About

 Centrally located on the Gold Coast, Willow Early Learning Centre Arundel caters for 74 children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age.

Your child’s journey with us begins in the Nursery and extends right through to our Government Approved Kindergarten Program.

Our beautiful outdoor environment is an extension to our five well-appointed rooms. This setting encourages engaging activities and imaginative development.

Our Educators are very experienced and dedicated to the wellbeing and education of the children entrusted into our care, accommodating and responding to children’s individual needs and feelings. We allow children to develop a sense of wellbeing where they feel encouraged to explore every aspect of their world.

Our Educators are committed to providing the best quality care and education, working collaboratively with families, respecting their decisions and rights as the child’s first educators.

We offer a variety of curricula activities including Japanese language, music lessons, movement classes and a tennis program.

Our centre provides morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. These meals are prepared and cooked on site by our in-house cook in accordance with Nutrition Australia guidelines. We make the most of our wonderful climate and peaceful surrounds and frequently serve meals in our alfresco dining area. Meals are provided by age stage for young infants, in consultation with families.

We use Storypark as a communication platform for families to share their children’s experiences through photos, stories and learning outcomes.

My son went to this Kindy. He called it his rough kindy. Would not recommend to anyone leaving there little one here. When I addressed this with centre manager her response was to talk to the educator. Well I did tht and things did not change. I changed his kindy and never looked back. Hes now in a loving care place where children thrive.

Highly recommend Willow, my son has been going for 2yrs, starting in the nursery. He has loved every educator he has had and has developed such great connections with them all. His educators are always willing to provide me with advice when asked and genuinely care about his development. I feel very comfortable and happy to leave him at Willow.

I highly recommend Willows, my 3 kids have gone to this Center, I have one child still at the Center. The carers there are amazing! They have been nothing but, loving, supportive and understanding. They have raised my kids with compassion, respect and love. I have nothing but gratitude towards the Carers. They are not just ordinary Carers to my children they are like Family members. It’s a healthy, safe and happy environment for my kids. ❤️💙💛💚💜🤍🧡

My 3 year old had been going there for 2 years and we had to go on a family emergency to another state. The child care then unenrolled my child without notifying anyone because it wasn’t written in writing until I tried to return. My poor daughter was heart broken. I have spoken to the new management and they have dealt with the issue. It was a great child care until these problems came up. Had no problem with the teachers only old management. Apparently new management and I wish them the best.

I can't express how much the staff and management have help my 4 boys and myself. They are amazing. A friend recommended the kindy and I was a bit weary because of my previous experience with another kindy. Being a very strong mum and a hard headed person, I only want what's best for my 4 babies, like any other parent really. Hands down this is the best kindy. We all have our struggles but the staff have gone far and beyond for my tamairiki. Thank you so much for your continuous hard work and support.

Terrible kindy, never paying enough attention to kids and my daughter was falling over and hitting her head (doesn’t happen in new kindy) Not organised and always losing her stuff and never got sick so much as when she went here

Nicholas King image
Great Kindy, it’s the staff that make this place special. Our little one came back each day with many happy tales.

I have been extremely happy with Willow Early Learning Centre as my chosen daycare facility. ALL the staff are lovely and go above and beyond to make sure my little one is settled when I leave her there in the morning and when I pick her up she is just beaming, having so much fun there. I would highly recommend this place to any anxious mums (as I was) looking to put there bub into daycare for the first time. They also have casual days available which is very convenient for when something pops up. Thank you Erin & staff!! - Jess
