The centre’s learning program is informed by their Education for Life Program. Centre educators are trained to identify exciting teachable and learning moments of every day to support children to learn and grow. This program covers learning areas to inspire children to:
This approach extends on the principles and practices of the National Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) which is based on the fundamental belief that children’s lives are characterised as “Belonging, Being and Becoming”.
There are three rooms at the centre covering the following age groupings:
The Rainforest room caters for babies. It provides a calm and caring home-like environment with carefully planned learning areas and their own outdoor playground.
The Ocean room provides toddlers with a welcoming, inspiring environment and the opportunity to explore and influence their own experiences and learning.
The centre’s School Readiness Program aims to increase preschoolers’ independence, encourage them to follow their interests and create their own learning.
Over 21 years in early child education I have come to see how important it is children have a childhood full of play, adventure and investigation. I work with my team to enhance children’s self-concept and social skills as they learn to get along in the world.

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.
