|Mission||"Spark curiosity, inspire imagination and enlighten to learn. Shape the minds of tomorrow"|
Wagtail Cottage was originally built as a doctor’s surgery back in the early days of Somerville. It was bought and turned into an Early Learning Centre with a garden designed by famous landscape gardener, Edna Walling.
We provide care for children from 6 weeks through to school age. Our centre prides itself on a warm friendly atmosphere that has often been referred to as an extension of the home. We aim to provide and offer care that compliments and extends on the home life, supporting families to meet their child’s needs to the best of our ability.
Our natural setting adds to the extension of home life, where the children are able to explore nature and be challenged by their investigations.
Our relationships with families and children is of utmost important to us and we strive to support our families and children to feel part of our Wagtail family.
We stand out above many centres with our community access program, where the children have the opportunities to access the community in many ways as of the programs within our centre.
