Play-based early education
A child’s play is the foundation of their learning journey and reflects how children experience, explore and examine the world around them while developing social and cognitive skills.
At St Nicholas Early Education, educators work with each child on an individual level to gain an understanding of their wants, needs, interests and strengths in order to extend their learning through play.

Director, St Nicholas Early Education Lochinvar
A Lochinvar local, Elisa is mother to three sons all attending local Catholic Schools.
Elisa has worked in early education for more than eight years over three different services. In addition to working in early education centres, she has also worked within primary schools. Given the diversity of her experience, Elisa brings a wealth of knowledge, understanding and compassion to the St Nicholas family.
As the director of a brand new centre, Elisa had the opportunity to setup the centre prior to its opening. As a result, her personality and early education philosophy has made its way into a number of the exciting natural play elements found at St Nick’s at Lochinvar.
Elisa’s favourite part of working at Lochinvar is greeting families and their children each day and welcoming them to the centre.
