Hi, I’m Lisa and I’ve been the Co-ordinator at Merrilands Uniting Early Learning for over five years. I’ve worked in the sector for over 30 years and hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Education.

Safe environment

As a child safe organisation, our educators undergo regular working with children’s and police checks. We are focused on delivering learning and development in a safe and supportive environment, so you can trust that your child is in good hands.
