Merriwa Early Learning Centre

Nature-based play areas and learning activities encourage children at our Merriwa Early Learning Centre to explore, get creative with their play, challenge themselves and their limits.

We pride ourselves on providing a safe and secure setting for children, where families feel valued for their uniqueness and are respected and involved. Our highly qualified and experienced educational team provide a flexible, responsive and engaging learning environment tailored to each child’s individual needs. 

Children of all ages have access to beautifully designed outdoor play areas boasting natural elements of wood, grass and trees. These spaces in our Merriwa child care centre were designed to engage children, and all their senses, in creative play.

Through our programs we enable children to build an understanding of themselves, their community and the world around them. This includes teaching them about environmental sustainability, recognising the unique role of Australia’s First Peoples and celebrating multicultural Australia.

We want to support our families and those throughout the community through hosting workshops through the year, including First Aid, parenting workshops and our free Bubs Playgroup so parents can connect with each other.

Manager

Catherine

I love children and enjoy watching them grow and learn every day. 

Helping them to become confident little people and learners is one of the main reasons I chose this career.

Working in the early years sector allows me to get to know our future generations and help them learn and achieve their goals.

As Centre Manager and an educator, I am passionate about creating a holistic environment for children and giving them the tools and opportunities to reach their potential while having fun.

I achieved my diploma in early childhood education and care in Ireland and have worked in the sector for about 12 years in Ireland and Australia.

When I first started at MercyCare Merriwa Early Learning Centre I was openly welcomed. It instantly felt like home; the children, families and staff were so welcoming.

It’s a close-knit centre that has amazing relationships with the families that attend.

I love the way we open our doors to the local community through activities like our Bubs Playgroup.

Beautiful centre, friendly, supportive and consistent staff in the rooms. They are genuine and listen to every detail about my child and what he needs and nothing is ever too hard.

MercyCare Merriwa is an amazing early learning centre! I viewed a few day cares for my three year old and went with my gut and chose MercyCare. The centre itself has a very small close-knit team, is exceptionally clean with great facilities for the children and has a calm and positive feel from the moment you walk in. One of my favourite parts of the centre is their Xplor app, where I get continuous daily updates on my sons eating/napping/activities as well as photos and videos. I LOVE it!! I’m so happy I get to see him enjoying his day whilst I’m at work.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Thank you to all the girls in the baby room, you have made the daunting feeling of leaving your child such a pleasant experience.
The loving updates throughout the day with her big smile gives me so much happiness to know I can get all my uni work done and not have the Mum guilt because I know she’s in the best hands. I love the bond she has created with each-and-every one of you.

I’d just like to say a big thank you to the centre. You know when a child is happy at his daycare when he asks on holidays if he can go back to daycare soon!
Preston also tells me he would like to invite all his teachers to his birthday party, you ladies are like family to him. Thank you for all your hard work, I know it’s not easy some days, but you all put in so much effort and keep smiling no matter what.

The baby room educators are always so welcoming, making the effort to put children at ease as soon as they arrive. They take on any update I provide regarding my child and incorporate it straight away into the work they do – which makes things much easier for his transition between daycare and home. Nothing is ever too much, they are all so willing to help.
