Image of a Child

We view children as worthwhile citizens who at any age have the right to a voice and to be heard. Every child has a limitless potential, brings with them prior life experiences, family values and ideas that are recognised and respected within the centre.

School Readiness

Gardner Farm Child Care takes a very progressive approach to school readiness. We believe that each stage and age of a child’s life is to be celebrated for the accomplishments made and not be only about preparation for where they are going next. If we spend our whole life preparing for the next stage we never get to truly enjoy being in the moment.

When we moved down here I was finding it hard to find a great centre that my daughter felt comfortable in, that was until we found Gardner Farm. Aaliyah just loves the staff, animals and mud pit!!! She comes home telling us a new story after each day there. The staff well there is not a word to describe how fantastic they are!! If you want a centre with a caring welcoming atmosphere, natural environment and that allows kids to be kids you won't find any better than Gardner Farm.

We absolutely loved this centre. the staff are amazing, the environment is beautiful with natural grass animals and lots of outside time. but very importantly its one of the cheapest and yet still provides healthy food. I highly recommend Gardeners Farm to anyone wanting quality care for their precious little ones.
