A home away from home.

We’re proud to be part of Hope Valley, home to one of Australia's most harmonious and culturally diverse communities. By working with local schools, we provide the highest quality preschool program to the children in our care.

In a beautiful, safe, home-like environment, we empower children to learn and grow as individuals. We support them with a team of experienced, caring, qualified teachers and educators.

Protecting our planet and being environmentally conscious is a big part of our daily program. Everyone is empowered to participate in sustainability practices to help reduce waste, and one of our most popular activities is gardening.

        I could not ask for a better centre

        I am extremely confident sending my children to Being Ermington. Knowing that each day they are greeted with a smiley face at the door, served a healthy breakfast and then the fun activities start! The educators set goals every 2 months with parents and we all work towards the same goal for our children, it's very effective in making sure their development milestones are achieved. My children love spending their days here. - Kellie

        Warm, passionate and personable educators

        Within weeks we began to notice the difference in the quality of education and care our daughter received at Being. Her social and emotional skills improved significantly. She has also developed  skills in pre-reading and pre-writing through planned activities throughout the day. The educators are great intentional teachers. - Muktar
