We know it’s important to keep up to date with the latest in early childhood knowledge and practice. How lucky are we to have an owner (Matthew Stapleton) who has professional relationships with experts in the field, including several at Charles Sturt University, who wrote the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF)!
Learning happens best when great leaders inspire others. As Educational Leader, Matthew promotes innovative programs which inspire teachers and which children love. Come and see for yourself.
Centres that achieve top exceeding ratings implement best practice. We know what best practice is because Matthew trains countless services across Australia to implement practices like those at Dubbo Early Learning Centre.
We know a smooth transition to big school is the foundation of your child’s future success. That’s why Matthew has co-designed our school readiness program with school teachers to ensure children have the skills and knowledge to transition to school with ease.
Children learn best when they feel secure. Our home visit program helps us really get to know your family and child and helps us settle your children quickly into our service.
Children reach their potential when learning is fun. Our play based curriculum is based on children’s interests and strengths. It’s amazing what children can learn when we explore things that have meaning in their lives.
Children achieve wonderful learning outcomes when activities and experiences reflect their everyday lives. We include lots of experiences involving your child’s family, outside activities and community in our program. This also helps to build identity and a sense of connection to the world.
Young children play to learn – so we integrate learning around things like phonics, numeracy, social and problem solving informally but strategically into our fun filled activities.
Children learn when they use their imagination and creativity. Our innovative environments appeal to every child – and lots of adults too! Come, explore, discover.
Safety is our first priority. Our children are precious.
Children can quickly get into trouble so teachers are always actively involved in children’s activities and play.
Children love to climb, swing and explore. We make sure our play spaces and equipment comply with best practice safety standards.
We know some children can’t eat certain foods. No problem! Our menu caters for allergies and anaphylaxis.
We understand children’s limited language may affect their behaviour. We look out for each child’s needs and teach them to treat others with care, empathy and respect.
We know supervision and safety go hand in hand. We have more teachers than the number required by Law.
We know qualified staff improve safety outcomes. All our teachers and staff members have current first aid qualifications and child protection clearances.
Our children learn a lot from messy play, but our centre is pristine. We keep to strict cleaning and maintenance schedules to ensure a superior level of hygiene at all times.
We see ourselves as part of your community.
Our children live in the community so our curriculum reflects community events and activities like the Dubbo Dream Festival.
Our families contribute to the local community and we welcome and encourage them to contribute to our Centre community. We love your feedback, suggestions and involvement in curriculum activities.
Our business is part of the community so we have a 100% shop local policy for our suppliers and services providers.
Our staff and teachers come from the community and we value all local cultures. Our Indigenous staff help us integrate local Aboriginal culture and customs into our learning and practices.

I would just like to pass on how pleased I was to receive the girls Portfolio’s. What a tremendous effort by the staff to capture such detailed observations of the children given their busy days! I have worked in the Childcare industry and know the overtime that goes into compiling them, and for that I am very appreciative. The girls have absolutely blossomed in Nursery 3, and I am truly amazed by the new things they learn each day.
Our twin boys have been attending Dubbo Early Learning Centre for three years now and they LOVE it!!! We have peace of mind that the staff take very good care of them and we know they are safe. We would not hesitate in recommending Dubbo early Learning Centre to any parents looking for a day care centre that treats children like their own.
For us, choosing a day care centre was incredibly difficult! Having worked in a few very unprofessional centres myself, we had previously opted for other types of care for our children and I wasn’t keen to send either of them to a centre at all. However, we were impressed from the moment we walked into Dubbo Early Learning, Candy and her fantastic team were so happy, warm and open. Both children settled from day one with no tears, in fact, we had tears when it was time to go home. …
Initially we were very hesitant on putting our 10 month old twins into Daycare. Dubbo Early Learning Center were friendly and welcoming and have since been very supportive of our new journey. Our girls are loving their daycare experience and so are we. The staff continuously show their passion and dedication to early education. We are a very happy family looking forward to the many years to come with Dubbo Early Learning Centre.
