Early Learning Centres
Mary MacKillop North Queensland Early Learning centres have been operating in the Diocese since 2004. As part of the Church commitment to family life the Diocese decided to establish Catholic Childcare Centres under the patronage of Blessed Mary MacKillop, renowned for her care of families and children.
There are six St Mary MacKillop Early Learning Centres in the Townsville Diocese.
The centres cater for babies through to children of six years and provide the following:
- Professional, quality educational program for children
- Kindergarten program (for children who are least 4 years of age by the 30th June in the year they attend)
- A comfortable environment for parents
- A loving, safe and nurturing environment that will allow children to grow and develop at their own pace
- Professional staff that respect the individuality of children and their families
- A Catholic environment that values the spirituality of children
We welcome children and families of all faiths and backgrounds. You are welcome to phone or visit our facilities at any time - we look forward to meeting you.
