Our Centre


Mooroolbark is committed to providing a high quality educational program tailored to the natural development of your child. We use a collaborative approach when it comes to their needs, focusing on building better relationships with all our families, educators, local communities and most importantly - the children. 

Mooroolbark feels that by providing extraordinary education and care for early learners in a fun, respectful and safe environment, will lead children to develop at their full potential and gain greater confidence in their ability.

We offer a stimulating curriculum with the aim of building confident and active learners. Using a holistic approach to education, we combine school readiness programs with learning experiences to foster the social and emotional development of young children. 

Our integrated indoor/outdoor curriculum is child-directed and seeks to engage children in meaningful learning experiences. Our experience has found this to be the most effective method by getting them excited about learning and confident to take on their formal educational journey.
