Our Story

Discovery Early Learning Centres is a Tasmanian family owned and operated organisation with extensive experience in providing high quality education and care programs for children across Tasmania. Our services are located in the surrounding suburbs of Hobart, Launceston, Ulverstone and Burnie.

We offer Long Day Care, Preschool programs and Outside School Hours Care including, Before School, After School and Vacation Care. We understand every family has different needs and, with this in mind, we offer care on a full time or part time basis. Occasional care and casual care is available where a vacancy exists.

We are dedicated to providing high quality early education programs for children in a safe, secure, challenging and nurturing environment that is rich, flexible and encourages learning, curiosity, creativity and exploration.

Our Vision

Our vision is to shape the future for children, families, educators and our communities.

We are guided by a clear set of values: imagine, explore and discover.

Imagine: We understand the value of nurturing a child's imagination, interests and strengths. We aim to create moments rich with learning and engagement, while embracing spontaneity and fun. By valuing imagination in everyday play, we instil children with a sense of natural curiosity for learning.

Explore: At Discovery, exploration is key. Through social interactions and learning experiences, children are encouraged to explore culture, community and self identity. Children explore natural play environments, take risks and are supported through trusting and respectful relationships with educators.

Discover: We understand the value of play as a context for learning through which children are free to express individuality and build foundations for life. Children are provided opportunities to discover confidence and self worth that enable them to develop a curiosity for life long learning.

Our Team

Our team of educators are highly professional, with a diverse range of child care and education qualifications and experience, ensuring a broad base from which to develop successful programs.

We believe that all children have the right to develop secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships with educators and that a caring educator is one who remembers what it is to be a child, respects the diverse values of each child and who willingly joins children on their journey of discovery.

In their nature

It is in our nature to open children's minds to the future through play and to foster their natural curiosity.

At Discovery, children are in their natural environment, exploring spaces where they can be themselves. Childhood is a time for being in the here and now. Children are gently guided through play based learning, to evolve into the best people they can be.

Discovery Early Learning Centres is a natural choice for your child's early education.

We look forward to developing a relationship with your family,

The Discovery Early Learning team
