships formed with our parents.

By working closely alongside our parents, we strive to draw out the potential in each and every child, preparing them for a successful future and developing a genuine love of learning.

Our Philosophy.

Education of the Heart.

The Sunkids Philosophy was born from the notion that all children deserve an education of the heart, mind and body. The key factors crucial to achieving this holistic care and education are the people, the place and the process. We have ensured each of the six sections that form our philosophy directly relate to these key factors.

Our philosophy forms the backbone of everything we do here at Sunkids; it guides our day to day practices, goals and priorities and ensures we all can provide your child with the very best start to their educational journey.

Children: A Precious Trust

We work hard to be worthy of the trust families have shown by placing their child into our care. We strive to provide all children with the very best to maximise their early education.

Parents: The First Educators

We honour the rights of parents as the first and foremost educators of their children. We develop strong relationships with our parents and work together in the development of their child.

Early Childhood Professionals: The role of the Educator

Our Educators are fully supported in providing the very best for children entrusted to their care. Our Educators act as facilitators to capitalise on teachable moments as they arise naturally through day-to-day situations.

Curriculum: A Child-Centered Framework

Our emergent curriculum responds to, expands and builds upon the ideas and interests of the children. The children are at the centre of all decisions, and planning to provide them with the very best learning opportunities.

Physical Environment: The Third Teacher

Our centres are a place of inspiration and imagination that fosters learning in a creative, aesthetic and orderly ambience. We will provide safe and secure environments that allow children to learn, play and explore.

Relationships & Respectful Interactions: All there is

We value the importance of having and demonstrating respectful relationships with the communities around us. These relationships we build between children, parents, and society.

“Sunkids is the most wonderful childcare we could have hoped for! The staff are accessible, approachable and always go above and beyond to help. Sunkids could not come any more highly recommended by my family.”

– Erin, Sunkids Parent.
