We are excited to welcome children and parents to our Learning for Life sessions each Wednesday afternoon from 1.30pm - 2.30pm.

At Mount Carmel College our Learning for Life program is part of the Set Up for Success initiative, a free early years program prompting a love for learning for both young children (birth – 5 years) and their families. Children must attend sessions with an adult.

What can you expect from Learning for Life?

Our experienced Early Years staff develop weekly programs to meet the needs of children within our local community, inspired by Christian values. Each week our Learning for Life sessions will support the holistic development of individual children.

As part of the learning experience, parents and carers are responsible for their children at all times during the sessions. Children should wear comfortable and weather appropriate clothing (spare clothes are recommended).

Attending these weekly sessions is a great opportunity to get to know our school and meet some early childhood trained staff. It also gives parents and carers a chance to connect with other families and encourages social skill development in your child.

Are there costs?

There are no costs for attending the program. We kindly ask that all families bring their own drink bottles and snacks.

How do I enrol?
