Welcome to Kids on Gallaghers Child Care Centre

Kids on Gallaghers Child Care Centre is a 69 place childcare and kindergarten service that has been a part of the Glen Waverley community since our establishment in January 2008. We are part of the Trident Early Learning early childhood organisation. 

Our high-quality childcare and kindergarten services cater to all children aged between 6 weeks and 6 years located throughout Glen Waverley, Wheelers Hill, Burwood, Vermont, Mount Waverley and beyond. We are situated within the City of Monash council municipality, and are located on Wurundjeri country.

At Kids on Gallaghers Child Care Centre, we love to explore, learn, be creative, all while having fun! We love to celebrate different cultures, and traditional clothing, food, dances, and celebrations. Food is a big part of our environment. From growing our own fruit and veggie crops, to baking, cooking and participating in our own Masterchef classes.

We had our most recent Assessment and Rating Visit in February 2024 and are officially Meeting the National Quality Standard.

Kids on Gallaghers Masterchef

We love teaching the children about nutrition, how to cook and bake, and how different foods have different tastes. We have created a cooking class that involves all children from babies to kinder. In these classes, the children participate in cooking and baking. The meals are shared throughout the day for the children to taste, and are sometimes shared with families at home, too.

Nurturing Growth through Learning and Independence
When educating children at Kids on Gallaghers, we believe that it is vital to provide them with opportunities to learn through play. The children are offered a variety of experiences in both indoor & outdoor environments, with outdoor play being offered during all types of weather. We encourage the children to consider the environment, take risks in their play and make their own choices.

Staff support all children to become independent, develop friendships, and help them to make their own choices and treat one another with equality. Through our program, we offer many opportunities that allow children to engage in different experiences and to pursue their own interests. We believe every child is unique and we encourage them to thrive in their interests/skills in life.

We are passionate about working with the community and giving back. Over the years, we have hosted many fundraisers for charities that are close to our hearts. Our biggest fundraiser has been “The World's Greatest Shave” where we raised close to $4000. Other charities we continue to support and fundraise include: Red Nose Day, the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal, Jeans for Genes Day, and when Australians are affected by droughts and bushfires. We show our appreciation to local communities like hospitals and the Glen Waverley police station by connecting through video messages, pictures sent to the station and visits to the centre from the police officers.
