Welcome to Cardinia Lakes Early Learning Centre Pakenham

Welcome to Cardinia Lakes Early Learning centre!

Located in the heart of the Cardinia Lakes community, our service offers high quality education and care to children 6 weeks to school age. We offer an exceptional 3 and 4 year old kindergarten program 5 days per week, led by a qualified Early Childhood Teacher. Children attend the kindergarten program for 5 hours each day and are able to access extended care hours before and after each session within the Early Learning Centre.

Our passionate team of educators ensures Cardinia Lakes ELC is a warm and inclusive learning environment in which every child feels welcome, valued and supported to reach their full potential. Our educators guide children’s learning through a play-based learning curriculum which is developed based on children’s individual needs, strengths and interests, in line with the Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standards.

Indoor learning spaces are purposefully designed to stimulate curiosity and excitement for learning, offering a wide variety of age-appropriate resources for play and learning. Outside children are offered plenty of shade and different areas for quiet, gentle play as well as larger open spaces for big, energetic play. Imaginations run wild on our climbing equipment, up in the cubby house, while riding around on bikes or digging in the veggie patch. Both indoor and outdoor learning spaces continually evolve to reflect children’s changing interests and developmental needs.

Our service is conveniently located near the local shopping precinct, Pakenham Primary School and Hollins Children’s Centre, with on-site parking available for easy pick-ups and drop-offs. We welcome families to contact us for more information. Please book a tour to visit and experience our centre for yourself!

About the curriculum

Educators draw on children's strengths, developmental needs, and interests as guiding factors when planning learning activities. The Early Years Learning Framework serves as the cornerstone of our curriculum design, with the National Quality Standards (NQS) also informing development of our service's policies, practices and curriculum.

During the enrolment process, educators engage with families to gather comprehensive information regarding children's backgrounds, individual needs and interests. This enables them to skillfully tailor programs that extend and enhance children's learning.

Our dedicated educators enjoy the freedom to apply their pedagogical knowledge and expertise in developing programs specific to their respective age groups. Through careful observations and meaningful discussions with children, educators identify areas of focus and seamlessly integrate intentional teaching within the play-based curriculum to meet learning and developmental outcomes.
