At Phillip Island Early Learning Centre, we view children as being inquisitive; full of curiosity and wonder. They are strong, competent, and intellectual. They are creators, imaginative thinkers and problem solvers. They are ready to learn and make sense of their world.

We take a holistic approach in our daily programs to ensure they are inclusive and child initiated and allow free flow between indoor and outdoor learning spaces, this encourages decision making and promotes your child’s sense of being.

We have a strong focus on providing a natural and aesthetically pleasing environment. Children are supported in the exploration of their natural environment, enhancing their curiosity and wonder to ensure strong foundations are created to empower them in their future learning and development.
