Welcome to Clontarf World of Learning!
We are a 52 place Early Education and Care Service located on the Redcliffe Peninsula. Our amazing premises has been a Children’s Services Centre for well over 20 years and its location away from the main roads is one of its many features.
With three large classrooms and two playgrounds there is ample indoor and outdoor space. In recent years the outdoor playgrounds were upgraded to include natural play spaces and open space where movable equipment can be placed giving unlimited opportunities for learning.
An experienced and qualified team of educators provide a balanced curriculum based on the children’s interests, parent input and community events this is guided by the Early Years Learning Framework.
In addition to the environments and Educators, the service offers all meals (Morning tea, Lunch, Afternoon tea) made by an in-house cook who has been part of the service for 10 years.
Our number one goal at Clontarf World of Learning is to be not only your child’s teachers but an extension of your family.
We welcome you to contact us or visit the centre to learn more.

Reviews and Testimonials
See what some of our parents say about our centres:
“Our experience of WOL has been nothing but excellent. We love that the centre is small and intimate with the same educators caring for our children. We are assured that there is consistency, stability and high level communication on what has happened during the day. We see the staff as a very important extension to our family. Can’t speak highly enough of our experience here.”
“We switched to this service when our daughter was 15months and couldn’t be happier. Staff are friendly and down to earth, happy for a chat and very welcoming when you stay and play with the children. Communication is always clear and Kate has a very open door policy. A great choice being a small and friendly service. I would recommend to others in the area”
“My two children have been enrolled at the service for 6 months and love the service. The food is amazing and the teachers are warm and friendly. Many have lots of experience at the service which means they love their job. Consistency means a lot for young children’s development.”
“Clontarf World of Learning is a fantastic daycare. I knew it was the right daycare for my son as soon as I looked around & met the staff. It has a very friendly feel and the staff are great. My son enjoys being there & I feel confident he is learning and being cared for in a fun safe environment.”
“Clontarf World of Learning have to be by far the best daycare’s around. I have had all my 5 children attend there including my high functioning autistic child. They were amazing while dealing with him as well as the rest of my children. Since starting my children their many years ago I have moved from the local area and travel 30 min 3 days a week just to ensure they stay at this amazing place. The staff members are fantastic and the food is top quality. I recommend them to anyone looking at putting there child into care”
“My 3 year old son started Clontarf World of Learning after we pulled him out of another nursery due to questionnable care arrangements. Since being at the nursery he has become settled and even asks to go at the weekend. The staff are fantastic and always take time out to greet you and tell you about your child’s day. The menu has a wide variety and is all home made food which Charlie really enjoys. I would fully recommend this nursery.”
“The staff at Clontarf World of Learning love and care for the kids as if they were their own. The facilities are always improving and the centre offers opportunities for the kids at many centres do not offer. My daughter has learnt the life cycle of a chicken right before her eyes from their live incubation display, to caring for the chickens on site and collecting their eggs. The communication with parents is very good and there is no shortage of photos and details kids activities come pick up time. I highly recommend Clontarf World of Learning.”
