Get to know our Ocean Keys Childcare Centre in Clarkson
Hello childcare families!
Welcome to Atlantis Childcare Ocean Keys, in Clarkson. We are a beautiful, modern and bright Childcare Centre located in Clarkson and the northern suburbs of Perth.
Our Childcare Care Rooms at Ocean Keys cater for different ages, with qualified, professional Childcare Educators in each room to specialise in the developmental and emotional needs of that particular age group. We cater for:
- Nursery (8 weeks to confident walker)
- Babies (Confident walker to 2 years)
- Toddlers (2 years to 3 years)
- Kindy (3 years to 4 years)
- Preschool (4 years to 5 years) Opened late 2020.
Why choose us?
Our staff are very special and continually strive to be the best Childcare Educators they can be. We are so lucky to have such caring, passionate staff who put your children’s needs above and beyond their own.
All of our staff have been with us for a long time, allowing us to build very special relationships with your family. Consistency is so important to young children so, having the same friendly faces here every day when you drop off your little one, makes it feel that little bit more like a second home.
Unlike any other childcare centre we have our very own learning facility, the Atlantis Education Centre. This centre is available exclusively to our childcare children and is just next door, it houses our brand-new Preschool room, art studio, library, nature playground and much more. This unique learning facility forms part of our daily routine for our Kindy and Preschool children allowing them to break away into smaller groups with our Educators. Children from our babies and toddler rooms also have access every day. The Atlantis Education Centre is a fantastic hub which is available exclusively for our Atlantis families and is not open to the general public.
We have a separate Kindy room and Preschool to ensure the children are participating in age-appropriate learning. Our Preschool is solely for children aged 4 to 5 years who are already attending Kindy at a school. Our Early Childhood Teacher works hard to link-in with local schools and their curriculums, ensuring we are reinforcing the learning they are receiving while at school.
What our Clarkson Childcare Centre offers your family
We pride ourselves on helping you anyway you can. We understand your lives are busy, so we offer a Breakfast Station for parents in the morning and a Refresher Station with a drink and a biscuit for your trip home. Anything we can do to help you get out the door in the morning and get in the door at night.
We understand how difficult it can be to leave your child in care, so we spend a lot of time and attention in making this a smooth and pleasant experience for both yourself and your child alike. Some of the things we offer are:
- Family Workshops and Seminars on important topics (currently on-hold due to Covid)
- Regular and consistent communication via our Educators, Facebook Page and emails
- Access to Kindyhub – providing secure, daily updates on your child’s learning, keeping you in-touch and up-to-date.
We also spend a lot of time really getting to know your child, as the better we know them, the more tailored care we provide. Every child is an individual and we celebrate and embrace that individuality. Sometimes, the smallest changes to a child’s routine can make all the difference.
What makes our Clarkson Childcare Centre special?
The daily incursion to the Atlantis Education Centre, as well as our Outdoor Play areas, mean your child has the best of both worlds. Whether it is rain, hail or shine – they have an opportunity to run wild and let out all of that fantastic energy.
Our main outdoor play area has covered sandpits and a Nature Garden, complete with vegetable patch and our very own chickens, allowing your child to form that all important connection with the physical world. We also love to offer your child opportunity for messy play and water play, saving you the mess at home, and allowing children to be children.
Each Care Room also has a separate yard area, allowing your child the opportunity to play safely within their own age range and developmental stage.
We engage in the following activities should your child show an interest:
- Sensory Learning (this is a focal point for our Centre)
- Outdoor Play
- Arts and Crafts
- Pyjama Drama
- Early Numeracy and Literacy (School Readiness)
- Animal Care
- Sports Coaching
A quick chat with your Childcare Coordinator Julie
Hello families, I am Julie, your Coordinator at Atlantis Childcare Ocean Keys in Clarkson.
I am a Qualified Teacher and have worked in the Early Education and Care industry for the past 20-years, where I first began as a Nanny, then moved into Social Work, Primary Teaching and now Childcare.
I first entered the Early Childhood Education and Care industry, as I wanted to be part of creating a positive future through our Children, by providing a place that children are able to feel safe, happy and secure enough to be able to learn and develop to their full potential.
I have been with Atlantis Childcare Clarkson since we opened and have loved being a part of that process. Watching our Clarkson service open and grow into what it is today, has been one of the best memories I have since working in Childcare.
I absolutely love what I do, especially Science and Exploration activities that really bring out children’s natural sense of curiosity and wonder about the world they live in.
My favourite part of this job is developing very special relationships with the families we work with and watching children grow and develop from babies, through to school age. I look forward to hopefully meeting your family soon.
You are about to make one of the most important decisions that you’ll ever have to make in your life as a parent, that of who you choose to look after your child.
At Atlantis you can be guaranteed that your child is in a caring and safe environment. We look forward to having the opportunity to show you around and for you to meet an outstanding team of individuals who respect each individual child and their needs.
It is our mission to provide a caring and safe learning environment, where individual attention maximises and enriches the development and potential of children in their first journey into their schooling life.
