Bahrs Scrub Early Learning is a full-service childcare centre catering for children from six weeks to six years of age.

Our unique philosophy is be all about keeping childcare simple – through our children’s eyes. Our programs are based on managing and understanding a balance between care, education and play and allowing children to discover their innate ‘Wildhood’!

All children are capable of extraordinary things, and their potential for happiness lies within all of them. And although they will face challenges as they grow and learn, our educators will give them the skills to build their resilience and become brave, curious, adaptable and extend their reach into the world.

They’ll do this by providing a warm and nurturing learning environment, and encouraging play in our centre’s natural settings — from our bike tracks and waterpark to our veggie gardens and barnyard. Children will feel safe and confident, be more resistant to stress, and have a higher measure of self-worth. It also allows their little minds will grow and develop, and inspire them to embrace a rich learning journey that will prepare them for school and for life!

Our Facilities

Remember when you were young and spent your days outdoors digging in the garden, playing in the sandpit and splashing about in the backyard pool? At Bahrs Scrub Early Learning Centre, these are activities children will enjoy each and every day while in our care.

At Bahrs Scrub Early Learning Centre, children will be free to choose how they play and learn and how they entertain themselves. Our unique outdoor environments will feature two large bike tracks, four sandpits and a large grassy area for them to run wild in. There will be Garden World where they can learn how to plant and tend to a variety of vegetables and herbs. And they will have a Barnyard full of animals to get to know — from ducks, chickens and goats to reptiles and a wide range of bird species. It’s a genuine farm stay environment in the city and the opportunities for fun will be endless!

Our Educators

Studies have shown the early years are the most critical stages of children’s development. Our qualified and experienced educators will be committed to nurturing play-based learning through the guiding principles of the Early Years Learning FrameworkBelonging, Being and Becoming. They will also follow the certified National Quality Standard (NQS) for early childhood education which will help the children embrace a lifetime love of learning.

At Barhs Scrub Early Learning, getting dirty will be compulsory, shoes will be optional, and ‘real’ play will allow children to return to their ‘Wildhood’ and look forward to a future filled with amazing possibilities.
