Tree House Early Learning Centre – Elsternwick

Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Tree House Early Learning Centre – Elsternwick. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including a treehouse, water pumps, a creek bed, natural play structures and a range of age-specific ateliers, children are encouraged to explore and learn.

Children get out and about on regular excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We visit locations such as the local florist, post office, zoo, aged care facility and cafe for babyccinos.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays throughout the year. The community-minded team also organise a range of fundraising events for the children to be involved in.

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

Learn More About Our Centre

Tree House Early Learning Centre – Elsternwick is nestled in leafy suburbia, in a purpose built early learning facility that is designed to feel like home. The centre is filled with natural sunlight, creating a fresh and inviting environment.

We offer numerous outdoor environments that are developmentally appropriate where the children can explore and interact at their own pace, and create their own spaces. The downstairs yard is littered with trees that offer ample shade, and a lovely expansive deck joins all rooms. Opposite we have an open spacious yard that offers endless exploration in the form of sandpits, outdoor kitchen, river bed and our tree house. Above on the first floor, two natural yards offer endless fun in the form of sandpits, decking, a construction patch for digging and an outdoor kitchen. The children especially love tending to the vegetable patches they created, and having the fruits of their labour included in their daily meals.

We create balanced and nutritious meals inspired by cultures from around the world, with plenty of variety to encourage children to try new foods with their peers. Our menu is signed off by a dietician, and families are encouraged to submit their own ideas on what could be included.

Our connections with the world around us help to enhance the children’s experience. Each year we connect with the local community through fundraising activities that support key charities. We also make the transition to school that much easier through our strong connections with local schools, who allow our children to participate in fun excursions and joint projects.

Our passionate and dedicated educators keep families well informed on their child’s development, and encourage participation in our programs and feedback on how we can do things better.
