The College’s Early Learning Centre (ELC) provides a safe, loving, and nurturing Christian learning environment for children to form friendships that will last throughout their school lives and beyond. Taught from a biblical worldview, pre-school and preparatory students learn in a safe, nurturing environment where curiosity and creativity play a vital role.
Our well qualified early childhood educators have been hand-picked because of the specific expertise and passion they bring to our team and to the children in their care. They combine an amazing ability to facilitate learning with a genuine care for each and every child. Their commitment and professionalism, coupled with their flexibility and experience create the perfect learning environment.
The program is a blend of free play, structured learning activities, and teacher instruction. We give attention to the development of social, emotional, creative, cognitive, and physical skills and provide educational activities that focus on pre-literacy and pre-numeracy skills. The program also introduces the full range of school routines, including sporting events, college assemblies, public performances, the borrowing of books from the College library, and lessons by the College’s specialist teachers.
To cater for the care needs of children outside of college times, our ELC is open Monday to Friday from 7am through to 5pm almost every week of the year. Children enjoy colourful, air-conditioned classrooms and a spacious outdoor playground.
The centre is approved for the Child Care Subsidy and fees are very reasonable. View the College's 2020 Fee Schedule.
“We have watched our twins thrive in a nurturing environment looked after by the most caring & dedicated staff members. The girls love their days at "school" and it's the best decision we ever made.”
