Mission & Goals

The Catholic Early Learning Centre (CELC) opened in 2012 and forms part of the Mary Queen of the Family Parish and school communities, sharing it’s location with St Michael’s Primary School  and Nagle College,  offering a great introduction to learning in a faith filled environment. Our early learning centre follows the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia, ensuring every child will experience a sense of belonging, being and becoming by developing:
  • a strong sense of their identity and wellbeing
  • connections with their world
  • confidence and involvement in their learning; and
  • effective communication skills

Children are taught by our experienced and qualified educators who specialise in early learning and cater learning to the individual needs of each child. The learning centre introduces children to a variety of learning experiences in modern and spacious learning spaces designed to enrich every child’s learning experience whilst developing a love of learning.

Our Mission

In our ministry at Catholic Early Learning Centre Mary Queen of the Family Parish, we strive, as a work of love, for the full human development of children, grounded in the teachings of Christ and at the service of society.

All staff members share in the evangelising mission of the Church, as they endeavour to bring culture and faith into harmony in the  CELC community. The Parish Priest, parents/carers, children and educators work in partnership to realise this mission.
