Early Learning and Careelc_welcome_image

Every child deserves the best possible start to their education. Catholic Education Tasmania is working with organisations across the state to make access to quality early learning and care easier for more Tasmanian families.

Catholic Education Tasmania is partnering with CatholicCare Tasmania to deliver early learning and care through their Ludo program.

We look forward to collaborating with them to deliver early learning and care!

elc_collageConveniently located on Catholic school sites across Tasmania, play-based early learning and care will be available to Tasmanian families five days a week, 50 weeks a year.

Catholic Education Tasmania seeks to have a positive impact on children's outcomes over the long term. Our early learning and care teams work collaboratively to provide Tasmanian children and their families with a program that will encourage their successful transition into the primary school setting.

Through our program for children aged 3 to 5 years old, families will also have the option to access additional services such as speech therapy and counselling all under one roof.


Physical spaces hold the potential to influence what and how children learn

To achieve successful learning environments, the teacher, teaching and learning space need to work together.

Our Early Years Birth to Year 2 Design Guide supports the development of learning environments that respond to the needs of the learner and the learning community.
