We aim to provide high quality early childhood education which values and supports the principles of our philosophy and create a rich learning environment.
We believe that all children should be able to grow and learn in an environment that is safe, stimulating and age appropriate. Children should be provided with opportunities to plan, make choices and develop a sense of independence and confidence in their own abillities.
We believe in offering an environment that is welcoming, homely, nurturing, educational and free from bias to all children, families, educators and visitors to our centre.

All staff at Mary Street are committed to providing a child based and child centred program that caters for each and every child that attends our service.
We work closely with families to form a respectful open and communicative relationship. This enables us to construct learning experiences that gradually expand children's knowledge and understanding of the world.
Our Centre backs onto the park in Mary Street and opposite Birkdale State School.
There is always something to see and the children love searching for the large lizards and ducks that waddle past with their new little ducklings
The park is a short walk down the street where the children can spend time enjoying the play equipment or going for a walk to see what animals they can find along the creek.
The park provides a great area for Teddy bears picnics, ball games and scavenger hunts.

All families using an approved early childhood facility within Australia may be eligible to apply to Centrelink for Child Care Subsidy (CCS) which can be obtained through the family assistance office. You must meet certain requirements to get CCS. The Child Care Subsidy is a payment from the Australian Government that helps working families with the cost of child care.
