Quality Child Care Centres in Toowoomba

Our early childhood centres are the leading facilities for families needing child care close to Darling Heights, South Toowoomba, Harristown, Westbrook and surrounding areas. As childcare educators, we aim to tap into your child’s natural desire to learn and discover the world around them. We understand that we are privileged to be a part of this special time where they are constantly learning and absorbing information from their surroundings and so always do our best to provide the most nurturing environment possible in our Montessori child care centres.

With a passion for educating children, our mission is to guide your child’s emotional, intellectual and physical development. We let them move and learn at their own pace, as they discover new things through natural exploration and discovery. Choose A Country Garden and our childcare to foster your child’s development today and ensure your child has a supportive and positive learning experience.

Discover a love of learning in our Montessori daycare early childhood centres

With over 20 years of experience, we are the experts in early childhood education. Founder Carol Keutmann completed a Bachelor in Early Childhood Education in Melbourne and then went on to teach children in the preparatory years. After raising her own family, she was inspired to open her own child care centre and this dream became a reality when A Country Garden was finally opened.

We aim to create a home-like environment so children feel comfortable in our early learning centres and are encouraged to learn and discover. Learn more about us and our story here. Unlock your child’s full potential today and consider A Country Garden early childhood centres. We offer childcare services to a myriad of age groups, from 6 weeks to 5 years.
