Palmwoods Early Learning Centre

Who We Are

Palmwoods Early Learning Centre is owned and operated by 2 long standing, local
families from the Sunshine Coast. We wanted to provide a family owned childcare centre, away from corporate values.

We strongly believe in preserving our local environment and reducing waste where possible.  We have solar power, collect rainwater, recycle & reuse where possible.  Where we can, we also engage local businesses to provide services & products we need when required.

Our Philosophy

At Palmwoods Early Learning Centre we believe that children should be active participants in their environment and as such allow children’s’ ideas to shape play on the day with some structure provided to guide children through their learning.

We want to provide a “home like” atmosphere which incorporates realistic, natural & culturally rich environments, while using the latest technology in communication, security & operations.

Our educators plan for the children with a focus on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) outcomes and through use of the QKLG (Queensdland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines).

Our Centre Director

Anita holds a Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood and over 30 years’ experience in the industry, 23 of these alone as a Director of Long Day Care here on the Sunshine Coast.

Along with a wealth of experience and a high level of qualifications; Anita also holds a warm, friendly and professional persona.
