About our centre

Wonderschool Dickson is an Early Learning Centre that encourages diversity, respect and discovery during this important stage of children’s lives.

We look forward to welcoming children aged 6 weeks – 5 years and their families seeking an exceptional learning environment with contemporary approaches to early childhood.

We know that children take what they learn from their earliest experiences, and that these experiences mold their futures.

Every day at Wonderschool is a chance for exploration, discovery, education, nurturing relationships, connecting with the environment, and being present in the moment. We encourage a sense of curiosity, intrigue and wonder through our learning experiences.

At Wonderschool Dickson, your children will discover, learn and play in a brand-new purpose-built early learning centre, with light-filled rooms, large open classrooms, and an expansive outdoor play area waiting to be discovered by little hands and big minds.

This is a brand-new early childhood service located in the suburb of Dickson in Canberra’s north. You and your child can find us on Challis Street.

We understand your desire to stay connected with your child and keep up to date with their learning and progress. At Wonderschool, we don’t rely on technology to do this, with no apps or online updates on your child.

Our focus is on providing authentic, one-one-one assessments on your child every six months in line with The Early Years Framework (2009). Relationships are at the core of everything we do. We use moments during drop off and pick up to keep you informed of your child’s day.

Enriching learning experiences that help build communities, for example your child can go on local walks in the surrounding suburbs.

Parents are welcome to come in and share their own skills, such as music education or cultural experiences, with the children.

We are committed to do our part for the environment by utilising sustainable classrooms and teaching the children about responsibility and accountability. We have recycling programs in place along with composting, worm farms and limiting food wastage.

Creative arts are promoted and supported so your child will have opportunities to express themselves through music, movement, painting and sculpture.

All of our meals are made from scratch and cater to all children from our commercial kitchen. The menu is in keeping with Nutrition Australia and modified to meet our children’s dietary and cultural needs.

Nutritious meals prepared on site by our cook:

  • Breakfast
  • Morning tea
  • Lunch
  • Afternoon tea
  • Late snack
  • S26 formula

Also included for our families:

  • Nappies
  • Sudocrem
  • Sun cream
  • Bed linen
  • A service operating under the National Quality Framework
  • Two comprehensive summative assessments per year
  • Qualified early childhood professionals

At Wonderschool, our vision is to create connected communities that empower children to change the world. We do this with our wonderful team of educators and support staff that are passionate about educating and supporting children.
