Welcome to NCC Early Learners Nambour

NCC Early Learners is a vibrant and enthralling Nambour day care centre on the edge of Nambour Christian College at Woombye with its own private entrance for easy drop-offs for parents. The centre is in a wonderfully quiet and picturesque setting, surrounded by NCC’s working farm, animals, blossoming orchard and vegetable gardens, along with its own learn-to-swim pool – NCC Early Swimmers.

Opened in 2014 this facility was awarded a Queensland design award for its inspiring fit-for-purpose design.

NCC Early Learners is one of the few Nambour day care centres to offer parents the advantage of children being able to attend the same educational institution from six weeks of age hrough to Year 12 – because of the pathway to Nambour Christian College.

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

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, and 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.

Onsite Farm & Animals

NCC early learners centre is surrounded by the NCC Berakah Farm, a five acre working farm with cattle, miniature horses, chickens, honey bees including blossoming orchards and vegetable gardens. Our early learners love to spend time with the animals, feeding and patting the miniature horses and learning about how to care for the animals.

The children enjoy a hands-on approach to nutrition as they get their hands dirty learning how to grow delicious fruit and vegetables and experience eating a variety of fresh seasonal produce. As the children are encouraged to enjoy spending time outdoors and looking after the natural environment, they learn plant names and successfully harvest edible plants.

Gardens can be used to integrate science, mathematics, language, arts, history, environmental studies, nutrition and health into fun learning activities for children. A totally unique experience for early learners, giving NCC early learners another early advantage.

In addition to our onsite farm where there are beef cattle and the Berakah Miniatures Show Horses, our centre has guinea pigs and chickens that our Early Learners learn to care for and understand the importance of animal safety and care.

Our Learning Program includes cultural development (music, art, indigenous culture), Sports and Swimming, Christian values, Excursions, Incursions (Guest educational visits to the centre) and Bush Kindy, developed in partnership with NaturePlay Queensland. You can discover more about our Learning Program here.

Our Nambour Day Care program is delivered by centre staff supported by head office executives who are also based on site.
