Sparrow Early Learning
About Sparrow Early Learning Stones Corner
Welcome to Sparrow Early Learning Stones Corner! We provide early education and care for children aged from 6 weeks to 5 years old in a warm, home-like setting designed to be a continuation of children’s familiar home learning environments.
Inspired by Reggio Emilia philosophy, our educators provide a holistic, play-based curriculum with a strong emphasis on natural elements and outdoor learning experiences. We celebrate each child as unique and focus our programming on meeting the individual needs and interests of each child in our care. Read more.
Indoor learning spaces feel just like home and are filled with materials and resources that come straight from nature and everyday life. Activities are largely open-ended to allow children to follow their interests, use their imagination and stimulate social interactions with their peers and educators.
Adventure and discovery awaits in our shaded outdoor spaces where rocks, logs and wooden climbing structures provide limitless opportunities for unstructured, imaginative play with friends.
Our kindergarten program is based on the Early Years Learning Framework and is led by a qualified and experienced Early Childhood Teacher. An integrated School Readiness Program ensures children are supported to develop the language, literacy, numeracy and social skills required for a smooth transition to school.
Our team warmly welcomes you to enquire and arrange a visit to experience our lovely service for yourself.

Service Manager at Sparrow Early Learning Centre Stones Corner
It was many moons ago when I began my journey in childcare. I started as a volunteer, and throughout the years I worked my way up gaining my Certificate III, onto my Diploma and then finishing with my Advanced Diploma in Childcare; I was happy with what I accomplished over the years while raising my 3 children.

The people I have met along the way and the experiences that I have gained while working in various services, has contributed to my learning and understanding of this ever-changing industry.
We are all aware that the environment is the third Teacher. Therefore, I believe it is our duty as Educators, Teachers and Directors to provide welcoming environments for children to be able to learn in. This is done through play, exploration, positive experiences and positive guidance. Children are our future and as such they are active, capable and valued members of our community and we are here to help guide them.
The Sparrow Way.
The Sparrow Way combines proven international early learning methods to create a unique practice designed for today’s society. Guided by the principles of Reggio Emilia and underpinned by The Early Years Framework for Australia, we embrace children’s inherent abilities to learn and develop, creating an environment for them to find solutions through exploration, discovery and invention.
Our childcare centre in Stones Corner promotes an open-door policy where families can visit and walk through the centre at any time during operational hours.
Once families have completed a tour, they will receive an enrolment pack with all necessary paperwork.
Once enrolled, the orientation process begins. The orientation process is an arrangement made between families and staff that supports the family’s needs.
Accessing the Childcare Subsidy
We understand that access to the Government Childcare Subsidy is an important consideration when choosing a childcare centre. Learn more about eligibility, how to access the subsidy and how Sparrow works with your family to ensure a smooth transition into early learning childcare.
Happy families at Sparrow Early Learning Centres
“A lovely centre where educators value children’s well-being and learning. Lovely spaces and children are valued and respected. Highly recommended!”
“We are really happy with this centre and our child really enjoys attending this centre. Staff is very friendly and the staff gives you the feeling they really care about their work with the children there. Children get a chance to play outside (covered with shades) a lot and to engage in individual and group activities. Every day the educators provide different set activities for the children to keep helping them to develop new skills/provide new experiences for them.”
