Inclusive early learning

Our programs are guided by the National Quality Framework for early learning and are focused on developing your child’s individual strengths.

We provide nature-based, hands-on learning activities and encourage children to become active members of their local community.

We are the largest Victorian provider of specialist services for children who need extra support to thrive, such as the Kindergarten Inclusion Support and Preschool Field Officer programs.

We can also support you to access a range of Uniting’s community support services.

Our educators are passionate about giving every child the best possible start in their early education to help them become confident and capable learners.
