Who are we?
At Community Kids Haven we are implementing the Reggio Emilia approach. The children engage in a variety of learning styles using a large range of resources from wooden blocks to loose parts. Additionally, we have a strong focus on natural elements and focus on education based around what the child displays interest in to ensure optimum engagement and advancements in their educational voyage in their early learning journey.
Community Kids Haven Redan has a large focus on a state of the art outdoor learning environments and architecturally designed yards. Our meals are prepared freshly every day with a qualified cook.

Educators and Management of CKH endeavour to provide:

We take sun protection very seriously at Community Kids Haven. Overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation causes wrinkles and skin and eye damage, ultimately leading to skin cancer.
UV cannot be seen or felt. It is not like the sun’s light which we see, or the sun’s warmth (infrared radiation) which we feel. Our senses cannot detect UV so it can be damaging without us knowing. There is a huge variation in UV levels across Australia. The UV level is affected by a number of factors including the time of day, time of year, cloud cover, altitude, proximity to the equator, scattering and reflection.
Take away the guesswork of the UV exposure each day by checking out the SunSmart UV widget. The widget shows the sun protection times closest to our centres location, making it easier than ever to be smart about your sun exposure all year.
