Mount Coolum Day Care Centre


Be amazed by our beautiful, natural, inviting environment where children can be Wild and Free!

We have an amazing playground, complete with our very own WATER PARK for those hot summer days we all love so much.

We are bringing back the “wild hood” for kids.  Our large, natural outdoor learning environment has been created for nature play, allowing children to thrive, explore and run free.  Our playgrounds are complete with sand pits, a sensory path wandering through a calming sensory garden, outdoor learning area, water park, dry creek bed, adventure play zone, scramble net course and large digging area, complete with mud kitchen.


We believe that children should be “Wild and Free”.  We embrace nature and know that your children will benefit enormously from being immersed in natural learning environments.  Our commitment to this includes our BUSH KINDY, where children attend regular fortnightly excursions to the bush land of the Mount Coolum National Park.

We are also committed to being a sustainable Centre and teaching children to take care of our planet.  Our children love tending to our vegetable and herb gardens which teaches them about their natural environment.  We also have a worm farm which helps to teach the children the importance of nature in the environment.

The children are encouraged to feed and care for our chickens, stingless bees, fish and birds, giving them an awareness of protecting our planet and wildlife.  Eggs are collected to be used in our class cooking projects, along with vegetables and herbs from our gardens.


We have created environments that go beyond the standard play equipment to challenge children’s mindsets and make every day fun and exciting, whilst beginning to teach them important life skills.  We provide play based experiences to foster, inspire and encourage children in a friendly, age appropriate environment.

Our focus is on real play and finding the balance between education, care and play.  This is what sets us apart from other Centres.

Book a tour to see for yourself that this is where your child can grow and become confident, independent and caring, while also learning the skills required to prepare them for their transition to school.
