Early Learning

Patersonia Early Learning is located at a small childcare facility in Legana designed to meet our needs in the worst of weather or in the afternoon if we need some quiet time.  We take excursions on a regular basis to the parks and reserves. Most of our days are spent in the great outdoors exploring, playing and learning the way nature intended. We also visit places like the library and museum and be part of the community. This is how we are different to your traditional centre, the centre is our backup plan, not our everyday plan. We'll take calculated risks but safety will always be our main priority.

Our current program see Tuesdays spent at Trevallyn Nature Reserve and Wednesdays at Heritage Forest Community Garden. Mondays and Fridays are in the centre and Thursdays vary.

What you Need To Know

We are licensing for up to 21 children and are located at 1 Gerrard Close in Legana. We are approved for Childcare Subsidy.

We offer an Early Learning or preschool program as well as Long Day Care for ages 3 to 5.  

We run an Early Learning Program led by qualified educators that meets National Standards. Our program can be used as an alternative to Tasmania's Kindergarten Year which is not compulsory. We are currently open from 8.00am to 6.00pm with a full day session and a shorter session ending at 3.00pm. If you require something different please discuss your needs with us.

Our fees are offset by the childcare subsidy and are set out in our fee schedule.

Our preschoolers will be able to continue on to Prep in our Primary School opening in 2020 (Subject to registration).
