At our Belconnen Early Learning Centre, we celebrate our strengths and unique differences, and welcome everyone into our centre with open arms.

We work with our families to build strong partnerships which are paramount to the children’s development, focussed on kindness, involvement and trust. We also pride ourselves on sustainable practices, environmental awareness, waste minimisation and bringing the outdoors inside to provoke interest, investigation and a sense of belonging.

We are proud to be an inclusive centre and believe in the power of inspired children, families and educators.

Our Belconnen Early Learning Centre is perfect for families looking for childcare close to the Belconnen Town Centre. Being situated only 150m from Lake Ginninderra, there is plenty of opportunity for outside play and for the children to be among nature.
