Learn More About Our Centre

Blackburn Early Learning Centre offers a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, with an exciting outdoor learning environment that has dedicated spaces for different ages. Children under two have access to a cosy yard with a sheltered verandah and AstroTurf where learning opportunities are planned and set up based on the children’s interests.

The toddler space includes a large sandpit and cubby house, with easels fixed on the fence for children to use in various creative ways. It also has a large hanging tree which provides plenty of shade during summer. Children over three have a large space covered in AstroTurf, complete with climbing and obstacle equipment to continuously challenge children’s growing skills and abilities. There is also a cubby house and a very popular mud kitchen where children enjoy experimenting and creating.

All children have access to our unique ‘Secret Garden’, a fenced off space at the back of the centre that is filled with large trees and plants, a big sandpit and dirt pit, gazebo, and a fruit and vegetable patch created by the kindergarten children. They love picking different products from this space to include in their lunch. Our qualified cook prepares fresh and nutritious meals on-site each day, using a four week rotating menu that changes each season.

Our educators are approachable, knowledgeable and passionate about each and every child in their care. They go out of their way to create strong and trusting relationships with families, so that all children and families feel confident and supported.
