About Maroochy River

Maroochy River 1 was acquired by Rise & Shine Education™ in February 2022 and has been fully refurbished with state-of-the-art environments and spaces unique to Rise & Shine Kindergarten™. The centre follows the Rise & Shine Education™ operations and provides fully-inclusive care including all meals and the Shine Advantage™ curriculum which is embedded into everyday practice at the centre to ensure children learn and develop holistically.

Why Rise & Shine™?

Rise & Shine Education™ is a family-owned and operated business which owns and operates Rise & Shine Kindergarten™ centres. We provide exceptional care and high-quality education for children aged six weeks to six years. Our modern centres have been designed to engage young children, with indoor learning spaces and outdoor nature areas that will captivate your child’s imagination and support their growth and development.

We’ve developed our own unique curriculum to ensure your child learns & develops holistically; it’s called the Shine Advantage™ program. We know learning letters and numbers is important, but it’s only one small part of how they will grow and develop as a person. Our curriculum consists of five key elements:

We are happy and honoured to share some of the many testimonials from the hundreds of happy parents of children enrolled at Rise & Shine Kindergarten.


The best decision I have made is sending my son to Rise & Shine Kindergarten Maroochy River.

We came to R&S having been at a different centre, and the difference in the standard of care, attitude, and principles was immediately obvious. Maroochy River is warm and welcoming with friendly staff and inviting indoor and outdoor play areas.

I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and the quality of care that my son receives. Educators are supportive, professional, and compassionate. Their attention to detail and caring nature really promote an understanding of my sons’ individual needs. They value and encourage input from parents, which allows educators to adapt activities to reflect and further develop my sons’ specific interests. Communication with parents is excellent, with staff providing real-time updates and an overview each afternoon on a user-friendly app.

The strong connection the educators have established, allows my son to thrive and develop within a secure environment. The primary caregiver approach has been fantastic for building genuine relationships and trust, as a parent this gives me reassurance that my son will feel safe and grow into a confident toddler within this supportive setting. 

We’re so thrilled to have found Rise & Shine! Thank you for everything you all do for our little family, we truly are grateful for the dedication and support of the Rise & Shine community!
