About Explore & Develop - Narraweena

   8 ratings more

Here, at Explore & Develop Narraweena we view our relationships with our children and their families as the foundation for our curriculum. We incorporate their voices into our program as we strive to empower and foster autonomy within the children in our care.

Through ongoing professional development, our educators ensure that their practices and approach to early childhood delivers a high standard of education and care and reflects both theoretical and current perspectives. In conjunction with this, we are guided by The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) which encompasses the three aspects of belonging, being and becoming.

We adopt a holistic view of children which enables them to grow across all areas of development. We prepare children for a life beyond these walls and foster both curiosity and independence as we aim for our children to leave our service as confident and involved learners. There is a focus on natural environments both indoors and out which promotes our children to develop both a love of and affinity with the natural world.

I've been truly blessed to have my kiddies in the care at educators at E&D NARRAWEENA for 5 years. Sabrina and Amanda have built a creative and loving environment for our little humans to thrive. Staff turnover is so low (my 2nd has often had the same carers as my 1st, born 2 years apart) The educators are truly invested in your bub’s development and happiness and they are all amazing communicators. In addition you get lovely updates and a newsletter via email and a development book that is updated throughout the year. The space itself is an extension of the natural environment that surrounds it. Trees, gardens, Gym equipment and plenty of room inside and out. Creative artwork covers the walls and makes you feel at home;) I honestly could not recommend enough. Worth the wait list!
We love Explore and Develop Naraweena and will be sad to leave when we move. The managers Sabrina and Amanda are great and answer any and every question you have. We are overly happy and confident in the staff (especially Ashleigh!) who have provided tones of love and care to our daughter since she was seven months old.
