About us

Reid Early Childhood Centre is situated in the grounds of the Reid Campus of the Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) on Constitution Avenue, Reid. The CIT owns the building with the centre run by a not-for-profit association made up of the centre's parents. The association has a management agreement with the CIT for the operation of the centre.

Our aim is to provide high quality care and education for children whilst
their parents or primary carers are at work or studying. We cater for
children from six weeks old to school age. We are a community-based centre that is utilised by parents in the general community as well as those who study, teach or work at the CIT.

We are open from 8.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday, providing care for 67 children from six weeks old to school age in four rooms:

Nursery: 6 weeks - 2 years (10 children)
Toddlers: 18 months - 2.5 years (16 children)
Junior preschool: 2 years - 3.5 years (20 children)
Preschool room: 3 years - 5 years (21 children)

Dividing the children into these groups enables us to provide an appropriate and nurturing environment for play that enhances learning and self-confidence, and creates the stimulation each child needs to develop their abilities to their full potential in each of four main areas -
emotional, social, physical and intellectual.

Our preschool room has a qualified preschool teacher, who holds an Early Childhood Degree and runs a program equivalent to that of a Government Preschool.

We hope that all parents, children and staff enjoy positive experiences
during their time with us.
