Rugratz Retreat Early Learning Centre is an outstanding child care and early learning centre in Blackburn, VIC. We provide long day care in a secure and comforting environment where young children are nurtured through our nursery, toddler, kinder and preschool programs by our exceedingly caring and highly-qualified educators.

Children at Rugratz Retreat Early Learning Centre have open access to bright, custom-designed spaces, structures and experiences with plenty of room for growing, inquisitive and energetic bodies to play, relax or quietly explore.

We invite you to tour our centre to learn more about our high-quality curriculum and reggio-inspired early learning environments.

Children are given the opportunity to choose different indoor and outdoor play experiences at their leisure, learning and developing by interacting with children of all ages. Inside, we offer three rooms with a range of educational experiences based on the children’s interests. Outside, our living and growing outdoor space allows the children to get their hands dirty by planting seeds and tending to our vegetable garden. Many of the healthy, delicious meals prepared by our on-site cook include ingredients from this garden.

Our educators show care and attention to each and every family at our centre, keeping them informed, answering questions, and sharing family milestones. Our nurturing, supportive culture provides families with a sense of confidence that their child is in excellent hands.
