Babies – 18 months – nurture, comfort and support
Within our nursery team, we wholeheartedly recognise the significance of creating a comfortable and nurturing setting where young children can begin their journey as budding learners.
The pace of learning in infants is truly remarkable! We are devoted to not only embracing and cherishing each baby in our care but also to providing an environment that mirrors the comforts of home and offers secure spaces for exploration.
Our educators are acutely aware of the paramount importance of instilling a sense of safety and support within young children, particularly as they embark on comprehending the vast world around them. Infants flourish when they receive ample one-on-one attention, and to facilitate this, we maintain a low ratio of babies per caregiver. This enables swift responsiveness to the unique needs of each baby.
Undoubtedly, continuity of care takes precedence as infants require the time to establish attachments and trust in their daycare caregiver. As routines become familiar, children start to cultivate a sense of belonging, resulting in a burgeoning confidence. Our dedicated team maintains open lines of communication with both you and your family, ensuring we understand each child’s individual needs and sharing the memorable highlights of their journey.
The nursery room we provide furnishes a haven that combines nurturing, learning, and tranquility, thus affording the child a platform to explore and thrive.
Pre Kindy 2 – 3 years – inspire, challenge and adventure
Our pre-kindy toddler room boasts an array of natural settings and open-ended learning opportunities that inspire children to embark on explorations filled with imagination and creativity.
Toddlers, by their very nature, are in constant motion, inherently embracing a role as active learners. Their innate curiosity and love for play are nurtured and celebrated as we furnish a joyful, challenging, and invigorating environment. By establishing a dynamic and adaptable space, we pave the way for a journey of discovery where children thrive by wandering, exploring, and navigating their burgeoning perceptions of the world.
Within this setting, the social and emotional development of the toddlers flourishes as they engage with their peers. We provide ample play-based learning opportunities that may not always be feasible within a home environment.
At the core of our approach is the understanding that play is the conduit for learning. We have meticulously designed this pre-kinder space to be age-appropriate, fostering engagement with music, dance, art, and dramatic play. This holistic environment is dedicated to promoting active involvement and learning, encapsulating the unique essence of this developmental stage.
Kindy 3 – 4 years – independence, socialise, grow – Kindy
An explosion in language development, the introduction to taking turns, and the blossoming of social interactions serve as the driving force behind the fully funded Victorian government kindergarten program.
Our commitment extends to delivering a top-notch kindergarten program, meticulously tailored to 3-year-olds. Aligned with the national quality framework, this program equips children with enhanced social adeptness, emotional coping skills, and improved attention capabilities.
Within this program lies the bedrock for literacy and numeracy, all woven seamlessly through play-based learning that ignites curiosity and prompts exploration. This holistic approach to learning sets the stage for fortified academic and social pathways during the early years.
Our dedicated Educators strive to craft immersive learning environments that foster inspiration among children. These spaces are curated to fuel engagement, nurture connections with peers, and facilitate the blossoming of friendships. Simultaneously, we integrate elements of sleep, rest, and relaxation, ensuring children are rejuvenated for their afternoon of exploration.
As a child advances to the 4-year-old Kindergarten phase, they harness the skills they’ve developed through play and apply them to more concentrated learning. This process of ‘scaffolding’ skills and knowledge fosters effective learning habits, cultivates deeper literacy and numeracy proficiencies, and bolsters emotional resilience. This transition is integral to their educational journey, laying the groundwork for comprehensive growth.
