Our Mission is to support, nurture and encourage children’s strengths through our play based environment, where children feel empowered to seek out their own learning.
Mitchell Street’s unique philosophy believes in the benefits of providing holistic approaches through learning experiences for all our children in a child safe, caring and nurturing environment. Mitchell Street’s values incorporate the need to honour the family, nurture our children and care for our environment through the use of sustainable practices. We encourage children and families to be active participants in our curriculum.
Mitchell Street ELC offers a nurturing environment providing high quality care and education within a natural setting. Children are encouraged to explore their environment, using their imagination, creativity and individuality. We believe that through developing a sense of belonging and providing opportunity for children to be children they will become confident learners.

We are strong advocates for child Safe Standards and child protection.Our Centre is designed to feel familiar and home like for your children.
