About Us

Introducing Christian Early Learning (CEL), a non-denominational Christian organisation established in 2022. CEL was founded by leaders in the Early Learning sector with a steadfast mission: to serve as a peak body that connects, supports, and guides church boards, leaders, teachers, and educators within the expansive network of 450+ Christian Early Learning centres across Australia. Our mission extends beyond mere support; we are also fervent advocates committed to ensuring the enduring vitality of the critical ministry of Christian Early Learning.


We see a future where every Christian Early Learning organisation is governed with excellence and delivered by passionate educators whose “mission first” perspective results in early education and care environments that nurture hearts, minds and souls.


The mission of Christian Early Learning is to empower and mobilise Christian organisations to operate with excellence and purpose.

At Christian Early Learning, we believe that every child deserves the best possible start in life. Our mission is to empower and mobilise Christian organisations to provide high-quality early learning experiences that nurture the whole child. We are committed to helping Christian organisations operate with excellence and purpose by providing resources, training, and support to help them deliver the best possible early learning programs. Working together can create a brighter future for all children and help them reach their full potential.

CEL provides invaluable support and resources to Christian educators in their mission to educate and impact children. Research shows that early childhood education is critical to a child's development and can have a lasting impact on their future learning and success. By focusing on developing a strong sector in Christian Early Education, CEL and its member organisations are establishing the groundwork for a lifetime of learning and growth for the children currently in their care.


CEL is both a hub for learning and place of inspiration, a sector specific support for both leaders and educators.

With specialised membership programs, events and retreats we are here to support YOU as you support, educate and nurture the children and families in your care.
