The ELC provides a beautiful space for young learners to create, explore, play, learn and discover. The centre aims to develop children’s curiosity through engaging with them in an enriching environment which stimulates and challenges them and supports them to play with ideas, hypothesise and solve problems.
Children attending the early learning centre have opportunities to engage in hands-on experiences which promote thinking and problem-solving. Educators scaffold and guide children through these learning experiences and intentionally provide challenges so children develop their knowledge, skills and attitudes to a range of topics. A safe and supportive environment is created where children can undertake risky play which develops their confidence, resilience, ability to assess danger and how to regulate their body and behaviour in various situations. Children have the time to enjoy learning and share laughter and fun times with their friends and teachers.
The Early Learning Centre provides care from 7:30am – 6:00pm, Monday to Friday. This is provided through a before and after school program offered in conjunction with a Pre-School program. On school days, the Pre-School program runs from 9.00am-3.00pm and the before school care is offered from 7:30-9:00am with after school care offered from 3:00-6:00pm. There are two groups led by qualified and experienced Early Childhood Educators. These groups are a three-year-old group and a four-year-old group.
The ELC is operated by Anglicare and the Centre Director is Alyce Hawkins.
