At Coolbinia Primary School we understand that Early Childhood is a crucial time for growing healthy minds.  Our specialist Early Learning Centre (ELC) teaching and support staff provide a balanced program though hands on, creative and education experiences. We provide a warm and happy environment with opportunities to engage in the local environment through sustainability and adventures in the natural world around us including our own patch of bushland.  Kindergarten and Pre-Primary children have access to the school Resource Centre, Computer Lab, iPads, on site out of school care, specialist teachers (music and Phys-Ed)  and canteen facilities.  Children tend to our class gardens, experience school incursions such as cultural dances and performances. The Pre-Primary children also attend assemblies, participate in swimming lessons and sports days as well as other major school and community events.  All Early Childhood classes contribute amazing art pieces at our annual art show, “Artopia” as well as entertain at the end of year concert.

Our program supports the belief that all children need care and support to develop and learn.
