Columba Cottage Early Learning Centre
Columba Cottage is an Early Learning Centre for 0 to 5 year olds, located on the St Columba Anglican School grounds. Columba Cottage places a high emphasis on the importance of playing to learn where children are involved in hands-on learning to develop an understanding about the world around them and runs exciting educational programs to encourage a child's development. The Centre's programs provide a balance between indoor and outdoor play, as well as times for relaxation. Children learn a wide range of skills and concepts (including social skills, pre-reading, pre-writing etc.) through exploring topics that interest them.
Family involvement is strongly encouraged at the Centre through daily diaries, portfolios and face to face interaction. The Centre has a transition to school program and throughout the Centre children are given the opportunity to learn the life skills that will assist in their transition into many environments, including school, sporting groups and other social settings. CCELC operates 52 weeks per year, Monday to Friday, from 6.30am to 6.00pm each day (with the exception of public holidays).
