About Us

We foster respect for the natural environment and appreciation of flora and fauna with our outdoor education programming. Our nursery room enjoys a dedicated outdoor space, while the main yard includes a hen house and vegie patch for toddlers and preschoolers to experience.

AECC is independent, not-for-profit, and is supported by a committee of family volunteers who oversee the affairs of the Centre.

We are open Monday to Friday 7:45am-6:00pm and our fees are currently range from $120 - $125 per day.
