Lyons Early Learning Centre (ELC) is part of the Lyons Early Childhood School. Children can begin their learning journey in the infant’s room and continue through until Year 2 (8 years of age).
WCS works in partnership with the school principal and executive team to ensure children feel connected to both the ELC and the school. Enrolment transitions from the ELC to preschool and school are smooth and we offer a preschool program that compliments the program offered by the school. Our dedicated educators work alongside the teachers to ensure a positive outcome-based approach for all children.
Lyons ELC is currently rated exceeding the National Quality Standards.
WCS holds a paint and play session at Lyons ELC on Thursday mornings. Cost: gold coin donation. For more information see: Paint and Play.
WCS provides before/after school care and school holiday care for preschool to Year 2 at Lyons Early Childhood School. For more information, see: Lyons Early Childhood School OSHC.
