Early Learning Centre in the Heart of St George area

We recognise that young children learn through constructive play and our role is to help each child reach their full potential by providing an environment that is rich for learning.

Carlton Academy of Early Learning provides children with a nurturing learning environment with opportunities through play, focused and intentional teaching experiences.

We offer best in-class long day care, with a comprehensive school readiness program for children 2 years to school age.

Caterpillars (2-3 yrs)

Bursting with energy and curiosity, we welcome toddlers with love, creativity and patience. As 2 and 3 year-olds become more active and involved in their daily activities, we give them freedom and space to flourish.
