Our mission

The Mission of Mary Rice Early Learning Centre is to provide excellence in early childhood education and care for all children, in partnership with families.

We aim to provide a natural and sustainable environment that promotes respect, compassion, wellbeing, and a love of learning in every child.

Our model is one where parents and families are valued for their bonds and traditions, their commitment to work, home, community, and dreams for their children.

Parents are viewed as partners, collaborators and advocates for their children’s learning.
