When your child feels safe, secure and nurtured, the magic of learning can happen.
The power of play
Overwhelming research shows the best way to learn is through play.
Our play-based approach is based on the Early Years Learning Framework, and our passionate educators use play to develop communication, language, social and emotional skills.
We focus on children belonging, being and becoming, encouraging their individual strengths and interests along the way.
Connection and understanding
Through our programs we support your children with an understanding of themselves, their community and the world around them.
This includes teaching them about the environment, being involved in nature, recognising the unique role of Australia’s First Peoples and celebrating multicultural Australia.
Our centres ensure your children receive a rich variety of experiences, which are fun, engaging and educational, building their confidence and independence as they grow, develop and find their space in the world.
We have been able to leverage the benefits of our different services through our leading intergenerational program.
Our aged care residents visit our early learning centres, and vice-versa, with significant benefits for all. The children get many benefits from their social experiences with seniors, and respect is built between generations.
MercyCare’s status as an early adopter of intergenerational care has been recognised under a partnership with Griffith University for a research program to show evidence-based benefits and best-practice.
Approved care provider
Each of our centres is regularly assessed against seven quality areas as part of the National Quality Standards.
