Wonderland was established in 2006 by ambitious and caring family. The owners Betty and Phil have invested their energy, time, effort, love and financial resources to make Wonderland a true wonderland for children, families, and educators.
Having been in the industry for 15 years the centre has seen quite a change. In 2014 major renovations took place and centre expanded to welcome 77 children per day. Now Wonderland has turned into a melting pot of cultures where families can come together and feel included and welcomed no matter the cultural background or language being spoken at their homes. Child rearing practices of individual families are respected and incorporated in our everyday routines.
Wonderland educators come from all different continents and contribute to the multicultural experiences provided at the Wonderland by collectively speaking over 10 different languages. It comes in really handy when your little one is just starting their journey with us and might feel unsettled at the beginning.
Families have the opportunity to participate in Wonderland’s community events throughout the year. This is a chance for all of us to come together and enjoy performances by children, and share their joy and excitement.

Our family is blessed to be a part of Wonderland Childcare & Kinder families since year 2014 until today (2021). Both my children attend this Childcare since they were 1 year old. Wonderland has brought so much happiness and joy for them both. The learning and development programs ( especially Kinder programs) that they offerred are exceptional. I could not fault anything. The programs were designed so much to promote children creativities and boost their confidence at the same time through regular show and tell, various art and craft activites, gardening activites, sports, dancing, baking and so on. The most outstanding programs that were offerred recently were: 1. introducing children to various Public servants who serve communities, getting them to be familiar with whats happening in the world ( e.g police visit, library incursion, dentist visit, NAIDOC week, chinese dragon boat festival, and so on); 2. Encourage children to work together as a team from collating ideas through to design and decorate Kinder room; and 3. introducing LOTE ( learning language other than english – Mandarin) by a qualified teacher. All of these activities were designed to prepare children to be ready for going into Primary School. The facility itself is amazing, clean and safe, supported by experienced and long-serving educators. Management staff are very flexible and accomodating to the needs of parents. The proximity of Wonderland to Doncaster Park and Ride bus station is another plus plus for parents who commute to work by bus.
Teachers and all the staff are nice and easy to approach, the facility is clean and there are lots of toys and stuff for kids to play with.
Both of my girls love coming to Wonderland. The centre is bigger than others in the area and this have let them enjoy several activities like dress-ups, painting, gardening and outdoor play. They are well loved by the staff and are growing up as very social and caring individuals.
To the wonderful staff and Wonderland Childcare and Kinder, our family is ever so grateful for the love and care the centre has provided to our boys. We have been lucky enough to have grown with the centre. The professionalism and care shown by the staff puts us as parents at ease when we drop off our children. The ongoing feedback, communication with my husband and I has helped us immensely in helping our children grow outside of the centre. You believe in working ‘together’ to bring the best out of our children. We have thoroughly appreciated their support and advice to us as parents.
