From birth, children demonstrate an enthusiasm to learn, be creative, and possess an extreme curiosity about their world. Our goal is to provide a stimulating, interactive and nurturing learning environment which encourages each child to develop their social, emotional, physical and intellectual skills to their full potential. Our professionally developed educators tailor learning programmes to suit each individual child.
Young children need lots of love and extra special care and our Infant Care program provides just that for under 2 Year olds. Each dedicated infant room is a comfortable place filled with nurturing surroundings and loving care. Our program offers each child one-on-one and group activities, gentle play and safe exploration. It’s stimulating to the development of young minds without being overwhelming. Each infants needs are different, so we have flexible routines for babies under 12 months. There are areas for sleep, relaxing and personal space and the opportunity for outdoor experiences in the fresh air. And so that you don’t miss out on all those little things that happen each day, your child has their own personal learning journal that captures their journey as it unfolds.
For a toddler the world is a magical place, full of constant learning and exploration. When caring for toddlers we help facilitate that adventure along with positive emotional guidance helping them to understand the boundaries of their independence. We help provide structure to little lives through a consistent routine which includes free play, structured play, group times for music and language, and outdoor experiences. Our encouraging and nurturing staff are sensitive to the individual needs of each toddler’s social and emotional development. And each child has their own personal learning journal which helps you follow them on their exciting journey of self discovery.
As 3 year olds start coming into their own, it’s important they have time and space to explore their independence in a safe and supportive environment. In our 3 year old care programme we help develop autonomy and an openness to learning. We encourage respectfulness and nurture social development skills. Our structured yet flexible programme provides lots of opportunities for individual and group learning in language, music, communications and problem solving skills. And because 3 year olds also have so much energy to burn, our exciting outdoor play areas offer plenty of room for active play. Your child will also have their own personal learning journal so you can see what they’ve been up to.
Our DET approved kindergarten programme, with qualified kinder teachers, offers a secure and encouraging environment for children to develop autonomy, focus on respectful relationships and understand social courtesies. We engage children with individual, small group and whole group experiences and structured group sessions for discussion times, music and language. All activities are designed to be flexible and are focussed on the learning experience rather than the academic outcome, while literacy and numeracy is introduced naturally through everyday experiences. Our 4 year old kindergarten programme is aimed at preparing our young people for school. We focus on helping children understand and deal with their emotions, to be able to initiate friendships and develop self confidence and self esteem. We know that social and emotional readiness will assist in successful entry to school, allowing them to be effective learners.
