MARAGON EARLY LEARNING CENTRE
I’m Nicole Wortley, I have been in the child care industry for 23 years and the Centre Director at Baldivis since its opening in June 2018. I’m passionate about providing exceeding quality care and programmes to ensure every child is a competent, capable learner with opportunities to explore discover and be nurtured by dedicated educators. Our early learning centre has several pets as we truly believe in the benefits of teaching children to care for animals. Caring for an animal teaches empathy, confidence and responsibility, helps with socialization and increases verbal skills. Caring for children from 8 weeks – 5 years, our Reggio Emilia and Montessori blended approach has strong roots within nature and focuses on a learning environment enriched with creative and sensory experiences as avenues for growth allowing every child to reach their true potential.
As early childhood educators, we understand the pivotal role that a family plays in creating positive, nurturing relationship between the child and school. Families are viewed as our ‘partners’ and we believe we have a shared goal in educating and inspiring the children. I firmly believe we create our community around our service and work in partnership to create a love of learning and ensure enriched learning outcomes for all involved.

What People Say
My 2 year old son has been at Maragon Baldivis since mid-2018 and he is absolutely thriving! The staff are absolutely amazing in every aspect of his learning. We can’t believe how much he has learned and remembered since he started. He’s an incredible little boy and we are so very lucky to have such an outstanding daycare whose staff go above and beyond each and every day!! 10000000% would recommend!! X thank you Maragon Baldivis.
The environment and staff at Baldivis Maragon is amazing! It has been quite an emotional transition to day care for my little girl, as she has never left me, but the staff have always been so positive, caring and nurturing, which is exactly the kind of place I was searching for! The orientations and support we have received so far has been brilliant and I know I am leaving her in the best possible care. I also love how the environment is calming, open and warm which makes it feel inviting. We are so happy we found such a special place for our little girl.
I cannot recommend Maragon Baldivis highly enough! The staff are amazing, from front desk to the rooms, they are all such beautiful, caring ladies! The facilities are second to none- in the last decade of utilising child care, I have never seen a centre like this. They encompass everything you could wish for in choosing care for your babe- Love, Cleanliness, Adventure, & Encouragement. My little one cries when it’s *not* his “school day”! Thank you so much our beautiful Maragon village!!
We love our move to Maragon Baldivis, the girls there are fantastic with my little ones and my son has gone from saying 4-5 words to over 40 words in just one week! We get photos and videos throughout the day and all the kids are laughing and smiling. We couldn’t be happier! Thanks Maragon Family.
