Our Early Childhood Learning Center (ECLC) is based within a unique stand-alone precinct within the Science City School campus. The ECLC commences a child’s formal learning journey at our school from 2 years of age, providing children with opportunity for discovery, growth and learning. Use of a variety of natural materials, within a green, clean and safe contemporary facility, can give children the freedom to explore and express themselves.
Inspired by the philosophy of world-renowned Reggio Emilia early childhood teaching, and strengthened by the IB Primary Years Programme standards and practices, the Science City ECLC provides both structured and unstructured learning elements to best suit learning at these special grade levels. Our focus on inquiry and self-guided learning is supported by highly qualified and experienced educators, who partner with parents in the educational development of each child.
