Providing a Holistic Approach To Your Child's Development

Sanctuary Early Learning Adventure is a family-owned and operated business with centres in Ashmore, Southport , Buderim, Maudsland, Redlynch and Highfields.  As a team we take pride in our Philosophy which guides our everyday practice and are aligned with our values of Connect, Collaborate and Respect.

We believe in a holistic approach to your child’s development, knowing each child’s experience is individual to them. We balance a calm and nurturing environment with fun-filled creative outlets for them to explore – including sports, dance, art and play! Our program also incorporates a focus on health and wellbeing implementing yoga, meditation and mindfulness practice – this helps develop resilient and well-rounded individuals.

Each of our centres are built to provide children with an environment that enables them to play, explore and learn. Our curriculum is guided by the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines (QKLG), the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), and My Time Our Place (MTOP). Through this we provide fun, interactive learning based programs such as The Gardening Club, Junior Chefs Program and much, much more!

We also embrace modern technology as a way of enhancing observation based teaching and engagement with families; that’s why when you enrol with us, you’ll have access to our Storypark app—follow your child’s journey of discovery and growth!

Quality Childcare For Ages 6 Weeks To 5 Years

We understand that every child is unique and we cater to the individual needs of children from as young as 6 weeks old up to 5 years of age. Our programs are designed to support children’s growth across all developmental domains, including:

  • Babies: Our nurturing caregivers provide a secure and loving environment for your baby to grow, ensuring their needs are met with warmth and responsiveness.

STEAM & The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF)

At Sanctuary Early Learning Adventure, we believe in providing a comprehensive and engaging curriculum that incorporates both STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). This combination ensures our kindergarten program offers:

  • A strong foundation in science, technology, engineering, arts and maths, encouraging problem-solving and critical thinking skills
  • A focus on play-based learning and child-led interests, promoting creativity and self-expression
  • Opportunities for children to develop a sense of belonging, confidence and resilience
  • A supportive environment where children are encouraged to explore, take risks and learn at their own pace


At Sanctuary Early Learning Adventure, we provide quality childcare for children as young as 6 weeks old.

The number of hours a toddler should spend in day care varies based on individual needs and family circumstances. It’s essential to consider factors such as the child’s temperament, family schedule and the quality of the day care environment when making this decision.

The EYLF is an Australian national framework designed to guide early childhood educators in providing quality learning experiences for children aged 0 to 5 years. It focuses on play-based learning and promotes the development of confident, creative and resilient learners.

At Sanctuary Early Learning Adventure, we prioritise the safety and security of all children in our care. Our centres are equipped with modern safety measures, including secure entry systems and our staff are trained in first aid, CPR and child protection procedures.
