Our three year old program operates on Monday mornings from 9:15 to 12:00 noon and Wednesday afternoons 12:30 to 3:15pm and is $340 per term. Enrolment is through the ELC office, waiting list forms are advised.

Our four year old sessional kindergarten program enrolment is through Casey Council and is $400 per term. We have a variety of timetable options to suit families and a high level of involvement within the school.

The quality of the learning and nurturing received by the children at our ELC is fundamental to their success in later years. Learning is hands on, interactive and investigative to encourage the development of an inquiring mind.  We provide a balance of playbased learning with structured routines so children can make choices and follow their interests while learning to be part of a group. Children then gain skills and confidence to transition seamlessly to school.
