Welcome to MercyCare's Early Learning Centre in Merriwa!
Here's a little about us...
Located conveniently off Marmion Avenue, our 86 place centre provides care to children between the ages of six weeks to six years old.
We are a home away from home where children are encouraged to explore and discover. We understand that each child is an individual, with their own unique way of doing things, which is why we work closely with each family to better understand their specific needs. Our centre has an open door policy, and we will support our families in every way that we can.
Our modern centre hosts inspired environments, with natural open outdoor spaces with plenty of room to challenge and extend your child’s development. Our passionate and professional team of educators go above and beyond to provide a stimulating educational curriculum designed to meet the diverse needs and interests of the children in our care.

Parents at our centre also love the peace of mind that comes with the app we use to communicate with them throughout the day. Xplor provides real time updates with photos about what your child is enjoying and discovering with their friends and educators.
We also have a School Readiness Program for children aged 3+, which provides an educational, fun way to get your child ready for school. The program’s holistic approach is designed to give children the opportunity to build their confidence and independence to take the next step in their learning journey.
