We acknowledge the Wandandian people, Jerrinja clan, from Yuin Nation are the traditional caretakers of this land.
Reconciliation Australia acknowledges and pays respect to the past, present and future Traditional Custodians and Elders of this nation and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
The Centre is light and spacious, with an open plan that ensures that supervision of the children is maintained, no matter where you are in the Centre. We believe that providing a "home like" environment allows children to transition into formal care in a smooth comforting way.
The Centre is on half an acre, which backs on to scenic bush land in Park Road at St Georges Basin. We have a beautiful garden setting, with natural grass and features providing the children with freedom and space to explore .

We have three groups that operate both independently and in conjunction with each other.
Green Group 2-3 yrs, Red Group 3-4yrs and Blue Group 4-5yrs.
The 3-4yrs and 4-5yrs share the play space at this time. The 2-3 yrs play independently allowing the younger children to freely explore and investigate their learning environment in their own way and time.
This may change due to numbers of children enrolled in each group.
Tasman Park is open 8am-4pm weekdays
We are closed for 2 weeks per year over the Christmas break and Public Holidays.
We are a Sunsafe Centre with our policies complying with the Cancer Council of Australia.
We follow the Munch and Move program for healthy eating and exercise throughout the day.

Tasman Park is a Nationally accredited service completing assessment and rating through the Department of Education and Communities. We have a transitional approach to school and implement a preschool program using the Early Years Learning Framework.
