Balmain Cove Early Learning Centre

Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Balmain Cove Early Learning Centre. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including herb gardens, worm farms, a large veranda, natural play structures and a range of age-specific ateliers, children are encouraged to explore and learn.

We are proud to have such a culturally diverse team of Educators and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays in our centre throughout the year.

Children get out and about on weekly excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. Most children enjoy a smooth transition from Balmain Cove ELC to one of our many local primary schools.

Our on-site cook, who is the heart of our kitchen, prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the centre, our community-focused Educators at Balmain Cove host cooking classes for the children to get involved in to enhance their understanding of good nutrition.

Our Educators

Our team of Educators are committed and passionate about ensuring your child will be safe, nurtured and cared for every day. At Guardian, children are encouraged to engage in interest-led play that creates learning and meaningful experiences.

Our Educators seek to optimise diverse learning opportunities and implement the Curriculum as framed by the Early Years Learning Framework.

You and Your Child

All Guardian Centres provide a Centre-to-Family communication platform so families can maintain contact with their children’s experiences through photos, stories and learning outcomes.

Our Centres use Storypark and each family is provided with a secure login to access on their computers, mobiles or apps.

Learn More About Our Centre

This early learning centre is designed to replicate the comfort of a family-style environment where our educators create a warm and loving atmosphere for each and every child. Well-designed interior spaces and a large outdoor space that is full of greenery and wildlife means there is plenty of room for your children to explore and grow.

We have three rooms tailored for child-led learning as they grow and each child can enjoy indoor or outdoor play dependent on their needs and interests. We love to bring special guests and new experiences into the centre for the children to engage with and explore.

Our nursery has all the comforts of home with equipment and learning materials specific to the development and learning needs of children between 6 weeks and 12 months of age. We delight in watching your children gain confidence in what they have learnt as babies and then expand on their skills and knowledge.

Our Pre-Kinder room facilitates each child’s learning based on their interests as they discover their independence through to our Pre-School Room where children have a sense of ownership of the room and contribute to the curriculum whilst continuing their day to day routine. Our Pre-School children are encouraged to extend their thoughts about the world around them and encourages them to question, explore and discover. This room also offers children an interactive school readiness program which incorporates computer literacy and project work.
