St Peter's Early Learning Centre

St Peter's Early Learning Centre is currently located at St Peter's Catholic Church, Toorak.

St Peter’s Early Learning Centre is a Catholic Early Learning Environment, a partnership of education between St Kevin’s College Toorak and the Parish of St Peter’s Toorak. We strive to provide a sense of belonging, respecting the children as competent and capable learners, seeing each child as a balanced child with a strong sense of identity.

The early years of learning play a significant part in a child’s development. The quality of the experience encountered during these formative years is important in a child’s cognitive development. 

Integrated play-centred programs, based upon the Reggio Emilia concepts of learning and Gardiner’s Concepts of Early Learning, offer children the opportunity and time to discover and explore, to question and predict, to wonder, to imagine and to dream. The wider world becomes the child’s world. 

Emphasis is placed upon the development of a strong, positive self-image and a respect for the rights and feelings of others. The child is encouraged to be actively involved in strategies of collaboration and negotiation. Children become increasingly secure and reach out in their learning. St Peter’s Early Learning Centre immerses the child in the philosophy that learning is a lifelong journey, with links to further education at either Loreto Mandeville Hall or St Kevin’s College, Toorak.
