The Anglican School Googong is pleased to announce their partnership with Anglicare to open an Early Learning Centre (ELC) in the Queanbeyan/Jerrabomberra region in 2015.
The ELC will open in January 2015 and has already received a number of applications.
Foundation Principal of The Anglican School Googong, Ian Hewitt, says the partnership will allow both organisations to actively support children to make a smooth transition from one learning environment to another.
“We hope to provide a fun and safe learning environment for all children who attend,” said Ian. “For the first time families in the local area will have the option to send their children to one school from Pre-School right through to Year 12. We hope to engage children with our learning philosophies at the start of their education journey.”
Anglicare Children’s Services Manager, Sue Jennings, says the ELC will add to Anglicare’s well-established services. Anglicare is well known for their commitment to early childhood services.
“Working with the Anglican School at Googong gives us the opportunity to provide the community with a flexible model of early childhood education where families have a choice of preschool hours to suit their lifestyle.”
Queanbeyan Mayor Tim Overall was present at the announcement and wishes the best for the venture.
