Our babies’ rooms are intended to be an extension of the home, to ease your little one’s transition from home to childcare. The educators in our babies’ rooms focus predominantly on supporting children to achieve developmental milestones for the under 2 age range in physical, cognitive and language areas.
A primary focus of our toddler room is building secure attachments between educators and children. Through consistency of educators, familiar routines, and open communication, we aim to bridge the gap between home and childcare, supporting the children’s confidence and trust in the care environment.
With the Junior Kindy age group, we focus largely on supporting children’s social and emotional growth. Children between ages 2-3 tend to experience very strong emotions but may have not yet learned the skills to process or control these new and sometimes overwhelming feelings.
Our play-based program in the Senior Kindy room incorporates early literacy and mathematical concepts, social and emotional development, independence, and responsibility. The preparation for the preschool year starts now, and our literacy program ILR (I Love Reading) is in full swing.
The year before a child starts school is an important time for us to secure the foundations for a love of learning. We not only promote ‘school readiness’ in our preschool program, but also ‘life-readiness’. Through predictable routines, familiar resources, research/project based learning and regular group experiences.
The benefits of extracurricular activities in early childhood development cannot be overstated, they give children fun opportunities to learn new life-skills and build confidence.
These are essential, not only as they transition from early education through to school, but also as children grow into healthy, happy adults.

Yoga is a great activity to give children the ultimate head start. Yoga provides all the vital foundations for physical, mental, and emotional development.
Children who learn another language before age five use the same part of the brain to acquire that second language that they use to learn their mother tongue.
This program offers the children the opportunity to grow in trust through use of repetition (for children to successfully learn the songs) and the chance to perform for others.
Children participating in this program will not only improve their physical development; they will also gain the knowledge and confidence that they will need to lead a happy and healthy life.
