Welcome to Rise Early Learning Charmhaven

Our Centre

Rise Early Learning Charmhaven is conveniently located on the Central Coast of NSW. We cater for children ages six weeks to school age.

  • Meals including snacks prepared by our own Chef
  • Nappies, wipes & sunscreen
  • Incursion and excursion program
  • Kinderloop – Parent communication tool for daily journals and learning stories

Our Families

We practice a holistic teaching and learning approach that has been developed with a core focus on relationship-based pedagogy. Our pedagogical practices are informed by current research and evidence on young children’s learning.  Families are welcome to visit during the day to participate in our program, share their family activities with the team, or to breastfeed in our parent room. We keep our families up to date about their child’s development, daily activities, learning stories, photos and centre news via our Kinderloop app.


We regularly hold family fun days breakfast mornings and parent education forums, such as transition to school night and curriculum evening. 

Our Environments

Rise Early Learning Charmhaven has been carefully designed to support the learning & development journey of each child. The outdoor environment has beautiful natural spaces for children to explore and play. At Rise Early Learning Charmhaven children enjoy sandplay, mudplay, river beds, sensory gardens, gardening, and exploration around every corner.

Our indoor environments are beautifully curated with natural, age-appropriate resources, quiet spaces, books, and furnishings.

Our Programs

We take a holistic approach to learning encompassing age appropriate and tailored methodologies which cater for each child’s unique individuality and development. This approach is underpinned by a dedication to the creation of nurturing ‘home-away-from-home’ environments and the progressive introduction to learning beyond the classroom.

Our Educators are highly-qualified and passionate about nurturing and supporting each child to truly be themselves. Our programs are underpinned by the renowned RIE approach that ensures every child is respected and able to pursue their own interests.

Preschool and Transition to school program

We work in partnership with families and local schools because we believe it takes a village to raise a child and support them through life’s transitions. Our approach to preparing children for their transition to school is evidence-based. We value continuity of learning and transitions, strong partnerships, and working in collaboration with families, schools, and teachers, as well as establishing shared views between Early Childhood Education and Care and schools on transitioning.

The Rise Charmhaven Difference

Nature Play

Our Nature Play Programs provide opportunities where children are encouraged to think for themselves,

create, imagine, navigate challenges, problem solve, develop intrinsic motivation, communication skills and build resilience and independence. Direct exposure to nature is essential for healthy childhood development and for the physical and emotional health of children and adults.

Life Skills

A large part of our day-today learning in the classroom focuses on the practical life skills.

Practical life experiences is purposeful activity, develops motor control and coordination, and develops independence, concentration, and a sense of responsibility. 

Cultural Appreciation

We believe that learning about the differences that surround us by venturing out into our communities

or inviting them into our services is a pathway to strong communication skills based on understanding and respect of others which in turn is the foundation of identity, self-worth and respect.

Mind and Body

Our minds and bodies are in constant communication. The child’s mind-body connection is powerful and directly linked to their overall wellness.

As Early Childhood professionals we focus on educating and caring for the whole developing child.
