Welcome to Tadpoles Early Learning, your best choice in early education, childcare and Kindergarten in Cooroy.  We’re welcoming new families to join our baby nurserytoddler program and Kindergarten. You’re invited to visit for a free stay and play date or family tour today! 

Your child’s lifelong learning journey starts here! Our approach begins with a focus on baby sensory play and building secure attachments so our littlest learners develop the confidence they need to explore.

This is followed by exciting play-based toddler programs featuring opportunities to develop literacy, numeracy, and early socialisation skills. Children aged from 3-years old can join our Kindergarten programs, developing the school readiness skills they need to thrive in Primary School.

“Research shows the first five years of your child’s life are the most important. Our lifelong learning approach will support your child to develop emotionally, socially, physically and academically, no matter what age they begin with us, to ensure they develop a lifelong love of learning. Together, we can help your child reach their full potential.” Dr Lesley Jones

What our families say about us ...
  • "We have an autistic son who needed extra assistance at times. In the Senior Kindy room, he had a support inclusion worker assigned to him every day he attended. The staff there have been nothing but helpful and supportive and my son is more than ready to start school next year."
    - Amanda Thomson, December 2019 (Google Review)
  • "My daughter's first experience of daycare was at Tadpoles Cooroy. It was a relief to know that she was in the capable hands of all the amazing ladies. She was always excited to go, and I saw major developmental leaps in the time she was at Tadpoles Cooroy. The staff were incredibly lovely and kind, and adored by the whole family. Would highly recommend Tadpoles Cooroy."

  • "My kids love going to Tapoles to the point it takes me ages to get them to leave to come home. Everyone is so lovely and caring and the facilities are awesome. I wouldn’t send my kids anywhere else."
    - Amy-Louise Strahl, January 2018 (Facebook Review)
  • "We LOVE Tadpoles Cooroy the staff are very welcoming and friendly. I'm always informed about my child's day. The educator's lessons are very interesting and educational. Love how they bring alot of nature into their lessons. All the staff stand out which is amazing. Even though we don't live in Cooroy we travel from Tewantin just for Tadpoles. Thanks Tadpoles!!"
