Hampshire House Centre overview

Welcome to Hampshire House

Kambala’s early learning centre cares for approximately 100 girls and boys aged between 6 months of age to school age.

Hampshire House is located within Kambala’s campus on the corner of Tivoli Avenue and Bellevue Hill Road in Sydney’s Rose Bay. Our centre operates from 7.30am–6.00pm, 48 weeks per year. Our closure period runs from mid-December until mid-January as well as all public holidays. Parents maintain an agreed pattern of attendance, for a minimum of two days per week. Casual days may be available on request.

Hampshire House has been recognised by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACEQA) as ‘Exceeding the National Quality Standard’.

Hampshire House has three main areas:

Our Nursery allows for hands-on play and learning experiences for eight babies (aged 6 months to 2 years). There is a separate cot room for sleeping.

Our Toddler Room is for children between 2 and 3 years. Children interact, learn and engage in both small and large groups with a focus on open-ended, child-directed learning.

Two Preschool rooms allow children between 3 and 5 years to participate in learning experiences that foster and build upon each child’s skills, abilities, interests and knowledge.

Hampshire House supports the National Quality Framework, which was established in January 2012. The broad goal of the framework is to ensure children in all early childhood services have stimulating positive experiences that foster all aspects of their development.

Our learning incorporates the Reggio Emilia philosophy.

We believe children and adults learn alongside one another. Children’s learning develops from their involvement in long and short-term projects and play. These projects and play develop out of first-hand experiences and their theories about the world. The importance of relationships is fundamental to our philosophy. Collegiality between educators, parents, children and the community is highly valued and well supported. Staff work in teams supported by specialists.

We believe children:

Develop theories about the world and how it works and explore these collaboratively.
Bring different experiences, ideas and opinions to discussion.
Are unafraid of making mistakes and reconstructing their own ideas in a climate of respect.
Develop self-confidence and self-image through discussion, debate and play.
We believe that children should learn to respect and celebrate the diversity in society as represented in our Centre and throughout the Kambala community.
