The Brook Early Education and Care - Male and Female Preschoolers Building Blocks


Inspired by our inner western location in the pocket of St Lucia, we treat our newest centre as a place of calmness and peace, where nature is at the centre of learning. Our children, their families, and our educators have a strong sense of belonging and enjoyment as part of The Pocket community.

Our philosophy at The Pocket is that the early years in a child’s life is are crucial in shaping their future. Our team at The Pocket Early Education and Care are your parenting partners, and we’ll be here to help your children grow and develop into bright individuals. See The Pocket’s philosophy here.


Montessori Education

The Pocket Early Education & Care offers children aged 3 or more with an option to attend the child-centred Montessori method of education to help children develop through child-led activities based on their individual interests.

The Montessori approach offers 5 areas of study that inspire children to become confident, responsible, independent learners: Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, and Cultural Studies. Our experienced and caring educators are here to support your child in this individualistic learning process, and ensure that they get the most out of every day at The Pocket.
