Every child who comes into our centres is unique, so we take care to acknowledge and treat them as the individual they are. We support your child to develop their own identity and understanding of the world by creating a sense of belonging, being and becoming. Your child’s development is at the core of what we do. Through play-based learning, we explore their interests and strengths, encouraging them to develop holistically and cultivate essential cognitive, emotional and social skills. All of Wanslea’s curricula, principles and practices are based on the Early Years Learning Framework, and our service quality is based on the National Quality Standard.
Wanslea’s strong Western Australian history, family-focused staff initiatives and supportive culture allow us to attract and retain exceptional educators in our centres. Every Wanslea educator is qualified and experienced in creating safe, respectful relationships that build trust with the children in their care. Our staff practise intentional teaching, listening to each child’s needs; encouraging them to persist in the face of challenges; enabling them to take the lead in their learning, and offer safe opportunities for them to make their own choices.
Children learn best when they have the opportunity to engage all of their senses. Our centres are designed to provide a range of sensory play experiences, both indoors and outdoors. From cooking to gardening, painting to music, there are lots of fun, confidence-building, hands-on experiences to engage your child in our centres. We take a holistic approach ensuring all aspects of your child’s development is supported.
We are committed to diversity and inclusion. We respect the culture, lifestyle choices and abilities of each child and their family, providing inclusion support for children who need this. By offering educational programming that provides opportunities to engage with people and activities from a range of backgrounds and cultures, we aim to inspire acceptance and belonging. Each child in our care is encouraged to embrace diversity with curiosity and wonder.
We recognise your family as the first and most influential educator of your child, so our educators develop respectful relationships with your family. From your home to our centre, every child benefits from familiar and consistent routines and practices. We encourage families to take an active role in their child’s learning and communicate regularly with parents to ensure that we’re creating routines that are similar and supportive of one another. We also have an online forum for you to follow your child’s learning journey.

Once we receive and review your application, we will be in touch to let you know whether there is a place available for your child. If the centre is full, we will put you on our waitlist and will contact you when a place is available.
Once your place is confirmed, we encourage you to contact your centre to arrange orientation visits. These visits allow parents and children to get to know the people and the sights, sounds and smells of the new environment.
