ELC Parent Information

The HCCS Early Learning Centre (ELC) offers high quality preschool education, within a Long Day Care setting, located in the grounds of The Hills Christian Community School. This unique combination provides a smooth and secure transition from home to school. Your child’s enrolment into the ELC can be the first step towards school life at HCCS.

Please contact our Enrolments Officer, Anita McDonald in the first instance: amcdonald@hccs.sa.edu.au

Enrolment into the ELC will be accepted for children from 3½ years of age. Parents will be able to discuss their child/children’s individual needs with the Director prior to commencement, if necessary. Limited places may be available for children already enrolled in other schools.

Participation in the ELC includes moving into Reception around 5 years of age. HCCS Reception intakes are at the beginning of Term 1 and Term 3.

ELC Sessions are offered Monday to Friday during school terms as follows:

  • The Orientation Phase is available for children from 3½ years of age, as an opportunity to settle your child into the ELC.
  • The Kindergarten Phase commences in the term after your child is 4 years of age and continues until they move into Reception.
