About Shine Early Learning Centres

At Shine, we are a family-owned and operated business with a deep-rooted passion for early childhood education. Co-owner Lawrence grew up in the industry when his mother and sister operated a small boutique centre for 20 years.

Our genuine dedication to forming meaningful connections with children and families sets us apart in this corporate-dominated industry. We find immense joy in witnessing children’s growth and development, from their early toddler years through to school age.

With three centres across New South Wales and Victoria, we provide a nurturing environment where children can flourish.

Why Choose Shine Early Learning Centres?

Holistic Approach

We endeavour to provide your child with a journey to nurture and facilitate growth and development. We strive to provide supportive, safe, and stimulating learning experiences that foster lifelong, solid foundations for every child.

Seamless Communication

Our educators establish and maintain effective communication with families so that together, we can best support children’s well-being and development.

Holistic Programs

Every moment of a child’s early years is an opportunity for learning and development. We balance varied, fulfilling ways to engage your child in capturing a holistic approach to development including creativity, exercise, science, movement, language, literacy, numeracy and socialisation.

Positive Atmosphere

Positive early learning environments start with a positive social and emotional environment that is built on caring and responsive relationships. When children feel secure, they can explore and learn, experience joy and wonder.

Health & Early Intervention

Health and Early intervention support provide parents with resources and information to enhance their child’s wellbeing and development. Working with the centre makes parents feel confident that they are facilitating their child’s needs.


We believe helping children eat healthy meals will develop long-term positive eating habits. At Shine, our centre cooks provide delicious and nutritious home-style meals that are shared in a communal dining environment.

Emotional & Social Development

Social and emotional development encompasses the child’s experience, expression, and management of emotions and the ability to establish rewarding and positive relationships with others around them.

Wonderful day care. Caring and empathetic. Any concerns that were raised were dealt with swiftly. Excellent communication so I know what my child is up to throughout the day.

We are new to the area and saw lots of centres but chose Shine because of the space of the babies room. All the staff are kind, approachable and friendly.
