On behalf of everyone here at St Simon Peter Early Learning Centre we welcome you and your family to our Centre. We are excited to soon be starting on this journey with you and your family. A journey filled with learning, laughter, fun and adventure that we experience every day in our Early Learning Centre. We encourage you to come into the Centre and spend some time looking around, meet our educators and share information about your child and family. We look forward to a long and happy association with you as we work in partnership to provide the best learning environment for your child.
Achieving excellence in care and education for all families, children and educators that enter our Service.
