Ngala Early Learning Kensington


Ngala Early Learning Kensington is one of Perth’s most trusted early learning centres, pioneering the not-for-profit service model since inception in 1971.

Our spacious classrooms are flooded with natural light, creating warm and inviting learning environments. Each classroom is complemented by its own outdoor yard, providing children with ample opportunities to engage in outdoor play and learning activities.

We prioritise child agency through our indoor-outdoor program, which seamlessly integrates both environments throughout the day. This empowers children to choose and explore spaces that spark their interest, fostering a sense of autonomy and ownership over their learning experiences.

Central to our philosophy is the creation of a nurturing “home away from home” environment. We achieve this by furnishing our spaces with familiar furniture and resources commonly found in households, fostering a sense of comfort, and belonging.

We utilise natural materials and loose parts to encourage children’s exploration and investigation, promoting creativity and critical thinking skills.

Building strong relationships is paramount to us, and we are fortunate to have a dedicated team of qualified and passionate educators, many of whom have been with our service for over a decade. This longevity ensures consistency for both children and families, fostering a sense of trust and continuity in their early learning journey.

At Ngala Early Learning Kensington, we are committed to providing a nurturing and enriching environment where children can thrive and flourish.

We invite you to join our community and experience the warmth and dedication that sets us apart.

Leeanne Rough
Centre Coordinator

Hello, my name is Leeanne, and I am so happy to be leading Ngala’s Kensington team. I hold an Advanced Diploma in Children’s Services and have worked in the Early Childhood sector for 24 years, with 14 of those years working in service leadership.

I am incredibly passionate about early childhood education and am a strong advocate for providing high quality and responsive learning for all children. I love focusing on the “hidden curriculum” that a child brings to their day, as well as providing opportunities beyond the traditional classroom learning.

I strive to provide children a curriculum that provides the opportunities to learn from their environment, educators, families, and community. I also love getting families involved in the service through family and networking events.

I look forward to meeting you and your family.
