The centre surrounds a large, naturally shaded outdoor play area complete with sandpits, bike tracks, obstacle course, slide and hill mound, a raised performance stage and interactive garden beds.

Within our rooms, you’ll find beautiful places where children can feel safe and at home. We provide a variety of modern learning resources, cosy nooks, tranquil reading hubs, and engaging play spaces, all of which supports quality interactions amongst our children and educators.

Every child at Sunkids Ormiston benefits from our standard inclusions such as on-site chefs preparing nutritious gourmet meals daily, complimentary extra-curricular yoga, music and sports programs, complimentary nappies and linen, and access to state-of-the-art learning resources.

This convenient location makes us the perfect choice for families within Ormiston, Raby Bay, Cleveland, Capalaba, Alexandra Hills, Thornlands, or Wellington Point.

Hi Parents,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome families, children and the community into our centre at Sunkids Ormiston.

Our centre creates a family-orientated atmosphere that supports Sunkids philosophy, identifying children as a “Precious Trust”. It is through this vision that the educators at Sunkids Ormiston create trusting relationships with open communication to support children’s learning throughout the indoor and outdoor environments.

Sunkids Ormiston prides itself on the environmental setups on display for children, families and educators to engage with. With learning evident throughout the rooms, children take pride in their work and this is displayed through our visual learning boards, learning stories and photographs that are uploaded to our learning portal, Storypark.

Children are supported through trusting relationships developed with educators and this is shown through the interactions that occur during morning drop off, afternoon pick up and throughout the day. We encourage families to be involved in the centre through our open-door policy, providing the opportunity to engage with and further support relationships.

We welcome everyone into our Sunkids community and hope to see you soon.

Learning at Ormiston.

A Place to Play, Learn & Grow.

Learning at Sunkids Ormiston 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.

Experience our way of learning through a hands-on guided tour of our facilities at Ormiston. Contact the team to organise a time that suits you.
Extra-Curricular Activities at Ormiston.

Available each and every week, we offer a range of extra-curricular activities for all children to enjoy at no extra cost.

Nutrition at Ormiston.

Healthy Food your Kids will Actually Eat.

Healthy eating is a priority at all Sunkids centres, and it’s no different at Ormiston. 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.

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.

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.
