About Pelican's Nest

Pelican’s Nest Early Learning Centre provides quality long day child care for children aged six weeks to school age.

We understand that all children are unique so we nurture an atmosphere in which our children feel secure and happy whilst caring for each child’s individual wants, needs and interests.

Pelican’s Nest ELC offers outstanding child care facilities previously unseen on the Sunshine Coast, and for many it must be “seen to be believed”. Our purpose built, state of the art early learning centre is located on Queensland's Sunshine Coast, on the grounds of the prestigious, independent Caloundra City Private School.

What Our Parents Say:

  • "We have just finished a year at Pelican’s Nest and it has been outstanding and more than I could have hoped for. The teachers are caring and provide special care suited for each child. I have a social chatty three year old and a shy two year old and both kids are looked after so well. The teachers go above and beyond to help with everything including advice and extra cuddles when they know your child isn’t having a great day. They constantly let you know how each child is doing and their happy, bright friendly faces greet you at every school drop off and pick up. All the teachers know all of the kids at the centre, even those not in their own class and the care and education provided is outstanding. We will stay at Pelican’s Nest until both kids are in ‘big school’. I highly recommend this centre."
    Erin Taylor-Burling
  • "My children have been attending Pelican's Nest for the last four years. They have always been happy to go to "The Nest" and we are very sad to be saying goodbye as we move onto Prep. The centre has a lovely atmosphere, the playground is always changing with new things to do and explore. All of the educators are thoughtful and respectful in the way they interact with the students and do such a great job in helping them develop their social skills and prepare them for Prep. We will miss you all!"
