St Anthony's Early Learning Centre
St Anthony's Early Learning Centre is a unique learning environment overseen by Catholic Education of the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn and is supported by the principals of both St Anthony's Primary School (Mr Greg Walker) and St Thomas the Apostle Primary School (Ms Ursula Jamieson).
St Anthony's Early Learning Centre provides high quality early childhood education and care for the children of North Tuggeranong, catering for children in the suburbs of Wanniassa, Kambah, Oxley, Monash, Greenway and Bonython. The staff and children of the ELC are a vital part of the school community and share the school's facilities.
St Anthony's ELC enables your child to take their first step into Catholic Education. We embrace the broader vision, mission and underpinning values of St Anthony's Primary and St Thomas the Apostle Primary Schools and welcome families from many faith backgrounds who support the Catholic ethos of the schools.
St Anthony's ELC is a safe welcoming environment where we work to develop effective partnerships with parents, families and the wider community. We encourage family participation in all aspects of our ELC including day to day learning experiences, excursions, special events and the Parent & Friends Association. The Early Learning Centre can be contacted on 6231 0491.
