Woodland Early Learning Centre

Be one of the first families to experience high quality early learning at the brand new Woodland Early Learning Centre 

This state-of-the-art new kindergarten is co-located with St Thomas More Primary School. At the heart of this facility is the belief that each child is a competent learner from birth. The kindergarten’s team of nurturing and experienced educators deliver high quality and inclusive three and four-year-old kindergarten programs that help each child realise their potential. Educators will partner with you – your child’s most important educator – to develop a play-based learning program that encourages your child to expand their emerging interests and abilities through planned and spontaneous learning experiences. In turn, your child will develop vital social, emotional, physical, language and cognitive skills. Even more importantly, educators will ensure your child is safe, secure and happy while in our centre.
