Honouring Our Community and Environment

At Acacia, we're more than just a childcare centre; we're a cornerstone of community and environmental stewardship. As a not-for-profit organisation, our essence is rooted in the celebration of diversity and the nurturing of young minds.

Play-Centred Learning

At Acacia, we adopt a child-centred approach that sees children as inventive learners, emphasising the importance of play in learning.

We enable children to build their own worldviews through active, meaningful participation and social interaction.

Our child-led curriculum promotes exploration of interests and skill development in a natural, playful setting.

We support their existing knowledge, fostering a collaborative learning environment with children, families, and educators.

Acacia is more than childcare—it's a community hub nurturing young minds with a strong respect for diversity and the environment.

We are committed to respecting our world and nurturing a better future for everyone.
