Welcome to Djinda Dreaming, where the journey of early childhood education becomes a magical experience. Situated in the heart of Huntingdale, our childcare center is dedicated to providing a nurturing environment that fosters the holistic development of every child.

Holistic Curriculum:

At Djinda Dreaming, our curriculum is designed to encompass every aspect of a child’s development – cognitive, social, emotional, and physical. Through play-based learning, children explore, discover, and build essential skills that form the bedrock of their future academic success.

  1. Play-Based Learning: We believe that play is a child’s natural way of learning. Our play-based approach allows children to engage in activities that are not only enjoyable but also purposeful, promoting cognitive development, creativity, and problem-solving skills.
  2. Inclusive and Culturally Enriched Education: Djinda Dreaming is committed to embracing diversity and inclusivity. Our curriculum incorporates elements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, offering children a rich and multicultural educational experience that fosters respect, understanding, and appreciation for different perspectives.
  3. STEAM Education: Djinda Dreaming introduces children to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) concepts in an age-appropriate and interactive manner. Our hands-on activities spark curiosity, exploration, and critical thinking, laying the foundation for future academic pursuits.
