Early Years Child Care

Our child care 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.

Early Childhood Program

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.
