The Early Learning and Nurture Centre is a community-based centre located on Charles Sturt's Wagga Wagga Campus. The centre is licensed to care for 58 children. We welcome children of Charles Sturt University staff and students, children of distance education students who attend Charles Sturt University intensive (residential) schools, and the wider community.

We cater for 16 children per day in the 0-2 age group, 20 children in the 2-3 age group and 22 children in the 3-5 age group.

Our centre is staffed by a dedicated team of early childhood educators and we always operate above staff to child ratios.
