Give your child an early education grounded in the teachings of Christ and at the service of society

We provide quality early learning for children 3 to 5 years that:

  • encourages younger children’s curiosity and the skills to explore and investigate
  • promotes the development of positive relationships
  • is supported by a safe, nurturing and home-like learning environment.

How we operate

St Michael's CELC

Run by Ambrose Centres, a social enterprise of the Catholic Diocese of Parramatta Services Limited (CDPSL), our Catholic Early Learning Centre is proud to provide the best quality early learning start for children - with higher staff to child ratio and a higher level of staff qualifications than the standard staffing requirements.

Experienced and passionate educators inspire and guide your child through a learning journey of self discovery, social cohesion and life readiness.

We support your child’s ideas, experiences and understandings in a learning environment that values play. Our centres support each child and his/her family, working together to encourage a child’s disposition to learn and create.
