ABOUT OUR EARLY LEARNING SERVICE
Our beautiful education facility is open from 6:30am – 6:30pm, 5 days a week. We encourage healthy eating within our Service; we also provide morning and afternoon tea.
All our staff have or are studying Certificate III or Diploma in Children’s Services. We also have a Bachelor qualified Teacher in our Kindy room.
We aim to provide the highest level of care and education for your child in a warm, nurturing and safe environment. By creating a feeling of acceptance and sense of belonging, we provide an environment which enables each child to feel safe and secure. We are very community minded, being rural and we offer after school pick up from most primary schools in town. Our Service is a multicultural community in which our qualified educators work hard (and have lots of fun) educating and nurturing each child.
We would love to welcome you and your family to our Service.
