Our Early Learning Centre
Great Lakes Children’s Centre is a community owned not-for-profit Pre-school and LDC centre in Forster, NSW.
We focus on healthy lifestyles – this includes healthy eating (is it good for me), healthy habits (is it good for others), and healthy living (is it good for our environment).

We believe that young children develop and learn through play, and that each child’s early learning is the beginning of life long education and social development.
We believe children are active and capable learners who need opportunities to make choices about play and learning.
Our practices are guided by the Early Years Leaning Framework.
We are a community owned not-for-profit organisation – why not donate to us?
Our current goal is to update the outdoor activies areas.
We are proud to be part of the Worimi community.

Is it good for me?
We provide all parents with guidelines for healthy lunchboxes provided by NSW Health and encourage all children to make health-concious food choice even at home.
Is it good for others?
GLCC encourages children to play in a safe way without restricting their natural curiosities and desire to explore. All child-child and child-carer interaction is inclusive and involves reflection time.
Is it good for the environment?
Sustainability is at the core of our learning at GLCC. We are strong adopters of the “four R’s” – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Repurpose.
