Early Learning Centres

Play, Learn and Discover

At CatholicCare, we believe that that learning is for life. It's a belief thats driven us since 2010, to provide early childhood support for families (including care and education). We currently have five Early Learning Centres located at Forestville, Lake Munmorah, Terrigal, Waitara, with a fifth centre at Woy Woy, opened in January 2017. 

We also provide quality care for children through Family Day Care.

Our Early Learning Centres aim to provide a service that not only meets the needs of individual children and their families but the needs of the broader community. We believe that children are both shaped by and contribute to the growth of their family, culture and community.  We respect, acknowledge and promote the significant place Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families have in Australia’s identity, actively seeking opportunities to embed cultural knowledge and understanding into our pedagogical practices and environments.
