The Early Learning Centre provides the ideal start to your child’s educational journey at Tyndale Christian School. ELC children are an important part of Tyndale Christian School and from enrolment every opportunity is taken to prepare children for transition into our larger school community.
Tyndale Christian School Strathalbyn Early Learning Centre (ELC) offers a Long Day Care and Kindergarten programme for children 3 - 5 years old. We provide a warm Christian environment in which your child is prepared for school academically, physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually under the nurture and care of qualified and dedicated staff.
The ELC has an approved preschool program within the childcare program. The preschool provides a structured, play-based program led by a qualified teacher for children in the year before they attend Reception at school. The program, which runs for at least 15 hours per week, 40 weeks per calendar year, focuses on helping children to develop a wide range of essential skills and prepares them for their transition to school.
Opening hours are from 7:00am – 6:00pm Monday to Friday for 48 weeks per year, with our preschool programme running from 8:45am – 3:15pm during school terms.
The ELC is approved by the Australian Government and you may be eligible for the Child Care Subsidy. This subsidy is paid directly to childcare services to assist families with their childcare fees.
For fees and payment information, please refer to the 2019 Fee Schedule, here.
