Developing a
Love of Learning

We partner with families to help children
develop a love of learning.

Quality Early Childhood
Care and Education in Enriched Learning Environments

We are committed to providing the highest quality, family orientated childcare by nurturing children in an environment of Christian love that is conducive to creative play and developing a love of learning in every child.

The Isle of Capri Early Learning Centre will have the autonomy to develop an inclusive program that meets the individual developmental needs of all children, the needs of all families and the needs of local community. We will strive for continuous improvement and excellent standards by working as a team, communicating openly and undertaking ongoing professional development.

Our classrooms offer a range of stimulating resources, activities and age-appropriate developmental experiences. So whatever your early learning needs, our family at Isle of Capri look forward to meeting you and your family. We welcome you to stop by, call or email to enquire or to arrange a personalised tour of the centre, at your convenience.
