Early Learning Centre

The St. Michael’s College Early Learning Centre is under the Direction of (Mrs Sue Weymouth), however; the College Principal, Mr Chris Allom plays an integral part of the management of the Early Learning Centre.                                                                

Our logo (above) reflects the four pillars of learning that is adopted by the College, and we have interpreted these for our youngest members of the St. Michael’s College Community.

  • The Child reading the book represents the Academic growth of the child.
  • The Heart in the tree represents the Spiritual growth of the child.
  • The Paintbrush represents the Cultural growth of the child.
  • The Ball represents the Physical Growth of the child.

We invite you to take a moment to explore the wealth of information available below or call in and visit our beautiful Early Learning facility.
