Here at Sparrow Early Learning Victoria Point, we pride ourselves on our great relationships with our families and community, and we welcome their contributions in all areas of learning, including service decisions. We like to work with our families as co-educators and we greatly value their input as we believe that families are the first teachers of their children.
We are passionate about our community involvement and making a positive difference to demonstrate the change we want to see in the world.
Our service has a loving, warm environment where children can feel safe, secure and supported during their time with us. We acknowledge each child is unique and let all children learn and develop at their own pace.
All of our Educators are qualified and passionate about Early Childhood Education and Care. They aim to provide the best quality care in all areas of the National Quality Standards and work alongside the children as co-learners to achieve learning and developmental outcomes for all children through child-led, play-based learning. We are passionate about Early Education and the positive impact it has on the children we care for. We collaborate with families to provide all children with the foundations for life-long learning so they can become the best they can be.
Alongside our team, we have a qualified Early Childhood Teacher who delivers a government approved Kindergarten Program to our kindergarten age children.

Service Manager at our Childcare Centre, Victoria Point
I believe that it does take a village to raise and guide young children to be long life learners and prepare them for the future. I have been a part of that village for over 20 years now and it is the most rewarding profession. Read more.
As a service manager there are so many moments of the day that I look forward to. Sharing in learning with the children, receiving those spontaneous hugs, high fives and smiles from our friends and observing the strong relationships that we have built with each of them.
I thrive on collaborative interaction with our educators and families about children’s development, sharing new ideas and knowledge, and mentoring and guiding practices for high quality care and education. I believe that building strong relationships with families and working in unison is how we can get the best outcomes for each child, as you are the children’s primary carers.
Children are so unique and have so much to teach us if we give them the time and be present with them and allow them to be present in their play, give them opportunities to explore their environments and express their creativity. Play is the highest form of education and I believe that our role as educators is to engage in play with our children – supporting and fostering all domains of their development. This is when the best unintentional teaching happens.
As educators we believe in trusting children to be confident in their abilities and encourage risks within play. Our indoor/outdoor environments are engaging and play an important role as the third teacher using provocations and invitations to learning.
We look forward to meeting you and embarking on an early learning journey with your family. We hope Sparrow Early Learning Victoria Point can be your home away from home.

Happy families at Sparrow Early Learning Centre Victoria Point
“We went for a tour, and I have to say it’s the best tour we had. Started with a warm greeting while we’re at the car park with a cranky baby and walk out of the tour with a happy baby. Christine, the manager is amazing at explaining what goes on in the centre and the enrolment process. The educators, Tracey and Suzanne was very informative and gave me a sense of reassurance as a first time parent that my baby will be in safe capable hands. Love the centre and the experienced cheerful staff members🥰. Looking forward to enrolling my baby soon.”
“My family and I have nothing but great compliments about Victoria point sparrow. Such a great learning and creative space for your children with great activities and a variety of educational learning. Would recommend the centre.
I would also like to acknowledge the Staff and management. Without the management, educators and our personal chef our children would not prosper within their educational learning and self confidence within themselves to interact with other children that prepares them for schooling in the future. Also our Coordinator Christine she has such professionalism for first and formost the children and parents. Which is a quality that you don’t see in a lot of Coordinator’s and centre’s. And also gives 110% to the centre and her educators. And then their is our chef who’s menu’s is absolutely delicious and appropriate for all of the children. It is a well organised menu which takes a lot of thought and time because of different allergies and many other things.”
