Defence Families

Connect with their new Community

At Wonderschool we help Defence Families

We have Early Learning Centres in Canberra conveniently located close to Defence housing and the Department of Defence including Russell Offices or formally known as Campbell Park Base. This allows us to engage with many Defence personnel who choose our early learning education, child care services and long daycare facilities.

Families looking for defence childcare services in their new local community can be reassured we have a commitment and experience in understanding the needs of Defence families and their unique circumstances and lifestyle. We know that unexpected postings and quick transitions into a community are part of the defence lifestyle, and we are here to support your family to make those transitions as easy as possible.

As an ADF member and defence family you can expect the following support from Wonderschool Early Learning Centres:

  • Remote tours and phone interviews with the centre director
  • Digital newsletters to update families who are remotely located
  • Priority of access
  • A tailored orientation process based on the needs of the family
  • A supportive and friendly early learning community
  • Social/informative events at the centre held throughout the year

Please contact us to get advice on the nearest centre to where you will be living or working in Canberra, other helpful information about the local area or our early learning childhood education programs and anything else we can do to support your family before, during or after you are posted to the ACT.
