Our journey of discovery and learning unfolds amongst a river backdrop filled with trees and nature. Dalton Drive Early Learning provides the opportunity to discover a love of the Earth. We have sincere respect for the environment as we continuously develop environmentally sustainable practices.

Family communication and guidance is embedded within our program as it provides us with the most significant view of the holistic child. By working in partnership with our parents we have the ability to provide the best duty of care to the child’s specific and individual needs. We celebrate all forms of diversity and believe all children, families and carers should be treated with respect, fairness and equity.

As educators, we will help children to become successful confident and capable learners by providing a curriculum that is inclusive, dynamic, complex and holistic. A focus is to create stimulating environments which allow exploration and for children to take managed risks. Our Educational program is play based, scaffolding the interests of the child. We support these interests with intentional teaching to support their development. Working closely with the National Quality Framework we provide exceptional teaching skills including an Approved Kindergarten Program that promises to give your children one of the best early learning experiences on the Sunshine Coast.

At Dalton Drive Early Learning we support small companies and incorporate local businesses into our program. We value Community involvement as it can have great impact on children’s learning as it extends past the family/teacher/peer relationship.

By promoting professional development within our centre, our educators have an opportunity to grow through reflective practice - along with the children they care for. With a genuine, sincere approach, we are committed to guiding our children through their early years with utmost care and respect.
