Sparrow Early Learning
About Sparrow Early Learning Thornlie
At Sparrow Early Learning Thornlie we provide early education and care for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years in a fun, happy, safe and stimulating environment. We are a warm and welcoming boutique Service offering only 44 places. Inspired by Reggio Emilia philosophy and guided by the Early Years Learning Framework, our educators provide a holistic, play-based curriculum with a strong emphasis on nature and outdoor learning experiences.
We celebrate each child as unique and our dedicated educators focus programming on meeting the individual needs and interests of each child. Family involvement and participation are highly encouraged and fostered at our Service. We value families as our co-educators and encourage them to participate in all aspects of our Service and their children’s learning. 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.
Engaging outdoor spaces provide further opportunities for imaginative and collaborative play with children enjoying the unstructured open spaces, quiet shady areas, sandpits and bike track, under the protection of shade sails.
We welcome families to arrange a tour to experience our warm and inviting service firsthand.

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 Thornlie 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 Centre Thornlie
“Such a lovely bunch of educators, who go above and beyond for all. Feels like a Sparrow family especially since it’s a smaller service and the educators get to know all the families and vise versa.”
“It makes my days at work far easier knowing that I’m leaving my girl in such great hands. All the educators are so kind and welcoming and they run a wonderful learning program. My daughter has thrived in this environment. The girls in the babies room have helped her grow since she was 4 months old, she loves them and I can’t recommend this centre enough!”
