Welcome to Rochedale Early Learning Centre

Rochedale Early Learning Centre is a warm, inviting, safe and stimulating home away from home where your child is welcomed with open arms. When children come to stay with us for occasional care, full day care or half day care, they love exploring the bright, colourful, and inviting rooms and indoor/outdoor play spaces.

At Rochedale Early Learning Centre, we focus on play-based learning, where children are encouraged to explore and develop their skills in whatever way they feel most drawn to. Our Kindergarten Program is approved under the State Government’s Kindergarten Funding Scheme, and we promote the Early Years Learning Framework.

We recognise that young children have a need to feel secure, which is why we work hard to ensure that every child feels like family when they are here with us. We make an enduring commitment to get to know you and your child, and we take genuine joy from being part of their care each day.

Your child is guaranteed a range of planned, spontaneous, fun, focused, indoor, outdoor, and engaging play every day they spend with us. We see that children thrive when they are playing, which is why we focus on play-based learning, offering rich and stimulating opportunities where children are encouraged to explore, and most of all, to have fun.
