Welcome to Six Hats
At Six Hats Early Childhood Service we believe each child is a unique individual in their own right and that their special abilities and interests contribute meaningfully to our diverse community. We work in partnership with families to provide quality care through an educational program nurtured in a welcoming, secure and authentic environment. We believe in taking the time to build reciprocal, trusting relationships so each child and their family feels a sense of belonging.
Our programs facilitate development of the following skills: enquiry, problem-solving, healthy relationships, resilience, persistence, physical strength and coordination, healthy choices. This is accomplished through a holistic, play-based, school-readiness program co-constructed with the children to investigate children’s interests and make new discoveries.
