Who we are

Mater Dei Early Childhood Education (MDECE) offers centre-based early childhood education programs for babies and toddlers with developmental delay and/or disability and all children from birth to their transition to School at 6 years of age including children who have been assessed with profound, severe, moderate or mild developmental delay and/or disability.

We provide a strong person-centred, family-focused approach in which educators work with parents, carers, guardians, advocates and professionals to collaboratively determine and implement each child’s realistic, achievable short-term outcomes and, in turn, the child’s medium-term and long-term outcomes.

Mater Dei Preschool has been rated as Exceeding National Quality Standard.
