About Us

Silverlea Early Childhood Services prides itself on the philosophy of the service and our long history supporting children and families in our local area. 

 

The Board, Educators and staff try not only to meet the needs of the individual child, but also the family as a whole and complete unit, by liaison with the relevant support networks to seek appropriate assistance on behalf of families as the need of the child arises.

 

By the setting of specific learning objectives and constant monitoring of programs, the service provides an effective, professional and vital service with the support of therapists.
