Our School - Early Learning Centre

Our purpose built Early Learning Centre, which opened in 2013, offers a warm and welcoming environment for young children and their families. We run a funded four year old kindergarten program, a three year old kindergarten program and a playgroup coordinated by ELC staff.
Our highly qualified and experienced staff plan for children’s individual needs and interests while providing a nurturing environment where children feel, safe and happy to play, learn and explore. While our staff have extensive experience of working with children with additional needs our programs are open to all children.
In 2014 our centre was assess by the DEECD Quality Assessment and Rating Team and received a high rating of EXCEEDING National Quality Standards.
