Where Children Explore, Learn and Thrive in a Nurturing Environment
SELECTING AN EARLY LEARNING CENTRE FOR YOUR CHILD CAN COME WITH OTHER CHANGES, SUCH AS A RETURN TO WORK BY THE PRIMARY CAREGIVER. AT HERITAGE COLLEGE EARLY LEARNING CENTRE, OUR TEAM UNDERSTANDS THAT MOVING INTO THE EARLY YEARS OF LEARNING CAN BE FILLED WITH MANY QUESTIONS. OUR CARING STAFF ARE ON HAND TO PROVIDE SUPPORT AND ASSISTANCE THROUGH THE EARLY YEARS’ JOURNEY.
We focus on holistic development, combining physical, social, emotional, cognitive and spiritual learning. Educators encourage creativity and exploration every day and strive to ensure each child feels supported, secure and confident.
Our educators nurture a love of learning in each child, fostering positive learning environments indoors and out. Our early learners are introduced to Christian values through our Early Encounters program. We also offer the popular Bush Kinder program, which focuses on natural play-based learning and encourages children to develop self-confidence in their abilities and curiosity about the world around them.
Children build social connections as they participate in a range of fun and inspiring
activities on-campus, and we find that the friendships developed during the early
years remain through to Primary school and beyond. As our Early Learning Centres are positioned conveniently on two campus locations, children participate in college events during the school term. Being part of a large college community means your child will enjoy opportunities at a younger age, including science, art, sport and language.
Throughout the year, children enrolled in the Early Learning programs develop school readiness skills, learning through play which provides children with vital skills required for their first year of Primary School. Located in Officer and Narre Warren South, our Centres deliver Early Learning programs with a strong connection to the Primary School.
Families also have priority placement for Prep when they are ready to move into their school journey. In partnership with Primary educators, the Step into Prep program ensures a smooth adjustment from the early years’ program into your child’s first year of Primary school and beyond.
Help your child move into Early Learning with confidence
