Welcome to the Learning Nook Early Education and Childcare

The Learning Nook is a quaint litter Queenslander cottage, set on a quiet leafy street in Southport. This unique and small boutique centre boasts a truly natural environment, with a layout of gardens and plants that include fruit trees, herb gardens and flower beds. An abundance of wild birds, mammals, reptiles and insects are enticed to visit our environment by our careful planning and planting of trees and shrubs.

The playground is a stimulating and engaging environment, where the children can extend their indoor play to outside. They can create, dig and plant in the gardens; run, jump and swing in the yard or quietly explore the magical nooks and crannies of the grounds.

The original rooms of the Queenslander have been left in place, enabling each room to be utilised as a separate learning area and a space for active, passive, noisy and quiet activities. Small sections of walls have been removed to allow for adequate visual access. The centre is full of tiny nooks to explore, a treasure trove in every corner.

We are a truly unique Centre designed to encourage creativity and inspiration in a cosy homelike atmosphere. Our small open classrooms enhance individualized attention to each child’s learning and progress.
