The Early Learning Centre caters for children from the ages of 15 months to 5 years in a caring Christian environment. The Early Learning Centre is open 50 weeks of the year from 7:00am to 6:00pm Monday to Friday. It is closed for two weeks over the Christmas and New Year break.

All places are subject to a $50 confirmation fee per child, which is payable to secure your place. The deposit is not refundable and goes towards their first weeks fees. If you withdraw from the program you will need to give at least 2 weeks’ notice to avoid further costs. Payment must be paid at least fortnightly. Unpaid places will be made available to others on the waiting list.

*Fees are subject to review each year.
