Why Choose Niño ELA

Niño ELA’s mindful curriculum is built around flexible indoor and outdoor learning environments. Working together with families, we create individual learning programs that consider interests, physical, personal, social and emotional wellbeing as well as cognitive aspects of learning.

Guided by the Early Years Learning Framework of Australia, our unique education curriculum harnesses the theory of emergent learning and the science of positive psychology.

Priya, Niño ELA Malvern East Parent
“I could not be happier with the care my son receives at Niño Point Cook. His educators really care about him and it shows in all the interactions I’ve witnessed and in how comfortable he is around them. He is learning and developing at a pace that suits him and having lots of fun along the way! We love the warm welcome we receive every time we walk into the centre and the friendliness displayed by every single staff member we pass in the hallways.

Highly recommended!”
