 About Mission Australia Early Learning

Early childhood is a time of discovery and growth, which is why Mission Australia Early Learning centres are designed to encourage a sense of belonging, wellbeing and community. Our centres offer much more than quality childcare for children aged from six weeks to six years. They also set children up for a lifelong love of learning and nature.

Mission Australia is a Christian community service organisation with a nationwide team of over 2,900 that helps people to regain their independence.
