Quality Early Learning Centres

Kentish has been providing children’s services and quality education and care in the Northern Territory for the last 27 years.

Our Early Learning Centres in Moulden, NT and Tennant Creek, NT offer childcare services tailored to the local communities in which we are established.

Kentish Early Learning Centres ensure that children are provided with a wide range of enriching experiences that focus on the holistic development of a child’s formational years.

Culture and Heritage forms a high objective in all Centre’s to ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children remain connected to culture and that all children have the chance to share in traditional learning experiences of the local communities in which our centres operate.

Our educators are passionate about providing enriching experiences as embedded practices and work towards unique and individual programming for all children, using the children’s voices as a cornerstone of our programming.

Our programs encapsulate contemporary programming methods to ensure that all children have a genuine education aligning with each child’s developmental age. Programming is structured into everyday experiences. However, individuality and spontaneity inform all practices; to ensure that the child’s voice is promoted and fostered at many levels.

All educators within our Early Learning Centres are dedicated professionals who align with Kentish Philosophy and strive towards genuine and lasting relationships with all children, families, and the community.

Our educators create lasting partnerships with members of the community and families; to incorporate this into programming and experiences.

Our Philosophy

At Kentish Lifelong Learning and Care Inc., we believe that quality childcare options are an integral right of all families.

Our staff support and encourage the interest and involvement of families, Northern Territory educators and staff. We embrace the diversity of the community and respect the individual needs of families.

Consultation and information sharing is of vital importance to us, and we encourage all stakeholders to contribute to, and feel part of, the organisation.

We believe that each family, educator, and staff member comes to the organisation with knowledge and life experience, and that these experiences and differences should be embraced and developed. We work together to build on this knowledge and experience through opportunities for training, professional development, and ongoing support.

At Kentish Lifelong Learning and Care Inc., we believe each child should have the opportunity and guidance to develop self-discipline, self-expression, and confidence in their own abilities.

Children should be encouraged to make choices, take responsibility, and build independence within a loving and accepting care environment.

Our NT learning environments incorporate opportunities for problem-solving, creative expression, tolerance, fun and laughter. Your child will learn literacy, language, and numeracy skills at our safe, healthy, and developmentally appropriate childcare settings.

We aim to embrace the global community and to provide a service that reflects diversity and tolerance.
