Aurora Early Learning Centre

Aurora Early Learning Centre was founded by Dalal Lim (B. App. Science – University of Sydney), a qualified Speech Therapist with 22 years of professional experience in the Speech and Communications development of young children. As the leader and active director, her experience and love in early learning development and pedagogy sees herself leading a team of passionate and well qualified educators.

As a family oriented boutique centre, we are embarking on a journey to redefine the future of child care and early learning through the emphasis on speech and communications, healthy food, caring and active lifestyle. We offer a safe and nurturing environment with the support of dedicated and passionate early learning professionals.

Aurora Early Learning Centre in Frenchs Forest was opened on 28th May 2019. Located in the heart of Frenchs Forest’s business park precinct, it is conveniently surrounded by amenities such as the new North Beaches Hospital, Warringah Aquatic Centre, adjacent Virgin Active Gym and nearby cafes. With early opening hours, ample undercover parking, and a new modern internal fit-out with generous external play area, we are equipped to provide high quality service to the vibrant families and community of the Northern Beaches.

With 5 vibrant rooms, we are a 90 place Centre that pride on our detail attention to the children’s needs and development. We offer healthy and balanced meals that focuses on freshness and nutritional value. In addition to our large sunny outdoor play area, with the help of our children, we built our own organic vegetable & fruit and herb garden. This forms part of the children’s understanding on food and its origin.
