Why Choose Us?
Locally Family Owned and Operated
Most childcare centres today are owned by corporate entities that are listed on the stock exchange and only see your child as a means to increase the value of their shareholdings.
Discovery Tree, on the other hand, is 100% locally family owned and operated, so the people that own the centre are also the people working in the centre, working directly with families and children, getting to know each and every one at a personal level. Additionally, we constantly strive to give back and support the local community by providing the very best childcare assistance to not only Clayton, but also to the surrounding suburbs such as Keysborough, Dingley, Clayton South, Clarinda, Oakleigh South and Springvale, extending throughout the South Eastern Melbourne area.
Dedicated Educational Leader
An Educational Leaders role is to oversee the education that is being delivered within the service, this role is mandated by the department of education. Most child care centres allocate this role to an educator that is already working within the rooms and is typically only allocated 8 hours per month. Discovery Tree, on the other hand, have a dedicated Educational Leader who is provided with 15 hours per week, solely to support and mentor our educators, ensuring that we are delivering the highest standard of educational program and practices.
