Uniting Early Learning

We know that children learn best while they're playing, so we're passionate about making learning exciting. We create imaginative, caring and playful learning experiences that inspire children to build positive relationships and skills for life.

Programs supported by Volunteers

Kindergarten

Nurturing confident and creative learners

Kindergarten should be a joyous experience filled with laughter, learning and exciting discoveries while preparing 3 and 4 year olds for their first year at school.

Your child will explore their sense of self and creativity in environments that are rich in art, music, numbers, and language.

Our structured learning environments pave the path to school by encouraging children to engage with their surroundings, respect other cultures, express themselves and connect with others.
