Pelican’s Nest Early Learning Centre


About us

Pelican’s Nest, Early Learning Centre is staffed by highly qualified Early Childhood specialists to support your children. We are passionate educators who provide an immersive Nature Play program. Outdoor play and experiences, such as bush walks, feeding the chickens and ducks and growing plants in our permaculture garden enable our educators to teach your children environmental awareness and sustainability in a practical way. Along with this, we run a strong numeracy and literacy program that leverages the resources of CCPS, giving your child the best start to their learning journey.

The Centre is open 51 weeks of the year excluding public holidays. The hours of operation are from 6.30am to 6.30pm.
