Child Care and Kindergarten for families in Cheltenham

Quality early childhood education and child care provides the foundation for learning for life.
Let your child’s learning story begin with us

Kids Houe Early Learning Cheltenham Logo

We believe that the value of play is of utmost importance to children as it is their way of learning about their world.  While children play they are able to experiement with new ideas, test theories and their understanding of concepts, express their creative ability, release their emotions and share their feelings.  While engaging in play children are developing across all domains and creating the building blocks for their future.

Tailored Learning and Curriculum for each age group

Baby Nursery Child Care


We partner with you to provide a safe, quality, family-centred learning environment where every child is respected and nurtured. We continually develop our skills and explore new ways to enrich your child’s early learning experience.

Child Care Toddler Room


Indoor and outdoor play based experiences are an integral part of our program. Educators plan a diverse range of experiences to create opportunities for your child in both structured and spontaneous play.

Pre Kindergarten and early Preschool


Our programs are inspired by the wisdom and teachings of early childhood theorists and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), and aim to develop children’s emotional, social and cognitive intelligence.

Kindergarten and Preschool


The Kindergarten curriculum continues to emphasise play based learning, however offers additional intentional learning times where the focus is on literacy and numeracy, socialisation, self-regulation and independence.

Cheltenham Child Care Centre manager

Welcome to our new child care and kindergarten service

Hello. My name is Melinda Mastorakos.

During my career I have had the opportunity to work with different age groups and across the variety of areas in the industry and I have developed a passion for early learning. My passion for early learning is based on a solid understanding that the first five years shape who a child will become. We have a responsibility to offer the highest quality in early education and support families along the way.

The team I am fortunate to work with shares my passion for seeing children meet their potential. They are dedicated, professional, experienced and highly qualified. We’ve created a stimulating indoor and outdoor environment to encourage children to explore and experiment. It also creates a high degree of collaboration between children, as well as their interactions with educators.

I look forward to meeting you and your family – and exploring how we can support you on your child’s early learning journey – soon.
