We'd love to talk to you about your child joining the BAC Early Learning community. Book a free Open Day Tour, send an enrolment enquiry form to find out more, or apply to enrol!

We provide the highest quality day care and kindy education for your child in a loving, caring Christian environment where the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of each child is allowed to progress at its own rate and be supported by all educators.

Our Early Learning and Kindergarten services provide long day care for children aged six weeks to five years (including kindergarten), and is located within the grounds of Brisbane Adventist College.

In order to cater for age-appropriate development, our service is organised into three groups, each with maximum adult/child ratios. This ensures that there is an adequate number of staff represented for the number of children in each room.
