Early Learning at Gold Coast Christian College

Welcome to Gold Coast Christian College – Where we guide little hands and hearts in God's love.

Our Gold Coast Early Learning program is designed to nurture your child's holistic development. Guided by the Early Years Learning Framework and Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines. Within our safe, loving environment enriched by Christian principles, your little ones thrive, grow, and develop a strong sense of self.

Our Philosophy

We hold the firm belief that children thrive best when they feel cherished, supported, and secure, much like they do within the comfort of their homes. Central to our mission is ensuring that our Gold Coast early learning program is staffed by dedicated educators who are genuinely passionate about their roles and who forge nurturing connections with each child.

Our overarching goal is to provide every child with the affection, care, joy, and laughter they rightfully deserve, enabling them to flourish and develop into well-rounded individuals both socially, emotionally, and physically.

It is our sincerest desire to offer an environment where every child experiences love, embraces learning, and grows into confident, fulfilled adults.

Our Early Learning



Join us at our Bright Eyes Playgroup, where dedicated moms lead the fun every Tuesday morning from 9 am to 11 am during term time. Each session costs just a gold coin donation per family, and we kindly ask that you bring some cut-up fruit to share.

Our playgroup is designed to encouraging caregivers to actively engage with their little ones in a stimulating and well-equipped space. Our venue boasts a fully fenced, undercover courtyard for outdoor play, as well as an air-conditioned hall filled with an array of toys and crafts.

We prioritise diversity, safety, and a warm, welcoming atmosphere where everyone feels at home. Come join the fun and make memories with us!

What sets us apart in early childhood education

At Gold Coast Christian College we understand that choosing the right kindergarten for your child is a significant decision for parents.

Be assured that our College believes in providing a loving, caring Christian environment where the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of each child is a priority. We aim to provide the highest quality care, and education and endeavour to partner closely with parents in the learning journey.

Our Early Learning Program

All educators are trained and experienced in areas of early education and care. Educators recognise the individuality of each child and develop an educational program to challenge each child to expand their knowledge, develop their skills and expand their interests.

Our Kindergarten Approved Program not only demonstrates our qualifications but also signifies our ability to cultivate learning in children aged 5 to 6.

Designed specifically for the preschool years, our childcare program prioritises the development of strong bonds between children and educators. We achieve this by embracing and celebrating each child's cultural identity and heritage. Through this approach, children gain a deeper understanding of themselves and create meaningful connections within their community.

Where the magic of childhood meets the wonders of learning

It takes a village to raise a child, and the Gold Coast Christian College Early Learning program embodies this philosophy.

Here, young minds flourish in a nurturing environment designed for exploration, learning, and growth. Our facilities offer more than just classrooms; they provide a second home filled with opportunities for development and happiness. Step into a world where education is an exciting journey of discovery and progress.

Come see the world through Bright Eyes!
