About

Explore & Develop Macquarie Park's vision for our service is to provide the highest possible quality outcomes for children in our care, through innovation within the Early Childhood industry, exceptional education, celebration of our community, and leadership with heart.

We follow The Early Years Learning Framework in developing our program to ensure it offers a variety of child-directed, child-inspired and educator-guided opportunities. We value play-based learning as an ideal context for young children's development and this is reflected in our practice. An interest based approach takes the whole child into account, focusing on their social, interpersonal, emotional, physical, cognitive and developmental needs. We believe that children have a right to be appreciated as they are at this present moment. Each child's developmental journey is unique and occurs at its own pace. Our role as educators is to be able to be with the child during this developmental journey with love, care and guidance.

Our educational programs are derived from current research and our educators undergo continual training in evidence-based approaches to early childhood education. We have strong partnerships with local universities and undertake several research projects each year. This ensures we remain at the forefront of our field for and to the benefit of our children, families and educators.

Our curriculum moves beyond the classroom. By engaging an Outdoor Learning Coordinator and a minibus, this allows us to provide valuable experiences in the great outdoors. All age groups travel on excursions to discover that we belong to a wider community, allowing us to build relationships with local initiatives and services. Key programs include Bush School and Swim School.

We believe that through developmental cognitive neuroscience, mindfulness training, social emotional learning and positive psychology, our staff and children will reduce stress, build resilience and self-regulation skills to optimise their capacity for the learning journey at Explore & Develop.

Featured Reviews

We cannot give Explore and Develop Macquarie Park enough praise for all the amazing experiences they put together on a daily basis for C (and in previous years for M too). When your children jump out of bed in the morning and cannot wait to get to their daycare centre, I think this tells you everything you need to know about the environment that is being fostered there. Thank you to everyone who is part of the Macquarie Park staffing for all you do from all of us!

With my first child, we changed 2 others daycare centres until we finally in E&D Macq Park. I'm not a very fussy parent but cleanliness, being welcomed and a caring carers are our top priorities and others are just not quite working for us. E&Dcome with glowing recommendation from one of our friends who already enrolled and true to words, E&D Macq Park are just amazing! The program is tailored with inputs from parents, the centre is always smells nice and clean, great outdoor area, lots of appropriate age books and Dolly Parton Library which I love so much and of course the Educators!!! I couldn’t single out one educator because they are all just super people who does a fantastic job caring after our kids and teaching them the world. Kudos to them all!!
