Children's Centres for Early Childhood Development and Parenting bring together care, education, health, community development activities and family services for families and their young children from birth to eight years of age. Children's Centres help parents and children to get the support they need, when they need it, within their own community. Each Children's Centre is tailored to meet the needs of the local community.

The Trinity Gardens Children's Centre is located on the Trinity Gardens School site overlooking a large grassed oval and up to the Adelaide Hills. The new purpose built building has spaces for children and parents. The Centre has play, learning and meeting spaces including its own outdoor learning area. It is flooded with natural light and fresh air.

At the Trinity Gardens Children's Centre, qualified early childhood staff work together with families, to provide quality learning programs and care to support children's development, health, education and well-being.

The Centre aims to be a friendly place for families to meet, learn more about parenting, gain advice and information on health, personal and family support.

Occasional Care

Occasional Care provides 'now and then' child care to enable parents/caregivers to participate in activities, fulfil work commitments, keep appointments, or have a break from their child/ren on an occasional basis rather than as a regular booking in a long day care centre.

The Centre offers Occasional care on - Monday mornings from 8.45 to 11:30am, Thursday mornings - 8.45 to 11.30am and Thursday afternoons 12.15 to 3.00pm. Led by a qualified staff member, the team offers a high quality play-based program. Occasional Care is provided on a sessional basis and is booked one session in advance, with a small number of places retained for emergency care on the day. Children who do not access any other early childhood facility are eligible to access the program.

You can get involved in our centre in many ways. If you are interested in helping to make decisions about how the Centre operates you might choose to join the Partnership Group. Volunteer programs are also available if you are interested in a hands-on role in the centre’s daily operations. Volunteering will help you gain valuable skills that could provide potential training and employment opportunities. Parents are always welcome to help with parent groups, cooking or craft activities or at centre events like working bees.Click on the link below to see the current program.

There is a strong connection between the Children's Centre and the school. This makes transition from the Centre to the school much easier for both parents and children. The school Principal and the Centre Director have a close working relationship and share a common commitment to children and their families.
