A message from our Centre Director

My name is Dani-Elle and I am proud to be the Centre Director at Chifley Early Learning Centre. I have been at the centre for over three years now, and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I am honoured and excited to be in a role where I can support our children and their families through this fundamental stage of their lives.

We believe in taking a holistic approach to early learning. We place great importance on creating a warm and nurturing environment where every child feels important, safe, and supported. Your child’s surroundings play an essential role in helping them shape and make sense of their world. With this in mind, we have created an environment that is devoted to allowing your child to explore and build the strong foundations needed to become a successful lifelong learner.

We believe excellent parent communication is an essential building block in ensuring every child’s needs are met. Our friendly staff work with each other and with our parents, ensuring every child has the support needed for a successful learning journey with us.

One of the ways we support your child’s individual learning journey is through special activities and excursions centred around their interests. I love that our children can explore our diverse community through our range of excursions to iconic landmarks such as the Sydney Opera House, and build on their connection of Australian history through visits to the Botanic Gardens where they learn about Aboriginal heritage and the Gadigal people by talking with Aboriginal elders.

I am excited to begin this journey with you and your family. My whole team and I look forward to welcoming you to our Chifley Early Learning Centre family.

What our parents say

Our son started at Chifley ELC when he was 11 months old. Whilst it’s a big adjustment returning to work and choosing the right care for your child, we have been so impressed with the centre and felt comfortable leaving him there from an early age. The educators are so caring and nurturing and genuinely look after the well-being of our child. Plus I have been impressed with the flexibility and understanding of the centre director when I wanted to pick up extra days or change days. Other centres I have dealt with have been shocking on the admin side which makes it really challenging for busy working parents. Would recommend Chifley to any families looking for care for their child in the CBD.

My daughter has been a student at CELC for 2.5 years and loves it. She has developed great social skills and educational fundamentals ahead of starting kindergarten in a year’s time. The teachers provide a nurturing, safe, fun but also challenging environment for the kids and my daughter has strong connections with all of them. I’m very grateful to Dani-Elle and her team for the care and support they have provided to her over the years.
