About our childcare centre

Hours of fun and learning

Open daily throughout the year (except for weekends and statutory holidays)

7.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Thursday; 7.30am to 5.00pm Friday


Like you, we want the best for your child. So we don’t compromise on safe, supportive, care and education. Our team works hard to ensure your family receives the highest standard of care for your weekly fee, which includes:

  • a generous annual leave allowance
  • a nutritious midday meal, prepared fresh at the centre daily – so you won’t need to pack kai
  • healthy mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks to fuel your child’s play and learning
  • our Positive Parenting program – offering tips, advice and support for every family

Because every child has different needs, we ask that you supply your child’s own bottles, formula and nappies for each day.

Why choose our centre?

Our homely, childcare centre opened in October 2000. Here, our daily rituals do more than keep your child safe, loved and learning. They celebrate how we all come together to create memories of the heart, supporting your child with rich learning experiences that help them develop positive behaviours and character traits.

We support new immigrants to our community and guide families into our care and learning environment with individualised attention. We love to hear about your cultural customs and special celebrations, so that we can weave these into our programs for your child’s benefit.

Welcome to Go Bananas Childcare!

Leaving a child with a childcare facility is an important decision. For most of the children, it marks the first time they will be away from their parents for a long period of time. We are delighted that you are considering our services as an integral part of your child’s upbringing. We are committed to providing the best quality care and education for children from 3 months to 6 years old.

Research shows a child’s first five years are critical to all future learning and development as their brains develop most rapidly during this time. By age three a child’s brain has already developed to 80% of its adult size with brain connections formed through the interactions, experiences, and relationships the child makes. The quality of these interactions, experiences, and relationships is crucial and that is why a child’s involvement in a quality early learning program is so important.

Why Choose Us

  • Provide indoor and outdoor educational spaces which are age-appropriate and designed to engage and support children to discover, grow and learn.
  • Offer children the experiences to support their cognitive, emotional and physical development.
  • Plan from each child’s individual interests, we aim to work alongside their interest, making them to be creative, curious and confident to develop positive and lasting relationships with their peers.
  • Promote the very best practices to nurture children’s well-being and support them to fulfil their potential.
  • Partner with families to ensure our children feel a sense of belonging.
  • Acknowledge and respect the diversity of our families and communities in which they reside.
  • Have educators, teachers, and leaders who are passionate, dedicated and they support and celebrate each child’s individual talents and strengths through meaningful interactions, experiences, and relationships.
