Embracia Childcare and Kindergarten
Embracia Childcare and Kindergarten is located on the Old Kyneton Hospital site. The childcare centre marks the initial phase of Embracia Victoria’s visionary plan to establish an an aged care home, restaurant, café, education facilities, shared office space and function space on the site. Embracia are a member of the Australian Childcare Alliance.
Our educators create an environment for our children that emulates an enchanting oasis. Our childcare educators focus on supporting your child to thrive in all areas of their physical and mental wellbeing as well as their personal development.
Embracia Childcare and Kindergarten will be a unique environment with Embracia Aged Care, co-located on the Old Kyneton Hospital site. This environment, with both aged care and child care on the same site, will allow intergenerational play sessions between the residents of Embracia Aged Care and the children at Embracia Childcare and Kindergarten. The Intergenerational Program has been developed following studies that found that intergenerational play improves self-esteem and helps develop social skills and friendships. The elderly residents living in our facilities have an abundance of time to share with our children, and we find the benefits of the Intergenerational Programs are long lasting for everyone involved.
