Kalgoorlie Early Learning Centre
Free Family Fun Day 12 November, 10:30am to 2:00pm. Come and meet our passionate new team and let your little ones experience our beautiful, state of the art centre.
Opening 6 December - This is the Y's newest architecturally designed, learning environment developed with sensory and creative experiences to encourage every child to reach their full potential.
Our programs are designed to meet the individual interests and needs of all children and support their learning journey. Our award winning nature escape outdoor environment plays a large role in shaping centre programs around nature play.
Our staff are passionate, dedicated and qualified early childhood educators, and we pride ourselves on offering extremely affordable fees. We offer places for children from birth to 5 years and we only serve nutritious home-style food. We offer flexible hours to accommodate to all rosters, while providing access to a child health nurse. The centre is a member of Remida - a creative reuse centre that supplies recyclable materials to services for children to be creative with and learn about sustainability.

Centre Director: Beth
Hi there! My name is Beth Hodes and I am the Centre Director at YMCA Kalgoorlie Early Learning Centre.
Originally from NSW, I started my career in early childhood education and care in 1976. During this time I have had the privilege of looking after many different children from many different backgrounds and contexts.
I am a Diploma Qualified Educator with 3 years experience as a Centre Director.
I have worked in both regional and metropolitan NSW, QLD, Victoria and Western Australia. I was also lucky enough to have 3-year secondment overseas.
I am passionate about delivering high-quality education and care service to children and families.
I am delighted to be in the Pilbara, having lived in the Pilbara and Kimberley, I know how important child care is for families in regional centres.
I believe the most important aspect of care for all children is to be able to contribute to their own environment and learn the skills of lifelong learning.
