My name is Maddie Rizzo, and I have been a committed Early Childhood Educator for seven years. I have worked in a variety of long day care settings both in metropolitan Sydney and here in the South Western suburbs, and am thrilled to be a part of the team at Narellan World of Learning as Centre Manager.
The early years are a very special time in a person’s life, and Early Childhood Education services are pivotal in laying the foundations for lifelong learning. It is a privilege to be part of each child’s early learning narrative, not just to help them reach their academic potential, but to nurture them to become aware and kind people, who are empowered to contribute and take their place in our community.
This sector is exciting and ever evolving, and I choose to embrace modern pedagogy with open eyes, ears and an open mind. I aim to unite our community and drive our service towards excellence, creating a special place where all children feel celebrated for their competencies and knowledge, and educators and families can work together to create happy, meaningful, and lasting memories for our children.

Reviews and Testimonials
See what some of our parents say about our centres:
“I would like to offer all of you in the Pearls room a big thank you from Brenden & Laura. Our son, Hayden has grown so much this year in his education and to come home and tell me all about intestines, kidneys, liver and today the bladder we are absolutely blown away. We feel that the education that you are providing all of the children in this room is of such a high standard that we are so glad we moved to World of Learning at the start of last year.
We also love getting the Daily Reflection each day, this helps us to work with Hayden on revision of his day, and hopefully re-enforcing his learning, without this tool, we wouldn’t know what he is up to. Laura and I are both looking forward to the rest of the year with Hayden under your care and can’t imagine what he is going to come home with next.”

“We moved our two children to this center at the start of 2013 and have been extremely impressed. The staff are all caring and kind. Our children are treated as though they are valued and are encouraged to develop and learn. The teachers are very innovative in their creation of activities and learning materials. They are taught about nutrition and healthy habits, my son told me that broccoli is in the good food section so we can eat lots of it, this is great. The food they get served is fantastic, there is great thought that goes into their menus and its all fresh, plenty of fruit, vegetables, cereals and very minimal processed foods. We are also very impressed with the management of the center, we have provided feedback to the center on a small problem and we are treated with respect and genuine care, so you feel free to talk with management. I would have no hesitation in recommending this center as a place where you can feel confident in leaving your children”
“My son Daniel has been attending World of Learning for the past 18 months . I appreciate the time and effort the educators have put into creating a nurturing environment for him that enhances his learning and caters to his interests. The centre has provided many community links that provides opportunities for the children to grow within the community by having incursions where the SES and Fire brigade have visited. The educators at World of Learning show true dedication to all children and take the time to interact with my son and show the care, attention and reassurance that he requires throughout the day. Daniel has not found it easy to say goodbye each morning and being greeted with a friendly face and welcoming arms has made it easier for him and me to return to work. My daughter will start in the babies room in January. I am very confident that she will receive the love and care that she deserves as I return to work.. Thank You World of Learning”
“My daughter has been going to Narellan World of Learning for two years now since the age of one. I could not be happier with the centre and especially the educators there. My daughter comes home every day with a smile on her face and it makes me happy knowing she enjoys her days when I can’t be with her. It is hard enough leaving them so you can go to work but this way makes it a little easier”
“Fantastic Centre that I have used for the past 3 years. They have a great preschool program which really helped my oldest daughter settle into school well. Fantastic staff that make your kids feel like they are part of one big family. Thank you for taking care of my children like they were your own, I am a very happy parent!”
