About MindChamps Early Learning & PreSchool

MindChamps @ Wheeler Heights is a home away from home. The cosy centre nestled just 10 minutes from the beach takes on a vibrance of it’s own. Relationships are at the forefront of our Wheeler Heights childcare centre, with a focus on creating strong bonds with families and Champs. For a community childcare feel with the backing of the MindChamps philosophy, you can’t go past the wonderful team at Wheeler Heights Early Learning & PreSchool.


What’s on

This unique service has a team of educators who have crossed paths before, all finding themselves drawn to the MindChamps philosophy. Having worked so closely the team have strong bonds making this Wheeler Heights preschool feel like more of a community than a childcare centre. Small class sizes mean that every Champ is supported and respected as an individual.

Meet Our Director – Kaycee

Kaycee began her early childhood journey, starting out by hosting children’s birthday parties which fostered her love for creativity and drama. After finishing school she was then able to dive into a long daycare centre and persue her studies through a traineeship. Kaycee has educated with all age groups and worked her way from trainee to Room Leading, Ed Leader, 2IC and Directing. Here at Wheeler Heights she is proud of the community that has been built with the families and educators, where she can share her passion for early education and care.

Our Learning Programmes

Our MindChamps programmes are based in Australian research and were created for the children of the 21st century. Using Crafted Play, our Wheeler Heights Champs engage in a variety of structured and child led learning experiences. Our environment is split into 6 distinct learning zones, created with the children to reflect their learning.

Early Learning

When young Champs are given the opportunity to guide their own experiences, they become excited about education. Our learning programme embraces the Champs’ interests and skills, utilising the learning potential in everyday activities. Utilising Sensory, Motor, Intellectual, Linguistic, Emotional and Social aspects of play, we teach our Champs about themselves and their place in the world around them.

Preschool Curriculum

In addition to our early learning programmes, our preschool curriculum incorporates the MindChamps break through Reading Programme. Through theatrical strategies, our reading programme has been developed by experts to encourage a love of reading and storytelling. With Australia’s low early literacy rates, we are barracking back to foster a connection with the written word which will benefit our Champs for the rest of their lives.

The 3-Minds Approach

Just as the Froebel and Montessori approaches were developed in the 19th century and the “Thinking Curriculum” of the Waldorf-Steiner and Reggio Emilia methods were products of the 20th century, the MindChamps Early Learning & PreSchool’s 3-Mind Approach is the education model developed for the 21st century. Our unique pedagogy is based on The Champion, Learning and Creative Minds.

The Champion Mind teaches children resilience and the ability to overcome adversity and thrive.
The Learning Mind concentrates on teaching children HOW to learn and not WHAT to learn.
The Creative Mind nurtures our Champs abilities to think outside of the box and see the world from multiple perspectives.

Combined, our Champs are equipped with the tools they need to flourish in the unknown future that lies ahead.
