Featuring state of the art facilities and a fully resourced service, Larapinta Child and Family Early Learning Centre opened in early 2017 and offers a premium standard of care to children from birth to six.
We plan stimulating indoor and outdoor environments based on play, children’s strengths and interests that support all aspects of children’s learning and provoke exploration, intrigue and discovery as this promotes opportunities for sustained and collaborative learning. We work in partnerships with children, families and the community to develop and plan a curriculum that supports a child’s sense of belonging, being and becoming. Families are supported to provide their individual contributions and personal experiences as we recognise that good practice in early childhood education and care incorporates these contributions and experiences to develop inclusive care practices and play environments and build our cultural competence. We are responsive to children needs and initiate positive engagement with their family to develop trust and respect to strengthen collaborative relationships. We recognise the importance in working in partnerships with families and that this enhances better outcomes for their children.
Co-located on the grounds of Larapinta Primary School, our Early Learning Centre aims to showcase successful integrated service delivery. Featuring light and spacious rooms and a stimulating and engaging outdoor play space, children love spending time with our qualified and experienced educators.
