Early Childhood

At our centre, we understand the importance of early childhood education, and we are dedicated to providing the highest quality child care services for families in the Gladesville area. Our Montessori educational programs are designed to be developmentally appropriate for each age group, from babies to preschoolers, and are tailored to support each child’s unique learning style and pace. We believe that children learn best when they are encouraged to explore the world around them, and when they are supported by a team of dedicated and caring educators.

Our centre is housed in a stand-alone building, which means that we are not connected to other shops or apartments. This unique feature allows us to offer a dedicated space that is solely focused on providing exceptional child care and education services. Our building is specifically designed to support the holistic development of each child, with spacious, bright classrooms, child-sized furniture, and a wide range of resources and materials that promote exploration and discovery.

We believe that attending child care centres should be a positive and enriching experience for both children and their families. That’s why we place a strong emphasis on building positive relationships with parents and providing support and resources to help families navigate the challenges of starting care or starting school. We understand that a child’s development is a lifelong journey, and we are committed to providing access to the latest updates and services to support the health and well-being of each child and family.

Parent Testimonials

“ Monash ELC is everything I wanted for my little one. All the educators in the room are so lovely and genuinely care about my little girl they have put a lot of effort to make her feel comfortable and ease the transition as much as possible. I am thrilled that the goodbye moments have become a lot easier in a very short time. They have observed her interests and notice all the little things which makes me feel very comfortable and confident that she will thrive in this environment. Natasha the director is very hands on, lovely to speak to, great on updates even before opening the centre. I wish I could give you more than five stars. Thank you for all that you are doing.”

“ I can not recommend Monash ELC anymore highly. My now, almost 11month old daughter switched from a family daycare that I thought she was thriving and enjoying u till I moved here. Her independence, her inquisitiveness has grown just in the first few weeks. She squeals with excitement when she arrives and easily goes to the educators. They keep me more informed than I ever thought I could be in a center and I genuinely feel the love from the educators to my daughter. If you wanted a genuinely amazing and caring center, Look no further.”

“ I have a little one in the Koala room at Monash. I moved her from another centre. It was a tough decision as she was settled at the previous centre, but I am so glad we made the move. The educators do a fantastic job caring for her. They are highly experienced, skill and knowledgeable. It is clear she feels safe and enjoys herself. She is also getting exposure to Montessori activities. Trying to manage work and parenting, I am glad that at the centre there is a focus on supporting her learning, development and independence. It takes a bit of the load off for me. She also gets to explore her creative side, painting and drawing. It is a very high quality centre. Highly recommend. Natasha is a warm and kind manager, it is clear she supports her staff and the children.”
