Welcome to The Green Elephant family

We are so much more than childcare.

We are understanding, discovery and happiness.

We are a home away from home.

We are family.

ABOUT US

The Green Elephant Early Learning Centres are family owned and operated services. Having three young children of our own, we understand the importance of providing an environment where children feel safe and secure much like home.

We realise the level of trust you place in us when enrolling your child. We are committed to providing the highest quality standard of care and education possible.

As a family working together, we are passionate about raising the bar in the industry. We simply want to do early learning better, incorporating fundamental principles that are important to us.

The Green Elephant ELC is guided by the concept of “family” which is paramount to us and this core value is implemented in every facet of our business and beyond. Not only are we committed to working in partnership with families to foster a nurturing, child focused educational and caring environment but we also believe in creating a genuine sense of community and contributing where we can. We work together as a family and as part of a community.

OUR CENTRES

The Green Elephant Early Learning Centres are purpose built to provide inspiring learning and play spaces for children aged 0-6 years. Each area has been tailored to meet the needs and development that is appropriate for each child.

Our indoor learning spaces promote constructive activity and purposeful exploration. These areas are organised to allow easy flow between activities, creating a sense of order, a feeling of belonging and opportunities both for solo contemplation and for children to collaborate with others as they choose.

Our wonderful outdoor learning spaces offer opportunities for children to learn, explore and feel a sense of belonging. We nurture in children a love of nature and desire to preserve, protect and enhance the natural world around them. Our natural outdoor environment features trees and plants, edible gardens, sandpits, areas that invite play, quiet spaces where the children can sit and reflect, slides, natural timber cubby houses music elements and water elements.

All nutritious meals are created by our nutritionist and prepared in our kitchen by our qualified chef. Meals are eaten in our dining room where the children are encouraged to interact and learn about healthy eating.

HEALTHY EATING

Creating healthy eating habits from a young age is an essential part of life long health and wellbeing. At The Green Elephant we nourish young tummies with the goodness they need to help your child grow both physically and mentally to their greatest potential. 

We believe food offered to your child should be wholesome, natural, rich in nutrients, tasty and fun. We encourage children to learn about food, where it comes from and why eating healthy makes us feel so good. 

We know what an important role nutrition plays in supporting healthy, optimal growth and development, and this is why we have made it our responsibility to provide your child with meals and snacks which are full of nutrients, vitamins and minerals essential for growing bodies and learning minds.

Learning about sustainability starts with everyday practice. Sustainable practices are embedded in the children’s daily routine and in their day-to-day activities.
