Maniltoa Children’s Centre is in the final stages of construction in Coolalinga, near the Coolalinga Shopping Centre. The centre has been designed with a natural flow between the indoor and outdoor environments, where children can explore and discover in a play-based learning environment. 

There are four flexible groupings (infants, toddlers, Kinder and Preschool) based on age and developmental observation and children move through spaces in collaboration with families and educators.  The fundamental premise of the design is removing any institutional architecture and creating a home like environment that is warm, welcoming and inspires early learning.   Our curriculum philosophy and belief that children have the right to learn and develop in a caring environment drives the play based educational program.  We will also be offering a Preschool program (for children turning 4 years old before June 30) that will run five days a week from 9am to 2pm with a qualified early childhood teacher. 

For enrolment enquires please fill out the enquiry form on our website  Intake will be staged over August, September and October and will be based on an initial family orientation of the centre with opportunities for you to tell us about your child, ask any questions, have a tour of the centre, discuss our philosophy and educational approach.
