About Pelican's Nest
Pelican’s Nest Early Learning Centre is a purpose-built long day care facility ideally located on the Caloundra City Private School grounds in the beautiful Pelican Waters. Our passionate team of Early Childhood Educators welcome children from 6-weeks to 5-years of age, including a Queensland Government Approved Kindergarten Program to support childhood development in a play-based environment.
As an accredited Nature Play and Bush Kindy provider, our enriching programs and curriculum offer immersive outdoor experiences that instil environmental awareness and sustainability in a practical way. We also encourage STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) enquiry, applying this education model to children’s everyday learning. This includes hands-on experiences that support building vocabulary, problem solving, communication and reflection, increasing their understanding of the world around them.
We understand all children and families are unique and offer a child-centred approach within a nurturing and engaging environment, guided by the National Early Years Learning Framework. This creates opportunities for all children to thrive and maximises opportunities for learning in a place they feel safe, connected and happy.
It takes a village to raise a family. We are your village.
