Our Philosophy


This beautiful Centre has been a part of Southport history, providing early childhood education to many children over the last 20 years. Each family that has operated the centre have put their hearts into it, creating this beautiful place for children. Under current ownership, it remains a privately owned, family-operated centre as The Learning Nook.

As owner operator of The Learning Nook, collaboratively with our team of qualified educators, we aim to use our many years of industry knowledge and experiences to achieve the following goals:

1. Deliver an educational program that will enhance the foundations for successful learning for every child.

2. Build collaborative partnerships with families to achieve the best possible outcomes for the child and family

3. To provide affordable, quality early education and care. (Ask about our fee package)

What Parents Say


My child is going to attend this centre for Kindergarten because the teacher is one of the best early childhood teachers I have met. She was recommended to us and I am happy that my daughter will be in her pre-prep class next year.


The best thing about this kindy is the size. The classes are small, so the kids get lots of extra attention. Only 10 children in the Kindergarten class. My son’s last centre had 26 children. I believe he is really benefiting from the smaller class, it is definitely a lot less noisy. A very calming, relaxing atmosphere.


This Centre has been here for ever. My children loved attending and they are now adults. Perhaps their children will go there too. The staff have always been welcoming.
