Welcome to Playschool


My name is Bernadette Watson and I am the proud owner of Playschool Early Learning Centres (ELC). I have 25 years teaching experience and hold a Bachelor of Education (primary and early childhood) and I am a qualified Abecedarian Affiliated Trainer and Coach.

Our Centres are certified Abecedarian Early Learning Centres (Abecedarian Approach Australia 3A -The University of Melbourne). The Abecedarian Approach has driven our Playschool ELC team to create a learning environment that promotes intentional and meaningful adult-child interactions. Enriched caregiving, conversational reading and learning games are used to ensure language is a priority and to ultimately improve our children’s educational outcomes and futures.

ESSENCE OF PLAYSCHOOL

Learning environments are created to support the whole child develop.

The Essence of Playschool – Discover the Difference


Play is an instrument in stimulating and shaping a child’s development and learning, so our program has developed a balance between child-centred natural play and adult-led play that is more intentional and structured.  Every corner of every space has an identity and purpose, providing opportunities for a variety of learning experiences.

Learning environments are created to support the whole child develop emotionally, cognitively, socially and physically enabling the child to grow and excel. Our focus on natural, aesthetically inviting environments to engage the young child’s five senses, provoking wonder, curiosity and physical and intellectual engagements.
