Developing your child’s natural curiosity

Our educational program offers a full school readiness program for your child prior to commencing kindergarten. With one of the leading school readiness programs in the area, the main curriculum focus within the Ocean Adventurers room is to equip your child with the skills necessary for a smooth transition into primary school. 

Our preschool curriculum, aligns with The Early Years Learning Framework, which promotes independence, self-help skills and social-emotional skill development, while also promoting literacy and numeracy skills, problem solving, following instructions, cooperation and concentration. 






Our on-going children’s development program offers educational and recreational programs which are designed to optimise the creativity, mental and physical advancement of your child. Self expression is encouraged through a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities, such as music, arts and crafts. Children’s interests are supported and encouraged through individual and group stimuli, all in the name of fun!


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.


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./p>
