Forestville Early Learning Centre

About Us

Welcome to Forestville Early Learning Centre.

Our centre is open from 7:00am to 6:30pm and caters for children from birth to 6 years old.

Our centre was purpose built and contains lots of natural resources for the children to investigate and explore. With natural grassed areas, we also have a large trough for the children to plant and grow their own vegetables as well as a worm farm which encourages sustainable practices and instills a sense of environmental belonging within the children.

We offer many amenities to make your life easier including nappies and all meals. Our centre prides itself on our fantastic team of dedicated educators who put your children at the very core of everything they do, helping to nurture and create a sense of belonging in a fun and safe environment full of wonder and adventure.

We would love to welcome you to our centre so please feel free to drop by to meet our friendly educators and tour our purpose built facilities.

Our centre proudly offers a kindergarten/preschool program to ensure your child is supported for their transition to school every step of the way. With a focus on language, literacy, numeracy, social skills and more your child will become school ready.

Forestville Early Learning Centre Centre ManagerHi, my name is Talie Mengell and welcome to Forestville Early Learning Centre. I have been working in early education since 2003 and I have worked across family daycare and long daycare during this time. I have my Diploma in Early Years.

I love working in early learning because I am community-focused, the education of our youngest community members alongside supporting their families is a very rewarding place to be.

My favourite quote is: “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” – Maya Angelou.

Fun fact about me: My family converted a Toyota Hiace van into a camper van, which we travel in and we bring along our doodle dogs, Poppy and Charlie for adventures!
