About Us

Welcome to Scallywags

Here at Scallywags we pride ourselves on having a unique early childhood setting where we offer a personal and quality educational and care program. Our trusted educators and centre director look forward to working in partnership with you and your child to create enjoyable experiences and memories.

Our Centre

Often referred to as the centre with the dinosaurs in the yard, Scallywags has been owned and operated by the same local family for over 20 years. During this time, children and families have been greeted by a consistent and highly qualified educational team who we consider to be the centre’s most valuable resource.

Our spacious, air-conditioned rooms offer a wide variety of resources that children self-select from. Community play (home corner), construction, library (books), art and nature resources are readily available in all age groups.

Our yards are equally spacious and offer children the opportunity to be challenged and experience risk taking in a controlled environment.

Our Government Approved Kindergarten Program runs during Queensland school terms and offers children access to a qualified teacher in the year prior to Prep.

A free bus service is available to families in need of assistance in transporting their children to and from the centre. Please discuss these needs with the centre director.

Our Rooms

At Scallywags we provide early learning education and care for children between 6 months and school age. Our roster ensures that your child has familiar educators each morning and evening.
