Centre Information

  • Scallywags is a 58 place centre and caters for children from 6 weeks to 5 years.

    At Scallywags we believe family are the most important people in your child’s life.
    We are open from 7am until 6pm, Monday to Friday for 51 weeks a year (we close public holidays and from 25th December to 2nd January).

    Within our four rooms children access a suitable early year’s program tailored to their individual needs. For children in the year before school, we run a Queensland Approved Kindergarten Program.

    We provide care for the following age groups:

    • Koalas (Infant) – 6 weeks to 2 years with a 1:4 ratio max 8 children
    • Possums (Toddlers)- 15 months to 3 years with a 1:5 ratio
    • Wombats (Jnr Kindy) – 2 years to 4 years with a 1:5 and 1:11 ratio
    • Kangaroos (Kindy) – 3 years to 5 years with a ratio of 1:11

    At Scallywags we believe family are the most important people in your child’s life. Therefore, we have an open-door policy, where you and your extended family members are welcome to visit our Centre at any time.

    Our outdoor space consists of three play spaces to allow children to explore and develop their skills. These spaces allow opportunities for both active and quiet play experiences.

    The lower playground has soft fall built in under the turf to allow for safe play while climbing and balancing. Here in this play space areas are set up for children to join individual and small group activities such as block construction, art, role play and reading.

    The upper playground allows for more active play with the fixed play spaces. Here your child will find our sandpit, fort, slide, swings and ladders to explore.

    The side garden allows children to go on an adventure and explore gardens, bridges, a rock river, mud pit, teepee and drums.
