WELCOME TO ALPHABET CHILDCARE FOUNDATION
We provide comprehensive, personalized, quality services to professionals, the community, parents and children.
We pride ourselves on our highly qualified and caring Educators at Early Learning. Bringing together a team of certified early childhood education specialists, our Educators are dedicated to and passionate about providing your child with the best start in life.

EVERY DAY WE…
Support learning through play, creative opportunities and exceptional educational experiences. Build community connections and relationships that are both genuine and respectful. Celebrate moments, milestone and every little victory through a shared spirit of generosity.
REGGIO EMILIA CURRICULUM
At Alphabet Childcare Foundation, we are committed to forming genuine, nurturing relationships with your child, and focus on their unique interests and learning styles to support their development in a way that is meaningful and enjoyable for them. We are proud to accompany children on their adventures as they learn more about the world around them and their place within it, and strive to optimize their development during their time with us.
We understand that every child learns at their own pace and have carefully curated a curriculum which is flexible to accommodating your child’s changing needs. Inspired by the educational philosophies of Reggio Emilia, Alphabet Childcare Foundation approach focuses on empowering children to express themselves through the hundred languages that they possess. With communication, sustainability and wellbeing at the heart of all that we do, we encourage your child’s ability to wonder and inquire. Passionate about the important roles imagination and discovery play in early childhood learning, we believe that through an exploration of creative expression children can immerse all their senses in a voyage of joyous self-discovery.
All the moments in a young child’s day matter and we ensure each and every one spent in our care is filled with love. Specially designed with a range of safety features and age-appropriate activities, our nursery is a place where your baby can freely learn about the world in a cosy, safe environment.
We know that big changes happen during this time and our team of Educators welcome each toddler with open arms and patience—one wobbly step at a time. With your input, we give toddlers a safe environment to explore and learn at their own pace.
In the years before school, children grow rapidly in their understanding of the world and their place in it. With a nurturing focus on your child's wellbeing, our School Readiness Program provides your child with a range of learning opportunities involving nature, literacy, numeracy, emotional development, confidence building, social engagement and more.
We understand that the kindergarten years are critical in preparing your child for a lifetime of learning. Communicating with you every step of the way, we take special care in creating a comfortable learning space where children can explore and experiment through interest-led play.
We have expanded our offerings to include Vacation Care in addition to Out of School Care (before & after school) to provide families with older siblings a safe, supportive center that conveniently caters for all ages.
