When we are looking to find an Early Learning Centre for our children, it’s important to remember that their happiness is the most important factor to consider. At Meerilinga, while we know that you will be impressed by our nature play based activities and energetic teachers that are leading the way in early learning education and care, it’s important for your child to feel at home. This is why we are offering you the chance to come along for a free trial at our Cockburn Children and Family Centre and get to know us.
As a Cockburn local, you might have seen our centre along Winterfold Road in Coolbellup. A hidden gem in the rapidly expanding community of Cockburn, the centre is a beautifully landscaped facility, well-equipped with all of the necessities for play-based learning. With classes structured in line with the Early Years Learning Framework, Meerilinga Cockburn is a bustling hub of activity that you and your family will fall in love with the moment you step through the doors.
Not only do we have a centre that pushes the boundaries in terms of educational best practices and facilities, it also offers your children something even more important. A safe, nurturing environment where they will ‘learn through play’. Not just colours and numbers and letters, but how to make friends, be inquisitive and confident and resilient in all that they do. Incorporating “nature” into the early learning program, the Cockburn centre is home to three much loved chickens, that the children greet each morning and spoil with treats of fruit scraps and vegetables from the garden. We encourage our children to explore and experiment their way to being the best they can.
Don’t just take our word for it, the best way for you to see this first hand is to experience it yourself (the conditions of our free trial day are listed below). As you can see it’s a fairly simple process. The trial is open to children aged between 2 and 4 and you simply call the centre before the end of February to book your spot. The day needs to be used and enjoyed by the end of March at our Cockburn Family and Children Centre, which is open Monday to Friday from 8am – 4:30pm. Daily positions for the trial are limited, so give the centre a call and secure your free trail day as quickly as possible. While we are a fairly new part of your community, once the word gets out we will fast become a very popular part of the community!
Our educational program starts at 9.00am and finishes at 3.00pm. However, families are welcome to drop off or pick up children within our opening hours of 8.00am – 4.30pm.
