Waitara Early Learning & Care Centre Banner

Our Waitara Early Learning and Care Centre (ELCC) is a warm, friendly and welcoming environment that promotes a sense of family. Our centre places great importance on forming positive relationships and working collaboratively with families, to ensure all children in our care feel safe, secure and supported.

In partnership with families, we build secure trusting relationships with an emphasis on communication to ensure a sense of belonging. Forming trusting relationships provides a secure base for children to explore the world and learn through play. Our experienced staff deliver an age appropriate educational program that is designed to maximise each child’s learning through a play-based approach that is guided by the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).

Our purpose built centre is located on the grounds of our Waitara Family Centre. We are a 67 place long day care service.

  • We welcome children aged 6 weeks to 5 years.
  • Our operating hours are Monday to Friday 7.30am – 6.00pm.
  • We are open 50 weeks of the year.
  • We have a flexible attendance pattern.

  • We welcome children with additional needs.
  • We welcome enrolments from all members of the community regardless of your religious beliefs or the primary school your child will attend.
