The team at TG’s Child Care, Australia’s leading early learning-preschool and long day care provider, has kicked-off the New Year in exciting style with the opening of its new Preschool and Long Day Care service in Urangan, Queensland.

The new all-day childcare service, catering to families in Urangan and surrounding communities of Hervey Bay, is the latest addition to the TG’s Child Care network which has five other services across New South Wales - three in Wauchope, one in Armidale and another in Uralla.

It’s the latest embodiment of a vision to create a nature-based early childhood environment established more than 22 years ago by owners Gayle and Trevor Kee, when they opened their first TG’s Child Care in Wauchope.

Their vision – with a philosophy of learning through play at its heart - aligns with a forthcoming federal government review of Australia’s early learning framework that’s expected to endorse curriculums of play-based learning for babies, toddlers and preschoolers, instead of rote-based learning.

A Dedicated Mission where Playing is Learning for Life

Over the years they’ve remained true to the TG’s Child Care mission statement – “Playing is Learning for Life” – with a purpose to create, develop and encourage independent young minds to embrace collective thinking with their peers, in a fun, loving and nurturing place.

Gayle Kee, an experienced early childhood teacher and husband Trevor, a qualified landscape designer, have developed a proven method of offering natural, safe, secure and nurturing spaces where children play, live and learn in a well-designed and engaging learning environment.

For TG’s Child Care’s natural outdoor environments have been carefully designed by Trevor and Gayle as exciting and dynamic places for children.

Here children can explore and develop in a way that challenges and supports motor skills, builds curiosity, social and emotional intelligence, encourages active and passive play and caters to their varying moods and needs.

This is where “Playing is Learning for Life” - children naturally become curious and begin creative exploring in a natural environment that is safe and supported.

Gayle has created a culture of fun that also invites critical thinking, reflection and inquiry. TG’s Child Care’s unique and inspirational curriculums support children to be involved in an inclusive play and enquiry-based learning environment that promotes competence, independence and exploration.
