About Sparrow Early Learning Somerville Cottage

Sparrow Early Learning Somerville Cottage is an early learning centre located in Somerville on the Mornington Peninsula. It was originally built as a doctor’s surgery with a garden designed by famous landscape gardener, Edna Walling. Read more.

We provide care and education for children from 6 weeks through to school age. Our centre prides itself on a warm friendly atmosphere that has often been referred to as an extension of the home. We aim to provide care that compliments and extends the home life, supporting families to meet their child’s needs to the best of our ability.

Our natural setting adds to the extension of home life, where the children are able to explore nature and be challenged by their investigations.

Our relationships with families and children is of utmost importance to us and we strive to support our families and children to feel part of our Somerville Cottage family.

Service Manager at Sparrow Early Learning Somerville Cottage

“Hello, my name is Cassie and I am the Service Manager at Sparrow Early Learning Somerville Cottage. As a mother to three beautiful boys myself, I can appreciate how difficult the journey can be for parents looking to access an early learning service for their children and I understand that each child is unique and special in their own way.” Read more.

I have been developing my career in Early Childhood Education for 14 years, 7 of those in management role with Sparrow Early Learning. As a manager I work alongside my team guiding and mentoring to ensure we are providing the highest quality care, and all children’s and our family’s needs are met.

I believe that children are our leaders of tomorrow and it is our responsibility to ensure their education and relationships set them on a journey for success.

Children are at the heart of everything we do, and we want to encourage each child to be strong, confident, and independent beings to give them the best possible start in life.

At Sparrow Early Learning Somerville, we go above and beyond to accommodate your child and your family in a calming safe place. We encourage curiosity, exploration and investigation through natural environments and encourages growth and challenges through experiences and interactions.

We look forward to meeting and welcoming you to our home away from home.
