Early Learning Centre
Completed in early 2016 as an architecturally designed, purpose built facility, Covenant’s Early Learning Centre caters to preschool-aged children (4-5 year olds).
Open 50 weeks per year from 7am – 6pm, the Centre is approved for the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR) for eligible families, with flexible bookings available. Parents may select the Preschool Program only (9am – 3pm) or Long Day Care options, including Vacation Care.
The Preschool program is run by our dedicated Christian staff, and the out-of-school hours care will be provided by Camp Australia from 2018.
The unique feature of Covenant’s preschool curriculum is that it delivers the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) with a core Bible curriculum which forms the central trunk from which the various activities stem.
Our staff, all committed Christians, love to share with the children the joy and wonder of God’s world and Word as they lay a solid preparation for the Primary years.
Mum to 2 children and with many years of experience in Early Childhood Education, Hannah is our lead preschool teacher and runs Session A (Mon-Wed).
With a Masters in Education and a Masters of Teaching, Yanni has been working in Early Childhood Education since 2011. She runs Session B (Wed-Fri). Yanni is bilingual (Chinese / English).
Mum to 3 children, with a Certificate III in Early Childhood Education & Care, Christine is a Learning Support Assistant (Mon-Fri).
