Hawthorn Early Learning and Kindergarten

The Hawthorn early learning and kindergarten centre is one of the newest additions to the Oac community. We’re excited to be able to provide families in the area with comprehensive and tailored curriculums, a design thoughtfully created by Law Architects, and a team of qualified educators passionate about giving your child an inspiring start to life. Within our Hawthorn childcare centre, 0-6 year olds can benefit from being amongst nature in our exciting outdoor play area, featuring a bike track, sustainable vegetable garden, ergonomic play hills, and much more. Children will also enjoy our brightly lit, spacious interiors, the final touch in a campus that quickly feels like a home away from home. With a deep understanding of the impact that the initial 6 years of a child’s life has on their development, we know that the decisions surrounding finding a day care are incredibly important. That’s why we’d love for you to book a tour and visit our Hawthorn campus, where we can introduce you to our team and unique perspective on early learning.


Meet our Hawthorn Campus Director, Laura

“I value the importance of early education for children. The team at Hawthorn strive towards achieving best practices each day, creating a sense of belonging for children, families and the wider community. We draw from a range of perspectives and contemporary theories that influence an individualised curriculum and enhanced learning experiences. At Oac Hawthorn, we aim to build a learning community for everyone, today and every day. We want to empower children, promote individuality and form respectful partnerships with families, while delivering quality early learning programs for children to form a foundation for their next step in life.”
