The Professor Lynn Corcoran Early Learning Centre: FROEBEL Parkville at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research (Institute) in Parkville is our newest Early Learning Centre in Melbourne. The service provides 100 places for children from approx. 6 months to 5 years of age, with an integrated Kindergarten Program. Embedded in the lively Parkville precinct, our Centre spans across four levels, each equipped with exciting and unique indoor and outdoor learning spaces. Our beautiful semi-open kitchen invites children to assist our chef in cooking and baking experiences, learning about healthy food and nutrition.  Our Centre has a strong focus on inquiry-based, early STEM learning. FROEBEL implements its Little Scientists program, which has been endorsed by the Australian Government under the National Innovation and Science Agenda. FROEBEL holistically and continuously trains its early childhood educators and teachers at the service on all Little Scientists modules, with the shared vision of making early STEM education the trademark of the service.  German is introduced as a second community language at the service. Whilst English is the main language of the service, a number of German-speaking educators work with the children in German, all day, every day.  FROEBEL and the Institute are committed to reconciliation and creating meaningful integration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture into all aspects of the organisation. At our service, Indigenous culture and history are integrated into the curriculum.
