At CatholicCare Early Learning Centre children are at the heart of all we do. We believe that supporting children in their early education sets the foundation for a life-long love for learning and opens up positive pathways throughout life. We are guided by our Mission, Vision and Values

We value the uniqueness of each child and take a holistic approach to developing their personal, social, physical and emotional well-being as well as intellectual aspects of learning. We prioritise working with families as we know that learning outcomes are best achieved when we work collaboratively. We provide a high quality pre-school program to ensure a seamless experience into transitioning to primary school. 

CatholicCare recognises Aboriginal people as the first people of this continent Australia and the traditional owners and custodians of the land. Our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan can be accessed here. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions form part of our program.

We celebrate cultural diversity by providing a range of opportunities for children and families to celebrate the benefits of diversity and respecting our differences.
