Gumnuts family values…

Our philosophy underpins everything we value; family, community and education. Children, no matter their ages, have a voice in the outcome of their day every day. Our environments are set up to inspire and engage; reflecting the image of the child. Our ‘Reggio Emilia inspired approach’ ensures that your child is the centre of learning in a holistic and caring setting.

There’s no pretend stuff here; you’ll see real learning, real play both indoors and outdoors; sometimes it’s messy sometimes its dirty, and it’s always fun.


Our oldest daughter, Isabelle, started at Gumnuts on Hardy’s Road when she was 10 months old. At the beginning, like most of other parents, I had mixed emotions and tonnes of worries about her not being able to adjust to the new environment. However, not long after talking to the educators on that first day, most of my worries were gone. The staff members are so friendly and easy to talk to and after being shown around the centre. Thank you to all the staff members for your great work.

If you are looking for an environment to send your children to that feels like home, then Gumnuts is the place to go. Our son Bryce has grown so much in the time that he has been there. The educators are happy to work as a team with you and your family if you have any concerns or want some advice. I love the open door policy and the play based learning. I would recommend Gumnuts to anyone who is looking for a childcare centre.

After a rough start in another centre we moved our son to Gumnuts. What a wonderful surprise! Since starting there he has grown and thrived under the care of the most beautifully passionate educators we have ever seen. Gumnuts has been so welcoming to our family as a whole, and adding extra activities such as their ‘bush kindy’ program and the “little big sport” soccer program has made it an absolute winner in our son’s eyes. We are so happy we gave Gumnuts a chance and can not recommend it highly enough.
