The first five years of a child’s life are the foundation that shapes children’s future health, happiness, growth, development and learning achievement at school, in the family and community, and in life in general. It is our role as Educators to support and challenge children to strive for their best during this very important time in their lives. We try to inspire children to love learning so they are driven to discover new things every day.
With our dynamic environments and programs we provide a strong foundation for creative learning, language development, social and emotional connections, physical and fine motor development and self help skills.
Our naturescape playground is open to mixed age play and promotes bonds between siblings in care, it allows children of all ages to access all areas of the play environment, fostering independence and risk taking. With staff supporting children as they explore things that challenge their skill set, they are becoming more confident and capable learners. Incorporating nature in the play environment provides children with more opportunities to develop gross-motor skills and contact with nature has been associated with a number of health benefits for children, such as improved cognitive function, increased creativity and improved interaction with adults.
Our Educators are caring professionals who are passionate about providing a creative, fun and enriching environment for all children and have a strong commitment to meeting the needs of your child and your family. We are dedicated to providing ongoing professional development opportunities for our educators to up skill and refresh their industry knowledge and passion.
