Welcome to Giggles Early Learning Centre!
Giggles ELC is a privately owned and operated service by award winning operator Anastasia Papadopoulos since 2008. Our purpose built service operates between the hours of 7am and 6pm for 52 weeks of the year (closed only on Public Holidays). We cater for children between the ages of 6 weeks – 5 years. The service is licensed for 39 children and is accredited against the National Quality Framework.
Giggles ELC a home away from home and our staff are very much considered to be a part of your extended family! We provide all food for the children which is prepared by a qualified chef. Our food and menus are maintained in accordance with nutritional guidelines and family input. We ask families to only provide a yoghurt for their child and a piece of fruit, which is shared as a fruit platter with the children, for morning or afternoon tea. We provide and cater for dietary requirements and the needs of your child. A child’s wellbeing is our number one priority.
From an educational perspective, Giggles ELC follows that National Framework for educating young children in their early years. This is known as the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and a complete Pre-School Readiness Program is in place for children who will be attending primary school. This has been developed over the years in conjunction with local Primary Schools to ensure that each child transitions to “Big School” and is ready for their new journey!
Our service is known to form strong bonds with families and children and also with our community. As such we have a great presence in the St George area not only at this service, but within our sister centre The Little Cottage (Carlton).
