Welcome to Excellent Education & Care

Excellent Education & Care ELC is a small private centre providing high quality education and care for Children from the age of 6 weeks to 5 years.

We see children as confident and involved learners, whose rights are paramount. The children at our centre are seen as unique and capable individuals who come to our service with their own talents, skills and ideas. We seek to value and empower these.

We believe that the education and care service is responsible for providing secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships towards children. At Excellent Education & Care we have a beautiful, passionate team of early childhood educators who are committed to providing a warm and safe environment for all who cross our threshold. Our educators are respectful of children’s unique individuality, personality and ability, creating environments and programs that inspire and engage. Our team motivated to go above and beyond for our childcare community, our educators love working with children and we pride ourselves on establishing strong and sustainable connections with all families who join us

We are committed to equity and believe in all children’s capacities to succeed, regardless of diverse circumstances and abilities. We respect diversity and believe all children should be instilled with this belief, and acknowledge that is only through ongoing learning and reflective practice that we are able to provide a better service.

    What can I say about Excellent Education? Words can not describe how appreciative I am for the care they have given my two children over the last few years. I have been nothing but impressed with the educational experiences provided to both of my children. The centre is clean and bright and the staff are beyond caring and loving. My children love to attend the centre on their days and often ask me if they can go other days. Thanks for all you do Excellent Education.

    Educators are welcoming, warm and passionate. Like family to my child. She often talks about the educators and other children at the centre. Very happy that we decided to place her here when we first moved to Bentleigh.

    My grandson has throughly enjoyed his kinder year. They have stimulated and nurtured his interests. They are caring and give each child individual attention.

    A small centre with an enormous heart. Both of my children attend EEC and from the moment you walk in, you are greeted warmly and with care. The Educators are passionate about what they do and truly adore the children. Many centres have a business like feel to them but EEC is the complete opposite. The atmosphere is home-y, the food freshly prepared on site by a dedicated cook and there’s plenty of happy activity going on. The low staff turnover means consistency for my children; ensuring they feel safe and secure away from home. I have never had any doubt that they are in good hands at EEC.

    Our family has been with this lovely little centre for many years. We had both of our children here. We came across the centre by driving past it and noticing that it looked like a renovated house. But when we walked in for our first tour, it felt more like a home. A home away from home – this is what really made it stand out from the rest! Not only are the educators filled with warmth but they really acknowledge your children for who they are. Warmth, nourishment and exploration in the earlier years and more of an educational focus in the older kinder years provided the perfect balance for the developmental needs of our children. Beyond delicious, the food is prepared by a qualified cook and mother within the community. Our children loved the food and we loved what was served! Wholesome and nutritious. Our family required a lot of flexibility and understanding and we felt very supported by the administration department any time we needed to make changes to our days in care. Low turn over in children and staff provided an environment of consistency, assisting in our children to feel safe in the routine and rhythm of the weeks, months and years spent there. We will miss our time with you now that our children are off to school.

    Love, Polly, Chris, Audrey and Liesel.

    I can’t recommend better child care centre for my 19 month old son. The staff are amazing and caring. Leina is amazing and she helps every time you need help. Simply great.

    We sent our third son to this Excellent Education & Care for a little over a year (before commencing ELC3 at school) and was overwhelmed by the quality and value of the center. We had our other son at a Bambini Childcare the prior year and I can say one thing… it doesn’t matter how new a childcare center looks, it can’t beat the quality and experience of the long term staff and educators at Excellent Education & Care. I will miss you guys immensely.
