About

At Explore & Develop Artarmon, it is our vision to create a high-quality Early Childhood environment which strives to continually grow and evolve and impacts the lives of children, families, educators and the wider community, in many ways. Our service’s philosophy supports this, drawing on the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child, and the Australian National Law and Regulations.With these, and our professional ethics and Reconciliation Action Plan, we aim to create an environment which promotes diversity, inclusion and social equity.

Supported by strong relationships created at the service, our objective is to provide a play-based curriculum for children that encourages thinking, investigating, exploring and problem solving, using a variety of mediums. Our curriculum is guided by the National Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) as well as many other Early Childhood teaching theories and curriculum perspectives.

In relation to school-readiness and transition to school, Explore & Develop Artarmon has a strong commitment to provide an environment which focuses on developing skills that will not only benefit children when they go to school, but also throughout life. We begin this process right from the babies room, and focus on developing skills and dispositions such as perseverance, conflict resolution, empathy, curiosity, creativity and self-expression. It is our aim to develop diverse strategies and approaches to learning to ensure children transition to school feeling confident and capable about their ability to take on learning challenges.

Individually owned and operated

Explore & Develop Artarmon is owned and operated by two Early Childhood teachers who work closely to inspire and lead educators in providing a high-quality curriculum, and a secure and stimulating environment for children and families.

Exceeding National Quality Standard

Our service was one of the first in Australia to be assessed under the National Quality Framework as “Exceeding the National Quality Standard” across all seven quality areas. We have maintained our “Exceeding” rating again in 2018 and continue to work consistently in reflection on our daily practice and continual improvement planning.

Community and family focused

Developing consistent and trusting relationships between children, families and educators is our main focus, which assists in fostering a strong sense of community and provides a solid foundation for developing the children’s learning environment. As educators move their class through the service each year, we are able to support and maintain these close relationships.

Experienced teachers and culturally diverse team

Our team exceeds the national standards for qualifications and ratios and we strongly value the extension of professional learning and long term retention of excellent educators. Our educators represent a diverse range of cultural backgrounds, languages and experiences.

Inclusive, anti-bias play-based curriculum

Our service’s philosophy supports a broad and inclusive play-based curriculum which focuses on supporting children’s dispositions for learning as well as investigating their ideas, perceptions and concepts within the world around them.

Natural outdoor environment extending beyond

Our outdoor space is richly resourced with open-ended and natural materials where children are encouraged to experience all of the elements and broad learning opportunities that the outdoors provide. We regularly venture outside of the service on bush walks, and to engage with the local community.

We have really loved our journey with Explore and Develop Artarmon. They focus on what really matters. Authentic immersion with nature, teaching children how to be kind and well educated. Educators are amazing and most of them have been working there for a couple of years. Our 2 children from baby to senior rooms have developed a strong relationship with some educators and I can't thank you them enough for being there for my kids, for their kindness and love. Also, a special mention to Krystal, passionated and devoted to her job to help and support the families. We really felt loved and supported.

Very commited and professional team of teachers and educators. The environments are very well designed and maintained. Their transparency with communicating their learning program, policies and other relevant information is second to none. We couldn't be happier with our choice.

My husband and I were so nervous about sending our son to daycare, but we couldn't be happier with how he has been cared for by the Explore and Develop team. The staff genuinely care about the children under their care, which is what every parent wants when sending their child to daycare. The organisation of the centre is highly professional, as are the staff, and I feel well informed and in the loop about everything that is going on. The menu is outstanding, and being able to look at the app to see what my son has been eating and how much he has been eating is very reassuring. The centre's environment is really outstanding, and my son gets so much out of the activities and his interactions with the staff and other kids. He's happy to go to daycare in the morning and he comes home a happy boy of an afternoon, which tells me that he has had a fun day and has been well taken care of. We are so happy with our choice to send our son to the exceptional Explore and Develop and absolutely recommend the centre to anyone in the area.

Our son had a fantastic experience here. Creative learning experiences for the kids and a lovely outdoor environment. The educators are passionate about their roles and we appreciated that there was a low staff turnover so he felt secure and safe every day.

We have two children attending Explore and Develop. Our eldest is in the Senior’s room and has been going since he was 4 months old. Our youngest is in the toddler’s room and started at 7 months old. Our kids settled in straight away. The staff are amazing and make it feel like a home away from home. Each morning our kids race out of the car and are thrilled to be there. They have a great mixture of indoor and outdoor activities and the kids love the family atmosphere. The staff are very adaptable to the needs of individual children and are very friendly.
