If you’re investigating childcare and early education options for your little one (or your future little one!) and live in or around Melbourne’s south eastern suburbs, then Evoke Early Learning in Clayton should be on your radar.
As with all our Evoke Early Learning centres, our Clayton site is inspired by the Reggio Emilia educational philosophy which emphasises children's natural curiosity. This globally acclaimed and highly successful approach values each and every child as capable, confident and competent and able to self-direct their learning process according to what inspires and interests them.
This child-focused approach informs the entire way of life at our Evoke centres.
We’ll chat about why Evoke Early Learning is one of the best early schools in Clayton, but first let’s take a look at some of the core aspects of a great child care centre.
What makes a great child care centre?
There are plenty of different elements involved in quality early education including:
- a safe, secure and positive environment
- a happy space where children and their families feel welcome
- a passionate and dedicated team who are qualified, experienced, warm and caring
- a meaningful, play-based learning programme which supports, inspires and engages every single child
- high-quality resources and materials
- a genuine desire and commitment to support each child to develop to their full potential
We’re often asked how these elements are entrenched across the fairly extensive age range that we look after (we have 165 places for children aged from six months to five years at our Clayton site) and our answer is simple.
Relationships are at the heart of our centres and our values underpin all that we do at Evoke Early Learning in Clayton.
These values provide a framework for our attitudes and our actions and are the guiding compass for how the team goes about their work each and every day.

How our values guide and motivate daily life at Evoke Early Learning Clayton
First of all, we have total faith in Reggio Emilia as the very best way for little people to learn and grow. It’s an approach to early education as opposed to a model and schools that adopt this philosophy use it to inspire and inform daily life rather than to prescribe a rigid framework. And we know from experience just how successful this approach is in empowering young children, building their self-confidence, developing key skills and inspiring a lifelong love of learning.
Our Evoke Early Learning Clayton team has extensive experience working with young babies through to pre-school and kindergarten-aged children and with their total dedication to their craft, genuine care and concern for every individual child and a deep passion for inspiring their charges to be their best selves, they’ve created safe, happy, engaging and welcoming spaces where parents feel totally comfortable leaving their precious bundles and where the children love to be.
