Welcome to NCC Early Learners Buderim

NCC Early Learners is a spacious, nurturing and lush day care centre centrally located in Buderim. It’s in a quiet location yet easily accessible for busy parents.

Our Buderim day care centre provides a sensory, play-based learning environment. Our large outdoor setting gives space to explore with trees and plants providing shade in the numerous play areas. Incorporated into the design is the use of natural light, large spaces for creativity, dance and art with natural playscapes for learning and inspiring play.

NCC Early Learners is one of the few Buderim day care providers that enable children to attend the same educational institution from six weeks of age through to Year 12 – because of the pathway to Nambour Christian College at Woombye, less than 20 minutes away.

Young children can make friends for life and have continuity of educational oversight, support and development from a caring and connected team of educators.

At NCC Early Learners Buderim we provide care with capacity for 60 full-time places across five age groups.

  • Infants – six weeks to 18 months
  • Toddlers – 18 months to 30 months
  • Pre-Kindy – 30 months to four years
  • Kindy – four years to five years

Infants, Toddlers, Pre-Kindy Program: Children may be enrolled for any number of days per week.
Kindy Program: Under the Qld Kindergarten Funding Program, children are required to be enrolled for a minimum of two days per week.

Nappies & Care Products

Ensuring our little learners are well cared for and making life for parents a little less busy, all nappies and care products are provided.

StoryPark – Communication Program

We know Mum’s and Dad’s love to stay engaged in their child’s development; at NCC Early Learners, we understand this and know it is vitally important to record and communicate learning as it happens. StoryPark is a private environment where educators will provide photos, video and observations to families in a secure application. Parents can give feedback and personalise their child’s learning.

Kindergarten Program

Kindy is a valuable time for children. Our Queensland government approved kindergarten program assists in developing social skills and emotional well-being while building steps in literacy, numeracy and creativity essential for laying the foundations for future learning and preparing every child for school and beyond.
