Nurturing Self Confidence. Inspiring Creativity.

Our goal is to make learning fun. This ensures a comfortable and relaxed environment which allows kids to be themselves. This aids in the cultivation of not only self confidence, but confidence in learning. We believe that this confidence will serve them immensely in their future.

We make sure that every child who joins the Mentone family feels safe & secure. This is of utmost importance when preparing kids for a successful, happy future.

“Family and Community is what we have built here at Mentone. From the moment you step through our gates, you feel a sense of belonging that you will not get anywhere else”

– April Fox 2IC

Healthy Nutrition: The Building Block of a Healthy Mind & Body.

Healthy nutrition is fundamental in developing a strong immune system, body, and mind. Children need a varied diet, rich in whole foods and fresh ingredients.This is why our kitchen is the heart of the Mentone Centre. Our chef prepares nutrient-rich, balanced meals daily. This gives the children all the energy and nutrition that their young bodies need for a day full of activities.Our young gardeners grow fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables in our garden. This not only gets them involved and curious, it also makes them more likely to try different, healthy food options.

Expertly Curated Programs & Unique Facilities

As a parent of little ones, you need to feel confident that your children are in a safe environment while they play and learn. We have designed the centre with an open concept so you can see your children at all times. Bright, colourful, warm and welcoming. This environment is perfect for children to explore, learn and grow.

Our programs offer a unique blend of warmth and fun. Our goal is to provide a safe, comfortable space that encourages learning, growth, and self expression for children aged six weeks to six years. We believe in the importance of fostering connection between children, we make sure every relationship is intentional, positive and nurturing.

Our Philosophy

We believe that each child is unique, with their own individual needs. We strive to provide a warm, caring environment where they are able to develop to their fullest potential, fostering both autonomy and self-esteem.

An individual focused program allows us to provide high quality care and learning according to each child’s needs and stage of life development. We also have a special interest in  cultivating gifted and talented children.

We aim to build a strong partnership with parents so that we can collaborate in the ongoing care, nurturing and education of their children. We encourage the active involvement of parents in order to make the transition from home to childcare as comfortable as possible. Staff and parents stay in regular communication about each child’s progress and we actively encourage parental contribution to programs and policies.

“ My two boys have been attending this centre from the baby room and all the way through. I cannot speak highly enough of all the staff. Everyone makes you feel welcome and treats you like family. Welcoming environment and my kids love going each day.
