Early Learning Centre
St Thomas Aquinas Early Learning Centre (ELC) provides students with a strong sense of belonging in a nurturing environment staffed by highly qualified teachers that fosters the spirit, heart mind and body of each child.
Grounded in an understanding of children’s natural sense of wonder, the ELC aims to equip children with the skills to make sense of their world by wondering, questioning, interacting, reflecting and praying.
Catholic ELC curriculum is based on five foundational pillars underpinned by religious education principles and practices expressed through a play based curriculum. The pillars are:
- Physical Development and Wellbeing
Play Based Curriculum
Our highly qualified and caring staff develop engaging learning programs that are responsive to children's ideas, interests, strengths and abilities. We work collaboratively with parents to establish a mutually respectful and co-operative relationship in which information on the child's progression of learning is shared.
