KCLC Long Daycare and Kindergarten
KCLC Long Daycare centre offers a new world of fun for your child to learn through play everyday. We provide a safe and nurturing environment for your child to learn and develop through play.
KCLC’s dynamic, vibrant and inspiring program is designed by our experienced early learning educators. Our community focused program is based on the knowledge that children are naturally curious and engaged learners, and that each child develops at their own pace. Our program is flexible, individual and engaging. We aim to offer every child a rich and unique learning experience that will give them the best possible start in life.
Our Childcare Centre is designed to ensure that your child can learn through play in a safe environment. Our indoor/outdoor program ensures that children have the freedom to move freely into each learning environment to build naturally curious learners for life.

Our delicious and healthy menu is prepared lovingly by our centre cooks, who include a variety of eating options. Meals are made with fresh ingredients prepared specially for your child.
Along with healthy eating your child will enjoy the outdoor play space available for them to explore and get active.
