Manningham Road Early Learning & Kinder


Child Care Centre Bulleen

Manningham Road Early Learning and Kinder offers child care in Bulleen a warm and welcoming atmosphere for young children and their families. Our highly qualified and passionate educators provide an extensive educational curriculum to foster active and confident learners. Our thoughtfully designed environments include inviting indoor spaces and natural backyards built to challenge and support your child’s abilities. We look forward to welcoming you to the Manningham Road Early Learning and Kinder family!

At our centre, you will find:

  • Our Bachelor qualified Kinder Teacher is keen to not only get your child school-ready, but to work in partnership you to build a resilient and caring child who is ready to embrace the world.
  • Our onsite cook is making fresh and nutritious meals to fuel your child’s body and mind. We provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late supper to support your child’s learning and play all day.
  • Our environments are purposefully designed to meet every child at their unique point of development. We understand not every child or family is the same, and our learning spaces reflect that. Like you, we wonder who they will be if we offer them the best start in life…
  • Our holistic curriculum is designed to achieve not only school readiness, but to nurture thoughtful, understanding and tolerant young citizens in a way that makes learning fun. Who knows what amazing ideas lie in these young minds?
  • When we say open-door policy, we mean it. We are here to support families in every way we can. Whenever you need to talk, we are here to listen.

Our fully-funded, all day Kindergarten program is led by a Bachelor trained Early Childhood Teacher. We offer a stimulating curriculum with the aim of building confident and active learners. Using a holistic approach to education, we combine school readiness programs with learning experiences to foster the social and emotional development of young children. Our integrated indoor/outdoor curriculum is child-directed and seeks to engage children in meaningful learning experiences that get them excited about learning and confident to commence their formal education journey.

Meet our Director: Lucas Tho

Hello, my name is Lucas and I am the Director of Manningham Road Early Learning and Kinder. Being in the Early Childhood Education and Care industry since 2013 in Adelaide has given me the opportunity to grow and learn through the journey of being an assistant, team leader, inclusion support Educator, 2IC and now a Director. As the Centre Director at Manningham Road, it is my passion to deliver quality care to the children, and quality support to the families, through imparting that to our team. I strongly believe that building trusting relationships with both children and the families lays a strong foundation to support children’s learning and development. Our team at the centre aim to create an inclusive and fun environment, providing meaningful play-based experiences for all children that will both challenge them and extend their learning.  I look forward to meeting you and your family and giving you a tour of our lovely centre.
