Port Hedland Early Learning Centre
YMCA Port Hedland Early Learning Centre was purpose built by the YMCA in partnership with BHP, creating spacious and vibrant environments that encourage play and learning. Programs are designed to meet the individual interests and needs of the children and support their learning journey. Our staff are passionate, dedicated and qualified Early Childhood Educators.
An award winning naturescape outdoor environment plays a large role in shaping centre programs around nature-play.
We offer places for children from birth to 5 years, we only serve nutritious home-style food and fees are affordable. Plus flexible hours to accommodate rosters, 5 days a week, and access to a Child Health Nurse. The centre is a member of Remida - a creative reuse centre that supplies recyclable materials to services for children to be creative with and learn about sustainability.

Sarah Webster - Director
“I have enjoyed working in education, disability, play and care settings in Australia & the UK for over twelve years. I gained my Diploma in Children’s Services in 2002 and feel privileged to have supported a diverse range of children, young people and families throughout my career. My experience is in managing centres and promoting safe, fully inclusive environments and I am a true believer that children learn through play. I am really happy to be working for the Y as that philosophy underpins the YMCA’s very own approach to learning. I am delighted to be here in the Pilbara with my husband Ben and son Alex and I look forward to getting to know each of you during my time as Port Hedland Early Learning Centre Director.”
I am extremely proud and happy with my daughters educators in the 0-15month room at Port Hedland ELC. The experiences and general care is outstanding!

I just wanted to give that extra praise and credit to the centre because they are absolute angels. I am so happy that my child had the opportunity to be part of the ELC family in Hedland and it will be a time that we will treasure forever and wanted to let you know that they have truly exceeded all my expectations and more.
