Thank you for your interest in Woodlea.
We are delighted to announce that Woodlea have entered into an agreement with Eclipse Early Education Group to deliver a childcare facility, located opposite the Active Open Space Precinct in Stage 16, which will accomodate approximately 100 places. The planning permit has been approved and the facility is due to open to the public in the 2nd quarter of 2018.
We will ensure all purchasers and residents of Woodlea are kept up to date with current information about this exciting facility including further details on how to secure your childs' future with Eclipse Early Education Group at Woodlea.
With state of the art purpose built child care centres, Eclipse Early Learning Centre’s have created an environment to stimulate and challenge children. The National Early Years Learning Framework is a curriculum designed to stimulate brain development through play based learning. Eclipse offer a controlled curriculum to compliment the success of your child’s abilities now and in later years.
The Early Years Learning Framework plays a critical role in developing a love of learning. During the early years, children develop a sense of self; the framework’s fundamental view draws on children’s lives as being characterised by belonging, being and becoming and ensures our centres are linked to family, home culture and home language to ensure each child is uniquely cared for.
Our Activities, curriculum and facilities are designed to make children feel comfortable in their learning environment. Our centres aim to create a home-like feel with natural furnishings, colours and resources. Photos of children with their loved ones are also prominent in each room; the aim is to create an extension of each child’s home life.
Eclipse early education group offers a dedicated program to meet your childs needs to help them learn and grow in a safe environment.

Bernadette loves taking her four kids to the wonderful Woodlea parks and therefore it is appropriate that we spoke to her in the Stage 1 park. Hers is a mixed-nationality household and their favourite family culinary experience reflects her husband’s Filipino culture. Banana leafs for plates and fingers, not forks has their kids in messy food heaven! Link to full bio here: http://bit.ly/facesofwoodlea #facesofwoodlea #knowyourcommunity
Petr is from Vladivostok Russia and is married to Laetitia, who was born in Belgium. They live in Woodlea with their two young daughters, who by their parents definition reflect both Eastern and Western culture. Petr tells us of a Russian tradition that is handed down from generation to generation when moving into a new house. With so many doing just that at Woodlea, we recommend new residents watching Petr tell us about the Russian symbolic cat “house keeper”, that watches over the new residence and helps to maintain household happiness.

Raj and Melody went all out to wear clothing that denotes their cultural heritage, from Mumbai India. Their Indian experience is of a glorious and multi-tiered society, where food culture is king. Raj and Melody have helped build our understanding of traditional festivals and celebrations that are important to their original community, that now cut across religious and cultural divisions.

Emmanuel “Manny” was born in Malta and came to Australia as a child in the post-war migrant intake of 1954. He tells of an era of simplicity and joy amongst the challenges of life in a new land. Woodlea recognizes that a balanced community has representation across the ages and Manny shows us that living in a new community with many young families helps to keep a spring in one’s step.

Introducing Gustavo: Gustavao (“Gus”) and his young family are a mix of Latin European and Latin American blood, and from his account of their lives at home they have found a wonderful blend. Gus is from El Salvador and his wife is from Italy. A Latin home would not be complete without a love of joyous, uplifting music and wonderful food, designed to share with neighbours, friends and family.

Introducing Chris - one of the very first Woodlea residents, with a passion for engagement with those around him and the Woodlea community in general. Chris was selected as being representative of “traditional” Australian caucasian background, but learning of his Maltese descent reminded us that it is only the indigenous Australians who aren’t derived from somewhere else!
