About Us


We have four rooms, caring for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years. The rooms are:

JOEYS - For babies and toddlers up to 2 years old
BILBYS - For  2 & 3 year olds
KOOKABURRAS - For 3 & 4 year olds
DOLPHINS - For 4 & 5 year olds

With over 40 years experience serving our community in childcare excellence, we pride ourselves on providing the best level love and care for your little ones. We are delighted that we have an excellent reputation, and the proof of this is the large number of families who have chosen us to care for all of their children across the years. Even more fantastic, is that children we cared for many years ago are now bringing their children for us to care for too!

We are deeply passionate about meeting the needs of modern families, and we recognise that many families now have both parents working. Accordingly, we are open from 7am to 6pm, 52 weeks per year (excluding public holidays). This makes our loving, family-oriented centre the logical choice for the large number of commuting families in our community, as well as for those who work locally. 

Our centre is purpose-built, with an emphasis on child development, safety and hygiene. It has a generous outdoor verandah for meals and shaded activities, and a huge playground, with a rural outlook and variety of exciting activities. It has a large sandpit, climbing equipment, slides, and a range of fun equipment to release energy and promote interest and adventure. We also love gardening, and have our own veggie patch and worm farm. 

Footprints Early Learning Centre Erina is run by Erina Baptist Community Care Ltd and its Board of Directors. We are a not-for-profit community service established by Erina Baptist Church in 1977 as a service to the wider community.
