Learning at Burleigh Waters.

A Place to Play, Learn & Grow.

Learning at Sunkids Burleigh Waters incorporates our own emergent curriculum, play-based learning opportunities, and industry best practice to provide your child with a quality early education and the very best start to their life.

Our learning isn’t just confined to inside, as our educators look to create significant learning opportunities by setting up invitations to play throughout all areas of our centre. Each time our children enter a room or outdoor area, they will be met with brand new play opportunities that spark genuine excitement, curiosity, and creativity.

By incorporating real-life experiences, the children’s interests and key elements such as literacy, mathematics and science into the children’s play experiences, children are exposed to these educational foundations in the most engaging and exciting way.

Nutrition at Burleigh Waters.

Healthy Food your Kids will Actually Eat.

Healthy eating is a priority at all Sunkids centres, and it’s no different at Burleigh Waters. There’s no need to pack a lunchbox, as our on-site chef prepares morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea for the children each day. Plus, we cater for all dietary requirements upon request. Our meals ensure all the little tummies are full with healthy and nutritious food to support their learning and daily activities. There’s also complimentary fruit available in our reception foyers each day.

Our alternating weekly menus change throughout the seasons and are perfect for even the fussiest of eaters. The menus are planned in advance by incorporating nutritional needs, the children’s input and our parent’s suggestions.

Mealtimes are special at Sunkids, as children enjoy social interaction through our alfresco dining piazzas. Children are encouraged to serve themselves and others, interact with each other and enjoy beautiful food and conversation within a relaxed and unrushed environment.

For our babies who are just starting out on solid food, we provide a range of food options suitable to their age, such as pureed fruits and foods, rice puddings, and more.

Discover more about our quality, nutritious, chef-prepared meals served daily by viewing our menu example.

Kindergarten at Burleigh Waters.

Providing the Best Start to School.

Our Queensland Government-approved Kindergarten program is delivered by Bachelor Qualified Teachers and provides your child with the best preparation for their future schooling, whilst developing key social skills and confidence.

The program is based on the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline and the Early Years Learning Framework, tailored to your child’s individual interests. Your child will develop the knowledge and skills necessary to begin formal schooling, as well as a passion for learning.

Our specifically designed Kindergarten room allows for self-selection and child-initiated activities including imaginative play, construction, problem-solving, art and craft, quiet reflection times, reading, home play, access to technology devices like computers and tablets, and more.

The Kindergarten Children are also encouraged to take greater responsibility for their own belongings, choices and behaviours, as well as responsibility for caring for the kindergarten room pet, such as a pet goldfish.

Provide your child with the very best start to their formal schooling life by enrolling into the Sunkids Kindergarten Program today.

– Mikayla, Parent

I am blown away by Sunkids Burleigh. My son previously attended a centre in Melbourne which was fine and we were happy enough… But now that I’ve got Sunkids to compare to I am just so impressed with how amazing it is. The staff are all so lovely and caring and the children are all always so so happy. The outdoor space is amazing and the kids are free to explore the play area outdoors for most of the day. I highly recommend Sunkids to anyone looking for childcare in Burleigh but not sure where to start.

– Melissa, Parent.

I thought I must write a review my son has attended Burleigh Sunkids since 2010 and I have nothing but good comments to say about them. they are caring,the centre is always clean and tidy,the educational program is excellent. My son is not an angel but the staff handle him extremely well and i feel confident leaving him at the centre. He has made lots of friends and even asks on weekends if he can go which is fabulous as I know he is happy and content there.
