Adventure Patch

Adventure Patch has 40 years’ experience in developing, innovating and delivering Early Childhood Education and Care Services, encouraging children to explore, discover, play, get messy and connect with nature.
A unique and quality child care service, Adventure Patch focusses on the individual child and how they learn, while recognising that a child’s development can be enhanced if they are guided by compassionate Educators who promote play, fun and adventure.

A fundamental part of our philosophy is play.

Play is at the heart of childhood and simply the most important thing we offer children. Through play, children learn to respectfully engage with the world and the people around them. All of our services encourage fun, mess, outdoor adventure and free-spirited play. We also provide opportunities for children to engage in play in the broader community as well as within our traditional education and care services.
