Childcare Centre

At the Silky Oaks Childcare Centre, our goal is to support the individual learning and development of each child through child-centred, play-based learning.

The Silky Oaks Childcare Centre operates independently as a community based centre under the umbrella of Silky Oaks Children’s Haven. We strive to ensure that solid and broad foundations are carefully sculptured by educators on a daily basis, supporting the individual learning and development of each child through child-centred, play-based learning.


Trusting and reciprocal relationships are built between children, parents/carers and educators, providing a platform from which a collaborative journey of support for families to reach their full potential, begins and is fostered.
