Lane Cove Early Learning Centre

Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Lane Cove Early Learning Centre. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including herb and vegetable gardens, an outdoor stage, a creek bed, water play areas, and a range of age-specific ateliers, children are encouraged to explore and learn.

We are proud to have such a culturally diverse team of Educators and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays in our centre throughout the year.

Children get out and about on excursions at least twice a week, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We have two lovely parks and a library within walking distance of the centre, so all age groups join in.

Our on-site cook, Ken, prepares three nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the centre, Ken and our Educators at Lane Cove host cooking classes for the children to get involved in to enhance their understanding of good nutrition.

Our Educators

Our team of Educators are committed and passionate about ensuring your child will be safe, nurtured and cared for every day. At Guardian, children are encouraged to engage in interest-led play that creates learning and meaningful experiences.

Our Educators seek to optimise diverse learning opportunities and implement the Curriculum as framed by the Early Years Learning Framework.

Our Centres use Storypark and each family is provided with a secure login to access on their computers, mobiles or apps.

Learn More About Our Centre

Lane Cove Early Learning Centre is situated in a picturesque, traditional house that has been renovated to accommodate busy, growing bodies. Learning is enhanced by using the features of the house in creative ways, such as the beautiful wooden decking that doubles as a performance stage! There are a variety of outdoor spaces for the children to enjoy, from playing together in the sandpit to quietly exploring a book in the shaded garden.

The children enjoy playing with a variety of materials, from clay, glass and tiles to pebbles, stones, wood cuttings and tree bark. They enjoy discovering the different properties of the materials and so we incorporate them into their daily learning, like counting with pebbles or creating formations on paper using leaves and tree bark.

From visiting the local library to helping us buy vegetables from the local grocer, we want to ensure the children feel a part of the fantastic community around us. We also love welcoming special guests into the centre to teach us about sports, gardening and recycling.

Our qualified cook prepares fresh, delicious home-style meals on site. Families also have the opportunity to incorporate some of their favourite recipes into our menu.

New families are encouraged to tour the centre to learn about our daily routines and curriculum, as well as the resources we have available to help develop their child’s interests. You can also meet our enthusiastic educators who will be happy to share the approach they take to educating the children. Once your child is in our care you can keep track of their learning through their individual books, which are updated with art work, stories, letters and observations.

Families are a vital part of what makes our centre great, and they are encouraged to come in and share their hobbies with the children, teach them about their culture, or simply join in with daily experiences.
