Journey Early Learning North Mackay is where your child’s journey begins. Children from ages six weeks to six years are surrounded by stimulating learning environments and nurturing educators. It’s a place where children can make a positive start to a life of learning, development, growth and opportunity.
From peek-a-boo to prep, we’re here every step of the way.
School transition is a major focus, and we work hard to ensure this is a smooth process. By providing a safe and secure environment, our children develop confidence, resilience and a strong sense of self for the school journey ahead.
In order to ensure every child is prepared for school, our Kindergarten classrooms are intentionally designed by our Teachers to align with the Journey Standards and the Early Years Learning Framework and Curriculum. Our Government Approved Funded 3 and 4-Year-Old Kindergarten Classrooms are run by ACCEQA approved Early Childhood Teachers and Qualified Educators. Children enrolling in our 4-Year-Old Kinder Program are provided with ongoing support from teachers in preparation for school through our School Readiness Program.
Did you know that your child can attend Journey from 6 weeks to their first day of school?
We’ve designed a helpful Child Care Subsidy calculator so you can discover more about your government entitlements. Need help? We’re here to chat, just book an appointment below.
Welcome to Journey Early Learning North Mackay.
My name is Noreen, and I come from the beautiful country of Ireland. I arrived whilst travelling for a year or two and here I am 11 years later married and with a beautiful little girl.
I have been in the early learning sector for over 19 years now starting out as a support educator, to a lead educator and now a centre manager.
My passion has always been with early childhood as I believe this is where we can make a real difference and help set the foundation for a child’s future. I believe each child is an individual and can learn at their own pace in childcare with love, support and guidance from us the educators. I am big on building relationships with each family to ensure that their child’s need and requirements are always met to the best of our ability.
I look forward to meeting you and your family and being a part of this wonderful and important journey.
The Journey Early
Exploring nature-based play
Children love getting out and exploring in nature. It really is the greatest teacher. Nature based play is a core part of our curriculum. That’s because it teaches them vital life skills including confidence, independence, exploration and cooperation. Playing outside also promotes health and wellbeing and teaches them respect for the environment.
