Why Caves ELC

We understand the importance of choosing the right early education provider for your child. We also appreciate how critical the first six years are to a child’s development. From 0-6, a child’s brain develops more than at any other time in their life!

  • Our educational programs draw on the experience of the leading thinkers in early learning and children’s development
  • Our network of health professionals including specialist support in occupational health, speech, dental and vision
  • Our modern centre’s environment is designed with your child in mind, to stimulate and aid their learning journey
  • Our outdoor space is a haven for exploration and discovery, designed and built by specialists with a passion for early learning
  • We provide morning tea and afternoon tea daily, which means you can pack and prepare your child’s favourite foods for lunch. This also means your child will develop the skills to open their lunch boxes and packets before they get to Kindergarten. Hats and sunscreen are also provided.


Here at Caves Beach ELC we believe in creating a warm and home like environment that has a strong emphasis on building trusting relationships with families, children and the community.

Our key philosophy points focus on establishing a curriculum that is rich in interest based activities, promoting cultural competence and encouraging children to explore, investigate, imagine and discover the world around them.


Caves Beach ELC have a strong belief in providing an educational program that encourages children to explore, create and investigate the world around them.

Our program is centered around play- based learning, spontaneous experiences that derive from educator observations and children’s interests and input from our families and community.

We research and plan experiences that are thoughtful, meaningful and take into account children’s age, abilities and strengths.


Qualified, professional, respectful and caring…these are the qualities we look for. After all, Educators are models of behaviour for your child.

Getting Active

Our learning environments are well thought out spaces that encourage children to explore, create and investigate. We regularly update our learning spaces to cater for Children’s growing strengths, interests, skills and our educational program goals.

We aim to provide an environment that is rich is natural elements, allowing the children the autonomy to freely explore their surroundings, both indoors and outdoors. Our natural learning spaces create a calming atmosphere for the children to explore.

Centre director

Meet Kylie. Kylie is a mother of three and has been working within the Early Learning Education sector for 17 years. She has a Diploma in Early Education along with a Certificate 4 in Training and Assessment, qualifying her ability to teach within the early education sector.

Kylie’s passion for education started at a young age when she would volunteer during the school holidays at a cousin’s day care.

She believes that when children feel safe, secure and supported in their environment, they can form secure attachments and form a sense of belonging. As the leader of the Baby Room, she places utmost importance on creating a nurturing space where children’s routines are consistent with that at home.

Kylie strongly believes that each child is an individual, with unique strengths, skills and abilities and with positive scaffolding, children can thrive and develop a love for learning, right from the word go.
