Give Your Child a great start to their learning

Your child is the most precious part of your life. Give them the early learning start they’ll love. With our unique “Nature Play Advantage” we believe early learning is about interacting with nature - playing, growing and learning through these interactions along with the values we know are such an important start to your child’s education.

Parents have told us they love how dedicated our staff are, each one qualified to care for your child. Plus our large nature area is a hit with both children and parents.

Facilities to inspire

Our Early Learning Centre features an outdoor environment surrounded by a thick vegetation background and an amazing growing sensory and butterfly garden are an incredible blessing/asset.

New purposely designed indoor and outdoor areas are a place for children to do what steals their heart: watching and exploring, letting curiosity take over while building trusting relationships.

An exciting learning environment has been thoughtfully planned. It invites children to enquire, experiment, hypothesise, research and investigate, led by their wonders and imagination.

  • Setting from early stages in life a different relationship with the environment, authentic and personal.

  • Discovering with their senses through daily encounters with natural events.

  • Allowing children to get a deeper and fuller understanding of the things and events that surround them.

  • The Garden, our inspiration for learning at ELC: what a fantastic investment in education for life, happiness and a better future.

Our ELC family is growing, with faith based values and passionate & dedicated staff. Why not find out more about for your child.
