Study Early Childhood Education in Melbourne
Dragonfly Toys is part of a group of companies that supports, nurtures and develops Early Childhood Educators. Dragonfly Toys has grown from our brainchild company Organisational Learning Australia (OLA) which provides nationally accredited training to Early Childhood educators in Victoria.
We are approximately 4 km from Melbourne CBD. Situated in the Abbotsford Convent precinct, and nestled in a bend of the Yarra River adjacent to Sophia Mundi Steiner School and Collingwood Children's Farm, OLA provides a unique early childhood experience.
With influences from thinkers such as Rudolph Steiner and drawing on the traditions of Waldorf schools in Australia and the Early Years Learning Framework, we promote a play-based curriculum. Experts agree that play is the best vehicle for young children’s learning, providing the most appropriate stimulus for brain development.
OLA offers CHC30113 Certificate III Early Childhood Education and Care over 6 months and CHC50113 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care over 12 months. Students attend classes 2 days per month and participate in voluntary or paid work experience placement 1 day per week for the duration of the course. There is a rolling enrolment so now is a perfect time to enrol.
We also offer a number of learning opportunities that are designed to connect parents and children in meaningful and imaginatively rich play. See below.
