Grow Early Learning Centre’s philosophy is that we provide high quality care and education to the young children in a warm, friendly and supportive environment. 

We plan and program according to the children’s needs, interests, using information from families (who we believe are our main source of information and children’s first teachers) and observations noted by educators at the service, in conjunction of educators’ knowledge and experience.

Our educators’ goal is to help your child grow into a social, confident, competent and independent individual through play  which are acts of experiencing, experimenting, observing and imitating support and assist every child in meeting the 5 learning outcomes, which covers all developmental areas of the WHOLE child.
