Supportive Partnerships for Parents

Welcome to Narnia Young Parents. We are delighted that you are interested in learning more about our centre.

Narnia Young Parents exists to provide a supportive partnership for our parents who are studying at the Young Parents College. This site has been designed to introduce you to our program and the unique environment it provides for nurturing the development of your child.

We understand that as many of our young parents are determined to improve their own circumstances, their motivation is also to provide a loving environment for their little ones and to improve the future prospects for their babies.

Our fully qualified Christian Educators understand that the first few years of a child’s life are a time of extraordinary development. Whilst their parents are studying in the classroom, the children are engaged in a stimulating, early learning program.

The student classroom is adjacent to Narnia Early Learning, enabling the parents to participate in the daily nurturing of their children. The curriculum for some of the courses studied by the parents also incorporates activities planned for the babies.

Each baby and toddler we care for is a special gift and uniquely created. We are eager to get to know each child and watch their journey of discovering all that God has created them to be.

Meet the Director

Michelle Payne

I love to work in partnership with families to provide quality early childhood education. I place immense value in learning through play and ensuring that children have every opportunity to reach their upmost potential. I have been extremely blessed to work within the St Philip's community as a Director for both early childhood and OOSH services since completing my Associate Diploma in Social Science. I am currently completing my Degree in Early Childhood Education. My husband and I have three beautiful children and attend the Rock Church in Port Stephens.

Dual Generational Approach

We offer a dual generational approach to supporting our young parents and their children. As the young parents study in their classroom, the children are also learning and developing skills in a stimulating and nurturing environment in our Narnia Early Learning Centre.
