Our community

“We are just visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love…and then we return home.’ Australian Aboriginal proverb

Welcome to our Pelican’s Nest community, a welcoming, inclusive and connected team, invested in the well being of all. We value meaningful and respectful relationships with each of the children in our care, with our families, and within our team as it is these genuinely compassionate connections that will allow us to further build and strengthen our community and help everyone strive. We are here to listen and support you and your child through every step of their early learning journey. We work with parents and caregivers to establish a strong partnership and provide a safe, caring, nurturing, and inspiring haven for your children, our children.

From the Baby Nest through to Kindergarten, we recognise each child is unique, developing, learning and growing at their own pace. As an extension of your home, we are here to provide the highest level of care based on individual needs.

We all play an important role in the wellbeing of young children. Research shows the first five years of a child’s life are the most important for brain development. We invite you to watch the video below which highlights how connection, talk, play, a healthy home and community are the top 5 key things your child needs to thrive by five.

‘Observe and listen to children because when they ask ‘why’? they are not simply asking for the answer form you. They are requesting the courage to find a collection of possible answers.’
