We believe the way a child experiences the world in their early years, influences the way they see and treat it in later life. It’s these insights which guide our educators and informs the learning opportunities we give every child enrolled in our campus.
That today’s children will shape tomorrow’s world,
That the best experiences are the greatest lessons,
Children have the world at their feet and the future in their hands,
And that every experience makes a world of difference.

Educators at Oxenford Junior Campus ensure that children feel safe, supported and challenged to learn new things and participate in new experiences. The dedicated, diverse group of educators seek to make sure that the environment is inviting, natural, stimulating and engaging, and that it reflects the children’s personalities and interests. Educators forge strong bonds and build relationships with the families at the centre, to ensure that the children feel right at home. Parents can access photos and updates about their child’s day through the centre’s free app.
Educators strive to create a calm, comfortable environment where each child feels safe. The highly trained team of educators are hand-picked to support the children and their learning. Educators value their centre’s connection to the local community, as they understand that sharing the history and culture of the area is a powerful way to give the children a sense of belonging and connection.
Educators want to give children the best possible start on their next steps at school, which is why they focus on the children's social development, confidence and independence at a young age. The high quality program helps children become active in their own learning and sees them evolve into confident, creative and successful learners.
The children enjoy their food together where they also develop important social and self-help skills under the watchful eyes of their educators. Meal time is an additional aspect of the curriculum.
All meals are prepared onsite, sometimes with the children’s assistance so they learn about healthy eating and nutrition.
All allergies are of course catered for.

Pre-school is a planned educational program for children in the years before a child commences school. Children are usually aged between 3 and 5 years of age.

In January 2012 the National Quality Framework (NQF) came into effect across Australia.
The purpose of the NQF is to improve and standardise the quality of child care through a range of measures including better staff to child ratios, higher staff qualifications and an assessment and rating system designed to promote continuous improvement.
Under the NQF child care services are assessed and rated against the National Quality Standards (NQS).
The NQS measures the quality of early childhood education and care in Australia. It will cover
most long day care, family day care, preschool/kindergarten and outside school hours care services.
Under these standards child care services will be assessed and rated against the seven quality areas, 18 standards and 58 elements that make up the NQS.
