Parent Involvement

Parents are very welcome at Edinburgh Early Learning Centre. They are able to help out with library, digital technology sessions at Edinburgh College Primary and excursions. Our staff enjoy having parents visit and participate in theme days such as “Community Helper” where the parents demonstrate their chosen employment and “Countries” where parents enjoy being able to talk about their birth country or a country they have recently visited.

Term Dates & Hours of Operation

Edinburgh Early Learning Centre is open from 7:00am to 5:30pm Monday to Friday. We trade for 49 consecutive weeks each year. The Centre is open for normal trading during school holidays, but is closed on public holidays. Over the Christmas break the Centre closes on the Friday approximately one week before Christmas for a total period of three weeks.

Because we are both a funded 4 year old Kindergarten and a Long Day Centre, when your child is booked in for the Kindergarten program, you have the added flexibility of extending your hours beyond the designated session times at no extra cost.
