St Marina Early Learning Centre

Inspiring learning for life at St Marina Early Learning Centre. Our Parramatta preschool and long day care centre offers child care for families living or commuting through Parramatta, North Parramatta, Carlingford and Rydalmere.  

When stepping into our child care centre, you will experience a world where children are inspired to explore, learn and grow. Our spacious outdoor environment is designed to inspire play-based exploration with features including sandpits, vegetable gardens and other exciting play equipment. Children enjoy uninterrupted time and space to discover the outdoors to test their limits and develop strength, balance, and self-confidence. Being outside supports children’s overall health and wellbeing. 

Spacious areas designed to inspire

What sets our child care centre apart from the others is the great programing we offer for all the different age groups. Our centre is set into four separate rooms that allows our Early Childhood educators to plan for more age specific programs. We have 6 weeks to 2-year-old room, 2-3-year-old room, 3-4 year old room and lastly a 4-5 year old room. This allows us to focus on children development milestones, toileting, self-help skills, independence, and school readiness programs for the different age groups. 

Our indoor environments encourage exploration in our innovative and engaging resources and learning experiences. Children wonder, create, and test out their ideas as they play with a range of materials in purposeful play spaces. Our team of experienced educators plan play-based learning experiences around children’s interests and learning goals. Literacy and numeracy concepts are embedded in play-based learning, as children engage as scientists, artists, architects, storytellers and designers.  

Our centre kitchen is an integral part of everything we do at St Marina Early Learning Centre. 

Healthy meals freshly prepared in-house

Nutritious meals are created daily by our in-house chef who caters to all dietary requirements including Halal meals. Educators use mealtimes to enhance relationships with the children, giving them opportunities to share stories and experiences, and display healthy eating practices.  

A wide range of specialised programs that are on a rotating schedule including dance and kids CrossFit program with a small portion of added term fee that is affordable to families. These fun and exciting programs enrich the daily program.  

Community-based learning

We regularly present educational children’s shows and welcome special guests to the childcare centre to extend on the children’s learning including KindiFarm, reptile show, multicultural shows, sustainability show and Healthy Harold. We also have strong community focused programs where educators and families support the local community in Parramatta through clothing and nappy drives, donations made to the Ronald McDonald charity and The World’s Greatest Shave as well as other charities throughout the year.
