Our educational philosophy is ‘Learning through play’. Children naturally learn new skills each day simply through playing, but we also use play for structured development and education.

St Catherine’s early learning programs are based on the

early learning framework (EYLF).

For many children this will be their first time away from home and they need to feel secure in their new surroundings. We also want you, as their parents, to have peace of mind that your child is enjoying their day while you are busy with yours.


Our centre is filled with interesting materials, resources and equipment that encourages exploration and promotes your childs physical, social, emotional and cognitive development.


We value open and honest communication and recognise its importance when working with parents to support each child’s learning.


We aim to encourage each child’s independence, self-confidence and respect for self, others and property through guidance, positive reinforcement and role modelling.


The Centre is a Long Day Care Service providing Quality Care and Education for children aged 0-6 years.


We are a 73 place Centre hosting 5 rooms for age groups:


  • 6 weeks - 15 months,

  • 15 months - early two's,

  • late two's - early three's,

  • late three's - early five's.
