Choklits Child Care & Kindergarten
Choklits Child Care and Kindergarten in Ringwood has expanded
At Choklits, we believe learning is everywhere. Our children are our future, we believe in every one of them and we believe they all deserve the best possible start in life. When a child attends Choklits they get that start, they get the opportunity to flourish, to meet new friends and develop a lifelong love of learning. And, they get to have fun.
Choklits Child Care occupies a converted traditional old homestead in Ringwood and boasts one of the biggest natural outdoor playgrounds in Melbourne. Our huge backyard and outside areas incorporate dedicated play areas and equipment, vegetable gardens where the children grow their own crops as part of our “Plant to Plate” program, a separate nursery play yard for our babies and kindergarten specific areas for big item creative play…
Choklits Director Sue Brewer has been at Choklits Child Care Centre for over 20 years leading a consistent team of educators focused on child development. It’s our aim at Choklits to help each child develop a spirit of independence appropriate to their age and capabilities, and encourage curiosity about life. We assist children to develop high self-esteem and to learn how to initiate their own forms of learning. Sue is well known for providing practical support, information and assistance to parents on childhood development and aims to build mutual trust between all children and between the children and staff.
In addition to the basic standard curriculum that every Child Care Centre must provide, we also include many additional incursions and excursion experiences. With an age tailored sports program every Monday, music lessons every Tuesday, a library excursion for our Kindergarten children every Thursday, yoga tuition every Friday, and many more incursions and excursions throughout the year you can be sure all our early learners have fun as they begin their first stages of formal education and development.

From the Choklits Community...
Our daughter started in the nursery at Choklits when she was 10 months old and the wonderful room leader Jodi was there holding our hands through the whole transition. From amazing Chef Helen’s delicious food, to the support and advice from our lovely educator Talia on crazy pre toddler sleep routines, we couldn’t possibly be happier!! Thank you all!
From the moment we stepped in the door at Choklits it was a warm and caring environment. From having a background in Childcare I knew what I was looking for and what I wanted for our son. The carers not only took the time to get to know our then 17 month old but also us as parents which provided a great sense of community. The Choklits program offers so many enriching learning opportunities and encourages children’s sense of belonging. Our now 2 year old is thriving and has achieved so many of his milestones. With the assistance of every staff member and the continued nurture of the Choklits community he will continue to develop and enhance his social and emotional wellbeing and physical development and we could not be more thankful to all those involved 🙂
Choklits has been a mainstay of our family for the past 20+. My sister attended in the late 1990’s, and my three children have been attending since 2010. One of the main things I love about the Choklits team is the consistency of the staff, they have very low turnover, which shows that it must also be a great environment to work in. Jade has done a wonderful job with the centre, it is the best it’s ever been, and we are so sad that our time is coming to an end as our daughter heads off to School next year. I will highly recommend Choklits to everyone who asks, there are so many wonderful things to say, but the most important is the wonderful team of staff who care for our children, you really couldn’t ask for a better group of carers who support, care for and educate our children. Special mention to Sue, Tracy and Cassie who have cared for my children since they were small babes!
We recently switched to Choklits from a previous childcare provider and could not be happier with the service provided. The staff are so friendly, and caring, our kids get very excited about going each day. The sugar free menu prepared by the chef is fantastic, we are very, very happy with the move!
If Sue is educating and caring for your children, they are in the best hands, she possesses all the qualities required to teach, love and grow. Choklits is the best centre with Sue in the Director’s chair, her calm positivity to make everyone’s day the best is what makes it great
I was actually against our children going into formal education so early, but I was sold the minute I met the staff and saw the facilities at Choklits, especially the big backyard. My 2 children absolutely love being there and I can relax knowing they are learning and having fun. Not sure how the staff do it, but they actually enjoy eating the veggies and fruits they grow at the centre, I can’t get them to go near them at home!!
Choklits Child Care is an amazing Centre that caters for all families with care available from 7am till 6pm. With care from babies through to kinder kids all under the one roof. My kids are always raving about the huge outdoor play area and the adventures they have from the fort slides to the climbing frames and the race track. The educators are friendly, well trained and have a passion for what they do. With a brand new classroom and learning initiatives don’t go anywhere else without a tour of Choklits first you won’t be disappointed.
We had all of our 3 children attend Choklits over a period of 10 years. Never had a reason to contemplate using another facility. Not once were we ever concerned about the kids after drop-off. Amazing people. Amazingly big play area. Great food. Great activities. The Kinder program readied our children for school. They were well rounded little people by the time they finished at Choklits. No hesitation in recommending this facility. The children loved their carers. They loved them back
As first time parents putting our child in care was a huge decision. we looked at a number of Centres and could not go past Choklits. It’s simply a home away from home, the owner knows every child’s name and all the educators are warm and most importantly they know my child. I feel very comfortable leaving my baby at Choklits and know she is receiving the best education and care possible.
When the search began for childcare for our 6 month old daughter 5 years ago we visited over 10 centres in our area. As soon as we walked into Choklits it truly felt like home! Jade, Sue and the wonderful educators at Choklits have given our little one the best start in life! The outdoor area is amazing with so many areas for the children to play and explore! Now 5 years old, our daughter is in her Kindy year. The Kinder program is brilliant. Thank you Wei and Christine for your amazing support and education! Nothing was ever too much trouble! She especially loved music, sport and weekly visits to the library! I highly recommend checking out Choklits Child Care for your little ones!!!
