  • Our Director




  • Our Centre
  • Welcome to the Hyperdome Early Education Centre and Pre-School. Our centre is a 5 minute walk from the Hyperdome Shopping Centre, located in the industrial area.

    Our aim is to provide the highest standard of care to you, the families, as well as to the children who are within our care. Our Centre celebrates diversity, welcoming families with different cultures and backgrounds.

    Our hours of operation are from 6:15am to 6:15pm. We are open Monday through to Friday, 52 weeks a year (excluding public holidays). Our Centre opened in March 1993 and caters for 169 children aged from birth to 5 years. 

    As security is one of our priorities, our Centre has a security door access system which only allows authorised parents/guardians to drop off and collect their child/ren from the Centre via a personal pin code.

    At QCCS we understand the importance of building relationships with the Aboriginal Communities by valuing their histories, cultures and their people to help build a more respecting and understanding future for all Australians. Acknowledging Country is a common practice in our services where we respect the continuing connection of Aboriginal and or Torres Strait Islander Traditional Owners and Custodians to the land on which our services stands.

    Our Team:
    Our team are qualified, friendly and caring staff who are committed to continually improving their skills and knowledge by frequently attending in-service training and seminars. All staff are required to have an up to date First Aid, CPR and Blue Card. All new employees of QCCS attend an Induction Session prior to commencing at any of our Child Care Centres; thus, ensuring they will be well equipped to step into their new role. In addition, we provide regular professional opportunities as well as monthly Centre Director and staff meetings to ensure that all our employees are up to date with industry developments.

    Our Centre aims to be at the forefront of industry developments and trends. Therefore, at QCCS your child will benefit from an array of experiences:

    • Interactive smart boards
    • Dynamic Emergent Curriculum based on the Early Years Learning Framework and Kindergarten Guidelines
    • Individual child portfolios. QCCS realises how important it is to be kept informed on your child’s progress and daily activities.
    • Healthy nutritious meals including breakfast, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
    • Sun Safety is a priority with a large percentage of the playgrounds covered with artificial and natural shade. Each Centre aims to avoid sun exposure between 9am-3pm to give the children that added level of sun protection.
    • Transition to school programs along with transition statements
    • Optional nappy service for children 2 years and under

    Sustainability Focus:
    Our Centres are passionate about teaching sustainable behaviours, instilling the knowledge and values that help support sustainable environments. Just some of the sustainable practices that you can expect to see in our services include:

    • Educating our children in the use of compost systems within their rooms
    • Child tended vegetable and herb gardens, sharing our harvest with families and children
    • Appointment of our children to monitor the electricity and water use within our centre
    • Use of recycled materials in our art and craft activities
    • Use of donated items by our local communities and businesses
    • Use of equipment made from recycled materials
  • Our Program
  • We are committed to the implementation of the National Early Years Learning Framework and operate an Emergent Curriculum. Our program is based on the individual needs of the children in our care. Our program is balanced and developmentally appropriate. It has variations, providing for a wide range of individual experiences. These experiences give the children the opportunity to make choices and take on new challenges. Our centre programs are based on the individual child, thus ensuring it does not exclude any one child. Our goal is to inspire delight, curiosity, and inquiry in the classroom. We are very proud to offer the below to all our families at no additional costs:



    Kindergarten Program
    Our Centre is pleased to be operating a Queensland Government approved Kindergarten Program with a qualified Early Childhood Teacher. This program is aimed at preparing our pre-prep children for primary school. Our Centre implements the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline and focuses on building upon children’s learning and development including literacy and numeracy skills as well as exploring the foundations of mathematics and science. We are committed to developing and building on community partnerships with local schools, Teachers and families to ensure children are being well prepared for their school years.

    Families with eligible children attending an approved Kindergarten Program may be entitled to a QKFS Plus Kindy Support Subsidy to assist with the out of pocket expenses of attending the program. To be eligible, families must either:

    • Hold a current Health Care Card, Veterans Affairs Card or Australian Government Pension Concession Card 
    • Identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Island
    • Have three or more children enrolled in the same year (must be the same age)

    Your Centre Director can provide you with further information regarding this subsidy.

    Early Learning Languages Australia (ELLA)
    Our centre also boasts a second language program (Japanese), we are proud participants in the Early Learning Languages Australia (ELLA) initiative. ELLA is an Australian Government initiative aimed at reviving the teaching of foreign languages in Australian schools, with the aim of significantly increasing the number of Year 12 students studying a language other than English within a decade.

    Hey Dee Ho no background

    Hey Dee Ho Music Program
    Our professional Music Program is facilitated by ‘Hey Dee Ho Educational Services’. Hey Dee Ho visits our Centre fortnightly. The program is an educational music experience where children learn the concepts of beat, rhythm, tempo, pitch and dynamics in a play-based environment. https://heydeeho.com.au/ourprograms/#music

    Exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words and is known to accelerate brain development, particularly in the areas of language acquisition. Dancing to music helps children build motor skills while allowing them to practice self-expression.

    Hey Dee Ho understands that each child has their own unique set of needs and interests. They have developed a range of activities to address the varied developmental needs of all children from birth. From relaxation and mindfulness to playing musical instruments to high energy dances, Hey Dee Ho programs engage and enhance children’s learning and fine motor development while giving them plenty of opportunity for fun.

    Little Scientists
    Our Centre is proud to be a Certified Little Scientists House. This program is run daily by demonstrating our commitment to hands-on, inquiry-based learning in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education. It is designed to recognise services and schools that promote an active learning environment, incorporating best practice elements such as inquiry-based learning, metacognition and co-construction.

    Barefoot Nursery

    Our Centre runs a ‘Barefoot Nursery’. Upon entry to the Nursery all Educators, guardians and visitors are required to remove their shoes or place a covering over them. Our babies are sensory explorers; therefore, it is important to us to keep our nursery room floors and environment clean and hygienic. The exceptional cleanliness of the ‘Barefoot Nursery’ concept allows our infants to freely investigate their surroundings without being exposed to unnecessary germs and bacteria.

    Veggie Fun Program
    Veggie Fun for Everyone is a 12-week food literacy program run in our Kindergarten Room, created by our very own Healthy Cooking Company designed to develop a positive attitude toward vegetables in children. The Kindergarten children will be encouraged to explore vegetables, leading to positive experiences and self-directed tasting.

    Perceptual Motor Program
    Perceptual Motor Program (PMP) activities form a part of our daily routine as your child’s Educators aim to help them become physically active and promote healthy growth as well as development of bones, muscles, flexibility, balance, posture and cardiovascular fitness. It can also help establish connections between different parts of the brain that develop memory and language.

    Swimming Program
    Hyperdome Early Education Centre has partnered with a local swim centre to provide swimming lessons for children aged 3 to 5 years. The aim of swimming lessons is to teach children how to be safe in and around water. The program runs weekly, all year round, in 5-week blocks and taught by fully qualified swimming instructors.

  • Healthy Eating
  • Healthy Cooking Company Pty Ltd_Final_23082012 copy

    We believe food ingredients should come from the kitchen, not from a lab. From this belief came the inspiration to open our own production kitchen, the Healthy Cooking Company. We aim to create and promote natural and wholesome food with a number of health benefits:

    • Organic baby food
    • Preservative Free
    • No artificial flavours
    • Low in sodium & refined sugar
    • Naturally sweetened with honey

    We promise that our nutrition labels will be free of numbers, so there will be no need to decipher nasty food additives. We are dedicated to providing delicious food that your children will love. Parents can rest assured that their little ones are being provided with a good start with healthy, nutritious morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea meals provided.

    As Educators, we believe in teaching children that physical activity can be fun as well as good for our bodies and minds. As a result we coordinate exciting exercise programs within our centres that have been developed by our Sports Dietitian in consultation with Primary School Physical Education Teachers. We want the children in our care to experience the numerous health benefits that regular physical activity can provide such as:

    • Stronger muscles and bones
    • Long term positive attitude towards exercise
    • Reduction in the likelihood of becoming overweight
    • Reduction in the likelihood of developing illnesses and diseases

    Through this we aim to incorporate at least three hours of physical activity each day into our room routines and programs with:

    • Morning physical activity routine
    • General indoor physical activity
    • Outdoor experiences

    Could not recommend this centre enough for being a safe space for my son but to also knowing him and seeing as an individual. He's not the easiest to deal with but communication and support from all stuff has never been a down fall. I appreciate each and everyone one of you Ladies. ❤️

    My daughter has been going to this centre since she was 8 months old and I have never been more then happy and comfortable with my child attending this centre. The educators are always caring and encouraging to my daughter and other children. The management team have always been kind and helpful whenever needed. I highly recommend this centre to everyone in the Logan area.

    If you are looking for consistent carers and center supervisors, this is not the centre for you.My child had been in attendance for after school care, 2 days a week from 2018, until this last term. In that time, there has been numerous carers through the schoolies room along with continuous changes to nominated supervisors. Some of these ladies have been beyond fantastic, however others very much not up to the task.Final straw is the most recent staff change. Whilst my child has additional needs, we had been happy with the care provided until now for these couple of days a week. The current staff are incapable of managing a child who is not neuro typical. My child escaped from the center grounds. This has not happened previous to this staff change. All blame for the situation put onto a 9 year old, no reflection as to why or how it occurred.

    Very disappointing. I used the Woodlands Early Education Centre for my daughter from when she was 5 months old until School aged and it was fantastic. I needed before and after school care one day a week so I enrolled her at Hyperdome early education Centre, I cancelled her enrollment after two sessions. My log in details and door pin was never activated, spoken to poorly and ignored by staff and on her last day I got a call from the school to ask who was picking my child up when its supposed to be HEEC. Very happy to be leaving.

    Fabulous centre!! Would highly recommend for families. We have two children and they both love it here. The staff are amazing and very accommodating. The centre is very clean and lots of stuff for the kids to do. We even get daily updates and photos of what they have been up to.

    Being a first time mum, the thought of returning to work and leaving my precious bundle in the care of others was a daunting one. I knew it would take a lot to make me feel comfortable.After inspecting several daycare Centre’s, we met with Kym to check the place out and were very impressed with how thorough Kym was and the high level of attention to detail, we decided to go with the Hyperdome Childcare.Always greeted with a big smile from all the staff when we arrive, it’s easy to see they all genuinely enjoy their jobs and this shines through. Whilst my daughter has only been attending the Centre for a short while I can already see how comfortable she is in the room. The support from all the staff has made it a pretty smooth transition for both myself and my daughter settled into the ‘tweenies’ Room.All the communications and updates on the app and email are fantastic and being kept up to date with what my daughter has been up to during the day are a really nice touch.My husband and I are very happy with the decision we made to send our daughter here and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

    Being a first time Mum, I was apprehensive about my son starting childcare. I had decided to apply early to ensure that he had a place for when I returned to work and settled on Hyperdome Early Education Centre after a discussion with one of the staff at an information stand set up at the Hyperdome Shopping Centre. The childcare worker was extremely informative and I was very impressed about the activities undertaken with the children and the involvement of The Healthy Cooking Company providing healthy, organic meals to the children.Fast forward 10 months and my son and I began ‘orientation’ at the centre where by for 4 weeks prior to commencement, we were able to come down to the centre for a few hours per week to sit in the Tweenies room, to meet the carers, participate in activities and meal times and ensure that my son could begin to feel comfortable at the centre. The carers were always happy to answer any question I had and would go out of their way to make both my son and I feel welcome. Carers would stop for a quick chat to introduce themselves, describing their role at the centre and answering any additional questions I may have had. The centre supervisor was exceptionally helpful in sorting out my son’s enrolment, talking me through administrative processes and orienting me with pick-up and drop-off procedures.Now that I have returned to work, I feel confident in knowing that my son is well looked after. He has settled in with the other children and loves his days at the centre. The staff continue to be helpful and supportive and we are so glad that we chose Hyperdome Early Education Centre for something as important as his early childhood care.

    I have a 1 year old and a 7 year old who attend the Hyperdome Early Education Centre.My 7 year old loves coming here every morning and afternoon for before and after school care. He is always happy and looked after well. The communication from his educators is fantastic and they are always very supportive. My son trusts his educators and feels at ease to approach them and talk to them and ask for help.My 1 year old always has a very big smile on his face as soon as we walk through the doors. He is well looked after and when I provide instructions on certain things, they are always followed. The communication from his educators is fantastic. I am always kept up to date with what is happening by the daily email updates and via phone.Kym, the Supervisor of the centre runs a very tight ship and it shows. She is amazing with how she ensures everyone and everything is running smoothly. She is very approachable and will always assist as much as she can. I have recently become a single mother and she has been a great support and very understanding of the upheaval my little family has had. I have experienced other centres and none of them compare to how great the Hyperdome Early Education Centre is
