an inspiring early learning centre for children

We are guided by the Early Years of Learning Framework which recognises the uniqueness of the individual and the value of diversity.

What do we stand for?

Mirrabrook’s mission is to create an early learning centre of excellence for children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age. The centre will provide an environment for young children to enjoy a range of learning experiences that will foster self-esteem, resilience, imagination, curiosity and the motivation to become a lifelong learner.

The early years are of great importance for brain and emotional development. Our objective is to provide programs that encourage social relationships. Young children become active learners through a play-based program that encourages thinking, investigating, exploring and problem solving in a social environment. The learning experiences provided will assist children to develop an understanding about themselves and diversity guided by EYLF (curriculum framework).

Parents will be valued for their participation, involvement and partnership. They will be encouraged to share their expectations.

Who manages and staffs the centre?

Mirrabrook is a venture of Saint Ignatius’ College, Riverview and while strongly supported by the College is managed independently. The centre is non-denominational and welcomes both boys and girls from 6 weeks to 5 years of age. Long day care will be provided 5 days per week, 50 weeks per year from 7am to 6pm.

The centre has dedicated experienced educators, wanting to work together as a team with children and parents. The physical environment is welcoming, stimulating and provoking.
