St Mary's Early Learning Centre - St Mary's Girls' School

The Early Years


Early Learning

Our Kindergarten to Year 2 students enjoy innovative educational programs in a fun and supportive environment, where we wholeheartedly embrace diversity. Our staff are committed to offering a stimulating, inquiry-based curriculum that helps our girls achieve outstanding educational outcomes.

Our learning assets underpin everything that we do in Kindergarten to Year 2 and our primary focus is helping students develop the following skills:

Our beautiful campus allows teachers and students to learn in exceptional indoor and outdoor environments. We recognise the importance of balancing learning and play, which allows our students to thrive in an inspiring setting.

Connecting with nature

At St Mary’s, we believe that nature can inspire learning. Our students regularly venture outdoors to connect with nature and develop necessary life skills, including collaborating with others to achieve common goals.

Our Kindergarten to Year 2 students participate in a regular Nature Play Program, and in Terms 2 and 3 they visit the School’s neighbouring Trigg Bushland Reserve on a weekly basis to participate in Bush School. Our Bush School provides our girls with opportunities to hone their problem-solving skills, think creatively and develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of our precious environment. It also offers them a chance to develop their resilience beyond the classroom.

Specialist programs – something for everyone!


Our specialist learning programs are taught by specialist teachers who are not the classroom teacher. 
Each specialist teacher is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about their subject, which enhances our students’ learning experience.

Learn about our enrolment process

St Mary’s is all about girls discovering their best. We want our students to be engrossed in the exploration of ideas, to be self-motivated and self-directed, to delight in trying something new and to contribute positively to the community.
