Thank you and your amazing staff for loving our kids like they're their own family. They definitely are family to our kids and us, being with them so often and long!! During these especially difficult, uncertain and stressful times they continue to be there and provide stability, nurturance and constant love to our little humans.

Avenues Early Learning Centre Aspley follows the Reggio Emilia approach. Educators view every child as a competent, capable, and unique learner, with a vast array of skills, knowledge, abilities, life experiences, and endless possibilities. The centre endeavors to build, nurture, and share each child’s learning journey by encouraging their uniquely different qualities of character, wellbeing, and identity.
The team believe it is their role to foster each child’s understanding of respect and help build their resilience. Educators guide children to be active participants in their learning and to become responsible citizens within their community and the world.
The children are offered a variety of educational activities throughout their day. Sensory based activities are a favourite – the children love engaging with playdough, goop, water play and more. Art experiences such as painting, collage, and drawing encourage imagination and creativity. Construction with blocks, magnets and recycled items like loose parts encourages divergent thinking and problem-solving skills.
At Avenues Early Learning Centre Aspley, the educators are a group of sector professionals who are dedicated to seeing each child reach their full potential. They are committed to supporting the children and their families to help the children grow and develop through their most important years. The centre’s educational programs are inspired by Reggio Emilia and foster the children’s love of learning through following their interests and providing engaging and exciting opportunities and experiences.
I have called Avenues Aspley my home for the last 5 and a half years, joining the family in 2016 and working as part of the management team from there. Since then, I have walked beside my team of Exceptional Educators, Children & Families, as we have grown in so many ways. We have welcomed beautiful children and families into our Avenues community - one being my own beautiful baby girl, who joined our tribe in 2021. We have established relationships with our local schools and community members who help us to strengthen our understanding of the world around us.
I love to meet new families and learn all about them and their uniqueness. I am invested in gaining an understanding of each family that walks through my door and be one of the people that encourages them to reach their full potential. I offer support for all those times where families are unsure, a laugh for the funnier moments we have when raising our little ones and a shoulder for the harder times. I am here for every moment beside my families. I cannot wait to meet you and welcome you into my big family.
Simon, Centre Manager, Avenues Early Learning Centre Aspley
I have recently joined the management team here at Aspley, after working for another Avenues service for the past 11 years. It’s been an amazing opportunity to learn and grow with the company and I am loving being able to mentor and inspire my team to be the best educators they can be and make positive changes to this amazing centre.
Monny, Assistant Manager and Educational Leader
I’ve been working here at avenues Aspley for 5 years and a few months now and I’ve seen the centre change in many amazing ways. I couldn’t think of a better centre to be at. Management is always so understanding and are flexible with staff and their needs, co workers have become like family members and we all communicate with each other! The families we have here are all truly special and amazing!
Tegan, Kindy Educator
I’ve been working at Aspley Avenues for just over 5 years. I work with children of all ages to assist and watch them grow and develop. Over my time I have watched children grow and change into bigger children ready for school. At Avenues we are a team of welcoming and exciting educators that encourage and support children of all ages through interactions and their interest. We are excited to welcome new friends to our centre.
Nicole, Nursery Educator
The in-house chef at Avenues Early Learning Centre Aspley provides freshly made morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, and a late snack for the children. All food is all prepared in accordance with the Australian Health Eating Guide and everything is created with the children’s health and nutrition in mind.
The centre has a herb garden which allows the children to care for the plants which are then used in the kitchen for their lunches. The children enjoy meals such as chicken fried rice, pumpkin pasta, homemade beef & vegetable sausage rolls, sandwiches & wraps, as well as vegetable and beef lasagne.
The centre offers unique outdoor areas, with a large balcony area upstairs which can transform from a playspace into an outdoor dining room, a place for children to enjoy their meals and sharing in conversations with friends.
Alexandra is ten months old and loves going on excursions in the pram with her nursery friends. Today they’re heading to the local park to see what birds they can spot in the trees.
Alexandra is playing with some soft blocks on the mat before she heads off for a nap in the sleeping area. Her educator reads her some books before preparing her for a rest.
Alexandra loves music, and today the educators have set out lots of interesting objects that make musical sounds, such as shakers, shells, whistles and other instruments.
Emmett is two and a half and loves playing outside. Today the children enjoy some fun soccer games with the Ginger Sports team, kicking balls to each other and trying to score a goal.
Emmett is joining in with his friends for some messy play. The educators have set up a huge tub full of colourful slime, and the little ones are having some fun squelching it in their hands.
Emmett and his friends gather on the mat to listen to their special visitors talk about egg hatching. They get to meet some little chicks and take turns holding them.
Maddy is four and a half years old and loves visiting the centre’s art atelier for the art program. Today she is working on a colourful collage using leaves she collected on a recent walk.
Maddy is off to school next year and can’t wait for today’s visit from the local school. A teacher is going to talk to them about what a typical day at school is like, and what they’ll need to pack in their bag.
Maddy is having some fun in the sandpit. Her educator has set out some cooking equipment, so Maddy pretends to bake some cupcakes with her friends, decorating them with leaves and twigs.

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.
