Skippy's Early Learning Centres have been providing the children of Central Queensland with care and learning opportunities since 2007.
At Skippy's we have been laying the foundation for better lives through great early learning experiences from day one and we continue to provide these opportunities for today's children.
From the day a child is born they are learning and our job is to create stimulating, age-appropriate learning experiences and environments that give children a secure base and the confidence to learn and explore.
Our intention is to develop collaborative, respectful partnerships with families, the community and professionals to foster and sustain children's long-term learning and development. We are dynamic advocates for children of early year's education and the dedicated professionals within our field.

our learning frameworks
We use three learning frameworks all specifically designed for specific age groups:
These frameworks guide our practices and teaching with the aim of extending and enriching your child's learning from birth through to their transition to school. We are committed to achieving best practice and pursuing excellence in early education and care through continual evaluation, monitoring and reflection of our daily practices, policies and procedures.
Our Educators have a variety of knowledge, skills and experiences which enhances the education and care that your child receives at Skippy's.
