Why Choose Us?

As an independent family-owned and operated centre, we pride ourselves on providing the best early learning in Dubbo. It’s a result of innovative programs in a safe and caring environment.

Hawthorn Street Early Learning Centre has a three-step approach to ensure the best care for your
child. The centre philosophy reflects this. It is:
Keeping children safe
Meeting families’ needs
Improving always.

We link our preschool curriculum to your child’s home and family-based interests. Connecting to the activities that engage your child encourages their learning and development.
We have designed our innovative indoor and outdoor play spaces based on contemporary preschool research. Learning is fun at Hawthorn Street where our play-based activities maximise your child’s educational outcomes.
Hawthorn Street offers a home-visit program for babies and children new to our early learning centre. Our educators form strong bonds with the preschool children and become “part of the family” as your child quickly settles in.
In partnership with teachers, our centre developed a school-readiness program. We teach children the foundations of phonics and core life skills, enabling them to transition from preschool to school with ease.
A Hawthorn Street core focus is affiliation with the community and we’re proud of our 100% shop local policy.
We open at 6.30am to accommodate early starts, and operate five days a week, 52 weeks a year.
