What Makes Us Special?

 

Marymede Early Learning Centre prides itself on not only providing children with an enjoyable and enriching Kindergarten education, but also preparing students adequately for their ensuing Primary education. We understand that all stages of education are important but in particular the early transition years, as they can place extra challenges on students and their families. 

In addition to the Centre’s contemporary indoor and outdoor learning space, we offer children a unique opportunity to access the facilities, resources and specialist learning areas of Marymede Catholic College. This enables our children to experience the contemporary resources of a P-12 school including a Resource Centre, Fitness Centre, Art Laboratories and sporting fields.

The Educators at Marymede Early Learning Centre work closely with the Prep Teaching Team at Marymede Catholic College to ensure that children complete their kindergarten year with the skills and dispositions necessary to be school-ready and best placed to start their primary school experience.

Our Centre Educators actively collaborate with experienced learning and teaching staff from Marymede Catholic College on a regular basis, working to achieve the best possible learning outcomes for each child. In addition to this, the Centre is supported by Occupational Therapists, Speech Pathologists, Psychologists and other learning support groups through partnerships that currently exist with Marymede Catholic College, enabling early intervention for children where necessary.

Marymede Early Learning Centre provides children with a familiarity of school environment, leading to a significant decrease in anxiety prior to commencing Prep, whether enrolled at Marymede Catholic College or elsewhere.

Marymede Early Learning Centre benefits from an unfettered communication channel between qualified staff with expert knowledge of the developmental stages of early childhood and how children progress through them – from both a Kindergarten and Prep perspective. This endeavours to provide children with a continuity of learning and development without disruption.
