From the moment children are born, they begin a lifelong adventure of learning and discovery. The Early Learners’ Centre at St Peter’s Girls’ School is the perfect place for girls and boys to discover the unexpected, explore their senses and be a part of a community of lifelong learners.

About our ELC

Situated on Hallett Road, Stonyfell, the St Peter’s Girls’ Early Learners’ Centre is surrounded by Ferguson Park and is the ideal place for your son or daughter to develop a passion for lifelong learning. The centre is a licensed long day care facility, so families are able to access Government childcare rebates.

With an innovative purpose-built extension now complete, the new design features fantastic outdoor play spaces as well as inspiring rooms specially designed for children aged 2 – 4 years.

Our team of quality educators is dedicated to ensure your child not only gets the best start in life, but is also welcomed to into the wider St Peter’s Girls’ School community.

When you enter our ELC, you feel an amazing sense of belonging and it is this connection that enables our young learners to thrive. Our facilities and gardens have been specifically designed to open your child’s unlimited potential. Together, our educators, children and families become a vibrant community of learners.

We ensure your child’s crucial early years are those in which their natural curiosity is fostered, and their knowledge and understanding of concepts is enhanced through play, the arts, and the exploration of the world around them.

Our service

The ELC is open 50 weeks of the year; 7:30am – 6pm. We are a fully registered national long day care centre, offering families the very best start for their children. Families can access both the Child Care Rebate (non-means tested) and the Child Care Benefit (means tested), making childcare more affordable.

    Eloise, Year 11

  • As a learner, I want to know more

    Emma, Year 8

  • Good results come from hard work, commitment (on both the teacher’s and students’ behalf) and the establishment of positive relationships between the teacher and the students. Mutual understanding and respect are key.
