Welcome to The Learning Terrace Early Education, Care & Preschool

The Learning Terrace early education, care & Preschool is proud to be a provider of leading innovative education and care in Raymond Terrace, in the beautiful Port Stephens.

We offer 6 beautifully designed and curated learning studios and a before and after school care space. We take up to 109 children a day. We believe that all children deserve a centre that offers challenge, supports and respects their need for exploration, curiosity, connection and creativity.


Providing Quality Care At Raymond Terrace..

We provide the highest quality care for children aged from 6 weeks to 12 years. As part of our philosophy, we are focused on establishing nurturing environments and experiences for children that build upon their strengths and interests as they transition to school and the wider community.

As a family-owned centre, we love getting to build meaningful relationships and become part of your family. We’re committed to providing quality care and welcoming you to our beautiful centre.

We take a holistic approach to early development, providing home-style spaces where young ones will feel comfortable, nurtured and supported. Our program is all about nurturing your child’s unique personality and interests – with seven learning studios to choose from which are tailored to various stages of development.

We’re also passionate about encouraging healthy eating and nutrition so that your little ones can truly become their best selves. Healthy eating is a cornerstone to your child’s growth, wellbeing and development – and our daily menu provides fresh, healthy meals that provide balance and essential nutrients for growing little bodies. After all, they’re going to need fuel to stay active! We also grow fresh vegies on-site.

Learning Through Outdoor Play

We provide an indoor-outdoor program that is designed to offer children opportunities to explore all aspects of learning. These spaces invite open-ended exploration and play, encouraging risk taking, interactions and discoveries of their world.

Our centre is surrounded by leafy, natural bushland. We have a large outdoor learning environment, where children are encouraged to make sense of their world through a range of play-based learning experiences.

We want children here at The Learning Terrace to be able to develop a deep connection and appreciation for Worimi Land. We believe in a child’s right to have access and freedom to play in nature and outdoor play spaces, in all safe weather conditions.


Our Happy Families

Heres what a couple of our families have to say about our centre. For more of our 5 star reviews, take a look on Google and Facebook.

5 Stars! Our little one year old has just started at this family oriented centre. They genuinely care about the children in their care and look at each one as an individual instead of just a group of kids like other centres. They are truly a little family and we are so glad to be apart of it. Caring, affordable, safe and a great learning experience that will take your child’s strengths and help them flourish 😊 Thanks for providing a pioneer in early childhood education! This is the future of care (and hopefully all education) ❤️

My twins are looked after, comfortable and treated with respect and kindness. With smaller ratio numbers that help with individual attention being paid to each child. Outdoor and indoor spaces are of a very high quality and well defined for play and learning. Definitely cheaper than some other centres too. I am very happy with this centre.
