Catholic Early Learning and Care services in the Diocese of Cairns cater for children aged from 6 weeks to 13 years and include Kindergarten, Long Day Care and Outside School Hours Care (Before School, After School and Vacation Care).
It is fundamental that educational and care service provision be authentic, developmentally sensitive, community centred, relevant and responsive.
Our services are founded upon the love of Jesus Christ, the values of the Gospels, the significance of relationships, developmental excellence and quality learning.
Our teachers and caregivers support families in raising their children by:
- Helping parents to balance family activities and workplace responsibilities
- Responding to each child’s needs with care that is sensitive and relevant
- Maintaining collaborative relationships
- Providing best practice education that
is also creative and challenging.
The Legal/corporate entity that is the sponsor for our Early Learning Services is the Roman Catholic Trust Corporation for the Diocese of Cairns (RCTC), trading as Catholic Early Learning and Care Provider Approval Number: PR00006556.
