St Peter's Early Learning Centre

For 2017 St Peter's Early Learning Centre is located at Rathfarnham, Loreto Toorak

The St Peter’s Early Learning Centre, a partnership in education between Loreto Mandeville Hall and St Kevin’s College, provides a happy, nurturing, creative and challenging environment where boys and girls from three years of age can explore learning. The ELC is situated in the beautiful structure of St Peter’s Church, Toorak Road, Toorak.

The early years of learning play a significant part in a child’s development. The quality of the experience encountered during these formative years is important in a child’s cognitive development.

Integrated play-centred programs, based upon the Reggio Emilia concepts of learning and Gardiner’s Concepts of Early Learning, offer children the opportunity and time to discover and explore, to question and predict, to wonder, to imagine and to dream. The wider world becomes the child’s world.

Emphasis is placed upon the development of a strong, positive self-image and a respect for the rights and feelings of others. The child is encouraged to be actively involved in strategies of collaboration and negotiation. Children become increasingly secure and ‘reach out’ in their learning. St Peter’s Early Learning Centre immerses the child in the philosophy that learning is a lifelong journey, with links to further education at either Loreto Mandeville Hall or St Kevin’s College, Toorak.
