Infant Daycare (0-1 years)
Our nursery provides a warm, safe environment for your baby. It’s well-resourced with caring and gentle educators who develop nurturing relationships with your baby. We recognise the importance of maintaining your home routine to our best ability to ensure your baby’s daily transition into our care is always as smooth as possible.
During this first year of your baby’s life, they are developing a picture of themselves based on the experiences they have and the relationships they create. Our Healthy Beginnings programsupports your baby’s growth and development by offering lots of different activities so they can engage in essential sensory exploration to enhance their cognitive and motor skills. We do things like playing with soft toys, feeling different textures, arts and crafts, tummy time, mirror play, listening to music, story time, outdoor play and food experiences.
Specially designed with safety features and age-appropriate toys and furniture, our nursery is a place where your baby can freely learn about the world in a cosy, safe environment.
Early Years Child Care (1-3 years)
Our centre provides a stimulating and fun environment to enhance your child’s learning in their early years. Learning in fact starts long before school, with the first five years of a child’s life being crucial to laying the foundations for their ability to learn throughout their later years. We have specifically designed our Early Experiences program to deliver real-life learning experiences for your child. As a toddler, children are opening up to new challenges as their communication skills expand and they learn to concentrate, experiment and play. Our educators support this magical phase through a program of play-based learning activities to help them explore their own interests and strengths.
Australia’s Early Years Learning Framework, Belonging, Being and Becoming, is at the heart of our approach to early years education. The framework’s emphasis is on play-based learning. This includes things like singing to help your child learn about language; drawing with crayons to help them express their feelings and encourage writing; playing with shapes and patterns to develop their problem-solving skills; and group activities to build their social skills.
At our centre, you will find plenty of spaces that inspire your child’s creativity and imagination, so important for building social skills and self-confidence. Our toys, play equipment and resources are the types that would typically be found in the home, to help your child feel comfortable.
Preschool (3-5 years)
Our exceptional preschool program provides every opportunity to prepare your child for a positive start to their schooling years. Here our educators strike a balance between child-initiated and teacher-led activities.
While still focusing on attentive care and play-based learning, our educators will foster your child’s
natural desire to engage with educational programs for life. We deliver a School Readiness program that specialises in allowing your child to slowly adapt to the new school environment socially, emotionally and mentally before they even arrive. This program teaches the children a variety of literacy and numeracy skills, including how to write their names, identification of simple numbers and shapes, recognition skills, such as identifying their school bags, and a range of communications skills, tools and tactics.
When the time comes, your child will be ready to spread their wings and fly.
