Beresfield Community Children’s Education Centre provides a safe space for children to learn and grow. We embrace the early years of a child’s life and give the children in our care the confidence they require to foster relationships, develop communication skills, and acquire the autonomy and independence required for the successful transition to ‘big school’. From an early age we extend on each child’s interests through play-based learning experiences that are both spontaneous and intentional. The Beresfield Community Children’s Education Centre is a fully accredited long day care centre, providing quality baby, toddler and pre-school programs for 59 children. The Centre caters for children with special needs and is operated by Newcastle City Council. The Centre has full kitchen facilities and provides a two course meal for lunch and morning and afternoon tea for each child. This often includes children with specific dietary requirements.
