Playful Explorations Await at Una Daycare and Kindergarten

Childcare Gladstone

Our Glen Eden child care centre located in Gladstone is surrounded by towering trees, giving your little ones the opportunity to experience nature-based indoor and outdoor play. Connecting children with nature, the community, and their families is essential for their development.

We provide opportunities for your little ones to explore, create, move their bodies, and engage their senses with the natural world.

From Tiny Steps to Giant Leaps: Our Programs Unfold Every Stage of Development

We cater to children aged six weeks to five years old and have programs tailored specifically for each age group. We nurture their growing minds through a balanced mix of child-led discovery, intentional teaching interactions, and evidence-based education. Our centre is divided into areas designed for different developmental stages.

The Nursery

6-Weeks to 15-Months

Our nursery meets the unique needs of infants, with the understanding that transitioning into a daycare setting is a significant change for both the baby and their family.

We prioritise forming deep, meaningful connections with each infant and their families, ensuring a sense of belonging and security. Our educators are dedicated to creating a nurturing and collaborative environment that mirrors the continuity between home and care settings, allowing babies to thrive and develop in both spaces.


15-Months to 2-Years

Our toddler environment fosters a nurturing and supportive setting where this curious age group can confidently explore the world with wonder. Our philosophy centres on believing toddlers flourish with familiar educators and consistent routines, leading to positive and predictable outcomes.

We are dedicated to nurturing each toddler’s unique personality and creating spaces for individual exploration and play-based learning. We encourage emerging independence, self-help skills, and emotional resilience and recognise each toddler as an individual.

Junior Kindy

2-Years to 3-Years

In our junior kindergarten classroom, your children are journeying to enhance their confidence, resilience, and empathy within a secure and encouraging setting. Embracing mess and risk-taking, we provide opportunities for our little explorers to delve into the natural world.

We support each child in developing a rhythm throughout the year, nurturing their innate curiosity while fostering independent play. Our passionate educators instill a deep appreciation for nature, engaging children in our Forest School and Animal Programs. These interactions are about gaining knowledge and sharing a love for the world around us.

Senior Kindy

3-Years to 4-Years

In our senior kindy classroom, we draw inspiration from the Reggio Emilia approach, a renowned educational philosophy emphasising child-led learning. Our curriculum is built on the foundation that children are natural constructors of the knowledge gained through investigation, exploration, discovery, and play.

We value each child at our Early Learning Gladstone Centre as a capable, competent, creative learner whose world is shaped through play and interactions. Using imagination and providing natural resources to unleash their curiosity is an essential part of our program to nurture the holistic well-being of each child.


4-Years to 5-Years

Our primary goal is to seamlessly prepare 4 and 5-year-olds for their next significant educational milestone – the transition to formal schooling. Our kindergarten program is fully accredited, aligning with the Queensland Kindergarten Guidelines and the Early Years Framework.

We adopt a comprehensive and individualised approach to each kindergartener’s development. Our educators meticulously plan activities that promote holistic growth across five key areas: identity, connectedness, well-being, active learning, and communication, laying a solid foundation for each kindergartener’s future educational journey.
