Fittingly, Habitat Early Learning grew from one family’s dream.
In 2006, with the care and education of their own young children in mind, the Thornton family had the idea of developing an early childhood education centre that offered an unparalleled experience.
Their vision was realised in 2009 when Habitat Early Learning Ferny Grove, nestled against the tranquil backdrop of Cedar Creek, opened its doors.
A decade later, the search for a second location — possessing the beauty of the Ferny Grove setting — began. A stunning Nundah homestead with a heart-warming history soon caught their attention. Habitat Early Learning Nundah opened in 2020.
In 2023, the stunning coastal backdrop of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast became home to the Thornton’s third service: Habitat Early Learning Peregian Springs. Taking cues from the contemporary landscape, the multi-storey, architecturally designed service is Habitat’s first Montessori-exclusive learning centre.
