Jacaranda Early Learning Centre – Sunnybank

Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Jacaranda Early Learning Centre – Sunnybank. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments – including a recently renovated outdoor space – children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled and warm centre also has herb and vegetable gardens, Australian Native stingless bees, a wooden forte, a water pump, natural play structures, and a range of age-specific ateliers.

Children get out and about on regular excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We visit various locations including Sunnybank Hills Tricare to partake in an inter generational playgroup, our local shopping centre, cafes and the library.

Offering before and after-school care, we have a dedicated centre bus that offers pickup and drop off for families who can’t drive to the centre.

With a community-minded team of Educators who have been with the centre for a long time, we are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays.

Our on-site cook prepares three nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. The children and Educators enjoy venturing into the centre’s garden to gather food to use for meals and cooking classes.
