Wendy and Jason Croker are the Owners and Approved Providers of Waves Early Learning Service which has been open and serving the community of Cronulla and surrounding areas since 2004. We are very excited about what we offer to your children with all the latest in play and educational equipment in a warm, clean, loving and safe environment. We see the link between home and the child care service as a very important one and therefore value your involvement.

All our experiences at Waves Early Learning Service are designed to increase your child’s social, intellectual, emotional and physical development, whilst at the same time giving satisfaction and bringing happiness to each child.


We believe in acknowledging the original custodians of this land, the Dharawal people and their language and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the community. At Waves Early Learning we believe that every educator, family, and child is a special and valued individual. We respect and embrace diversity, as well as other people's differences, which we welcome and celebrate. Every person's values, culture, beliefs, capabilities, and language should be acknowledged, embraced, and reflected in our learning environment. 

We believe in the children's path of self-discovery and growth and believe education is one of the greatest powers a child could obtain. We educate and enable children to communicate peacefully and constructively, demonstrate empathy for others, actively challenge bias and promote social justice. According to our views, learning is increased when the child has a strong sense of belonging.

We consider it crucial to nurture children's and educators' imaginations, creativity, and personalities. Play, in our opinion, is essential for young children's development. Play, emphasises the notion of letting children "simply be" and appreciates the significance of early childhood education. With the help of other children and educators, we believe it is essential to provide children with the opportunities to experiment, discover, explore, create, practise theories, solve issues, and communicate ideas. 

We are committed to creating a community that appreciates children, respects their rights, and embraces them. We believe in creating a community in which children may develop the skills required for the transition to school and, more importantly, readiness for life. We see our families as partners in ensuring the greatest outcomes for young children. We are equally devoted to being engaged in our community through supporting local companies, utilising community resources, and strengthening links to the community and many cultures past and present.
