MARLEE - Narrabundah
‘Children have opportunity to acknowledge significant events, develop early literacy skills and best of all play. I could not recommend a better setting for the care and education of children.’ – Marlee Parent
‘Marlee has been exceptional at engaging our son. The educators provide a more tailored individual learning environment which has seen him thrive and has prepared him well for Primary School.’ – Marlee Parent
Marlee Early Education and Care Centre is a specialised stand-alone preschool catering to children 3-5 years. Located in central Narrabundah and surrounded by trees our play space is full of fascinating opportunities for children to explore.
We focus on children being everyday learners, play is the work of children and our role as educators is to support and scaffold that learning with opportunities for children to be active, inquisitive learners.
We recognise that children need specific skills to support their transition into school, we have a school readiness curriculum designed by our Early Childhood teacher. This program is founded on the core principles of early literacy, early numeracy, social and emotional development, self-regulation and resilience.
Marlee Early Education and Care Centre is open from 7.30am and closes at 6pm with a two week shut down from Christmas Eve each year.
As part of the daily fee, all of our centres provide a full nappy service. Linen for sleep times is also provided, and is laundered by the centre.
