EARLY LEARNING CENTRE
WILLOW EARLY LEARNING CENTRE
Centrally located on the Gold Coast, Willow Early Learning Centre Arundel caters for 74 children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age.
Your child’s journey with us begins in the Nursery and extends right through to our Government Approved Kindergarten Program.
Our beautiful outdoor environment is an extension to our five well-appointed rooms. This setting encourages engaging activities and imaginative development.
Our Educators are very experienced and dedicated to the wellbeing and education of the children entrusted into our care, accommodating and responding to children’s individual needs and feelings. We allow children to develop a sense of wellbeing where they feel encouraged to explore every aspect of their world.
Our Educators are committed to providing the best quality care and education, working collaboratively with families, respecting their decisions and rights as the child’s first educators.
We offer a variety of curricula activities including Japanese language, music lessons, movement classes and a tennis program.
Our centre provides morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. These meals are prepared and cooked on site by our in-house cook in accordance with Nutrition Australia guidelines. We make the most of our wonderful climate and peaceful surrounds and frequently serve meals in our alfresco dining area. Meals are provided by age stage for young infants, in consultation with families.
We use Storypark as a communication platform for families to share their children’s experiences through photos, stories and learning outcomes.

EXPLORE OUR CENTRE
MEET OUR CENTRE MANAGER
My name is Erin Dobell and I am the Centre Manager here at Willow Early Learning Centre Arundel.
I have been working with children for over 15 years, working in the Early Childhood Sector for about 10 Years and hold a Diploma of Early Childhood Education.
What I enjoy most about my role in the sector is that I get to see children every day and continually build long lasting relationships with families. We work in an environment that is always changing and we all get to witness huge milestones with these children, such as taking a first step, writing their name and building their own friendships and that is the best part of my job.
If you are looking for a Centre that focuses on safe and secure relationships with children, please come for a walk-through and meet our wonderful educators. At Willow Early Learning Centres, we believe that clear and open communication is highly important and we continue to grow and find new ways of communicating and use a variety of resources to keep parents informed of your child’s development and accomplishments.
Our programming and planning for your child’s development is very important to us and we follow the Early Years Learning Framework and use this for planning and implementing learning through play, while adopting a holistic approach.
Why not start your journey with us? Come and meet our wonderful educators and take a tour of this beautiful Centre.
Our Centre welcomes visits from prospective families. Centre tours can be booked in advance at a specific time to allow the Centre Manager to be available to show the family around the facilities. This ensures that we can dedicate the time needed to support the family’s enquiry.
During the tour the Centre Manager will provide families information that includes:
- The Centre’s Philosophy, Educational Programs and Curriculum;
- An introduction to Educators;
- A tour of the indoor and outdoor learning environments;
- Administration matters, cost, fee payment methods and enrolment pack requirements.
Following the Centre tour, the child can be formally enrolled and an orientation meeting can be scheduled.
Please contact us for appointments.
