Welcome to the Pelican family

Thank you for visiting our website.

At Pelican, we have a firm belief that education is a dynamic experience. Learning can be an occasion for empowering and enriching your child's life experience. We hope the holistic learning experience at Pelican will be exciting and challenging and provide good transitional support for the little ones before they move onto their Big Schools.

Pelican has been in operation for more than 20 years. With a group of qualified, experienced and friendly educators, we create an inviting, friendly and nurturing environment for children up to 6 years old.

In line with Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), families can expect interest-based, child-focused and interactive learning and play experiences for their children. In addition, to facilitate the transition to the School system by the age of 5 or 6, we have built-in an extensive School Readiness Program in the curriculum, encouraging numeracy, literacy, writing, recognition and pre-reading skills.

We have an Open-Door Policy, and we warmly welcome you to visit our Centre, speak with our educators and see first-hand for yourself, our commitment to quality, professionalism, respect for diversity and support for inclusion in all we do.

You can be assured that your choice of Pelican Pre-School & Long Day Care will be the first step towards success in your child's learning and development.

Our whole-center water filtration system utilizes a 3-stage filtration technique to soften and remove even the finest dirt, sediments, and chemicals from the tap water.

We are confident that having access to softened, contaminant-free water will provide great health benefits for our children and staff. For example:
