Located within a friendly neighbourhood, conveniently next to Kingsville Primary School, The Hive is only 25 minutes away from the Melbourne CBD by car!
Our recently renovated centre has 4 spacious rooms and a maximum capacity of 66 places. Inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach, our curriculum, as well as our philosophy, revolve centrally around your child and tailoring the best possible care to support their individual needs, interests, and strengths.
The Hive has always firmly believed in maintaining a transparent bridge of communication between our centre’s educators and parents. This bridge is established by utilizing the Kindy Hub Application, which allows us to work closely with our families and receive any critical and outstanding feedback.
We happily provide for a range of ages: from 6 weeks to 4 years, in our nursery, toddler, pre-kinder, and kinder rooms.
As a Reggio inspired centre, we firmly believe that a child has no one way to communicate but rather 100 different ways. Therefore, we strive to provide facilities that can further develop our fun, nurturing, and educational environment while simultaneously exposing our children to as many different experiences as possible. Our facilities include veggie patches, bicycle courses, playgrounds, and much more!
The Hive’s highly qualified staff are committed to providing excellent services from 6 am to 7 pm, Monday to Friday. Amongst our team, we have our fantastic Chef – Sandeep Kaur, whose mouth-watering nutritious menu is loved by all.
That’s all about us! Feel free to call on 1300 000 843 or alternatively come on down and say hi. We’d love to get to know you and show you all the opportunities awaiting your child at The Hive Kingsville!
Hi, my name is Joanne Steele and I am the Centre Director at The Hive Early Learning Centre, Kingsville.
The Hive has been my second home for almost 5 years now! I graduated from Victoria University Melton in 1991 with an Associate Diploma of Advance Science in Childcare which makes this year my 21st year in the industry. I’ve had the opportunity to explore and experience many roles in the Childcare industry, as a Room Leader, Assistant Director as well as previous Centre Director positions.
I believe early childhood learning is a great milestone in every child’s education and therefore it is essential for us as educators to create a safe and nurturing environment. An environment in which a child can foster and develop a special eagerness to learn and grow. I enjoy establishing professional relationships with our families, which helps us to work cohesively in developing the perfect environment that connects home and centre lives.
Playing a small part in a child’s life is a massive achievement my team and I take pride in. We are absolutely determined to produce the highest level of care over the progression of a child’s educational journey. We are here to assure our families that they have made the right choice choosing us for their children.
