Choklits Child Care and Kindergarten in Ringwood
At Choklits, we believe learning is everywhere and we are committed to learning from everyone. When children attend Choklits they get the opportunity to learn and to flourish, regardless of their background. Children get to meet new friends, have fun and ready themselves for school.
Centre Director Sue Brewer leads our team of consistent educators at Choklits Ringwood and in 2022 (her 26th year at Choklits) the Herald Sun crowned Sue Melbourne’s best Child Care Worker.
Early childhood is a critical development period. We’re committed to ‘sparking the fire’ for lifelong learning in a safe, supportive and secure environment.
Choklits Child Care in Ringwood occupies a converted traditional old homestead 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.
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 everyone in the Choklits community which includes our children, team members, families and all those who visit Choklits.
In addition to the basic standard curriculum that every Child Care Centre must provide, we also include many additional incursions and excursion experiences. With age tailored sports programs, music lessons, a library excursion for our kindergarten children and yoga tuition all delivered every week, 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...
My Daughter started at Choklits at the start of this year and I could not be more happier to know she is in the safest hands. The carers at Choklits go above and beyond to ensure kids are safe, happy and constantly encouraged. Highly recommend Choklits to parents in the community as its diverse and so amazing!
A welcoming daycare that took the time to get to know not only our child but our family too. The educators have a caring nature, and helped our daughter develop great independence. Highly recommended!
I love sending my son to Choklits. He has the best time every week, he’ll come home and sing new songs to me. I have seen how much he has grown and developed by attending here and I cannot wait to send out 2nd son here too. I know they will thrive so much, and the community is amazing as well! They not only support our children but they support our family!
Choklits is the best child care one could have. My son had the whole experience, from nursery to 4 year-old kinder, and it was sad to say goodbye. As immigrants without family around, the centre was our family and the educators where always available to talk. Our diet requirements were all respected and Helen’s meal caused many disagreements at home, as my cooking “was not as good as Helen’s”.
We have been part of the wonderful Choklits family for over 2 years. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Welcoming, friendly, caring, my two kids love going and have thrived. Leaving as we are moving overseas. We will miss the Choklits community greatly.
