Welcome to Nido Early School Waurn Ponds
  • Unleash curiosity with diverse activities like cooking, dance, languages, music, sports, yoga, and more.
  • Immerse children in Reggio Emilia-inspired spaces, fostering hands-on sensory experiences.
  • Prioritize body and mind nourishment with exclusive, sugar-free wholefood menus prepared in on-site kitchens.

Catering to children aged 6 weeks to 6 years, Nido Early School offers a warm and nurturing learning environment. Following a Reggio Emilia inspired approach, the educators engage the children in fun, play-based learning. They deliver an innovative program that helps children to develop the skills they’ll need to successfully transition to primary school. 

The light-filled interiors are bright and inspiring, drawing the children into their learning. The rooms are well resourced with calming, natural resources, with each room catering to different learning styles and offering ample space for both individual play and group activities. 

Outdoors, the children are free to explore the incredible play area and immerse themselves in nature. While they play, they develop their gross motor and physical skills and also work on their social skills, such as sharing and communication. The children are encouraged to use their imagination and create their own adventures while they play. 

Conveniently located close to public transport, the service also offers ample parking on site to help with drop off and pick up. Why not book a tour of this welcoming and enriching service today?
