School Readiness Program
Our government-approved Preschool program and stimulating classrooms and playgrounds further encourage your child’s growth and development, while helping them build confidence socially, emotionally and physically. We embed state-approved early learning curriculums to ensure your child feels comfortable in a classroom environment when it comes time to transition into Big School.
Incursions and Excursions
Children have so many interests, and we engage their curiosity with a wide range of incursions and excursions. These programs provide further opportunities to connect with health and wellbeing, animals and nature, and the larger community.
Healthy Children Learning Approach
In our centre we link our educational programs, incursions, excursions, events and day-to-day activities based on six key themes:
By focusing our activities, learnings, incursions, excursions and more around centralised these themes, we are encouraging children to develop their understanding and core skills in each of these key areas of life.
As a part of the centre's Healthy World focus, we prioritise a sustainable approach to connecting with the world around us. Children can explore conservation, social responsibility, and the environment through activities such as gardening, recycling projects, environmental days, or recycling stations.
Our play-based learning approach is a unique, research-driven approach to early years education that is designed to grow a love of lifelong learning in every child, from babies to school age and beyond. Play is a way that children interact with the world around them, helping them develop social skills they’ll use every day to interact and communicate with others.
Our nursery rooms are designed to care for children from 6 weeks up to 18 months. We incorporate the Circle of Security and Primary Caregiver approaches to support our littlest learners during this exciting period of development. The nursery is designed with spaces for babies to explore and play, sleep safely, and enjoy their meals. Our Educators will provide a daily record of all feeds, sleeps and moods.
Our toddler rooms are designed to care for children from 18 months to 3 years old. Careful care is taken to ensure the rooms reflect the interests of the toddlers and to stimulate enquiry, exploration, and engagement, while also providing welcoming quiet spaces for ‘alone time’. Educators encourage play-based learning activities to help build confidence and encourage social skills.
Our preschool rooms are designed to care for children from 3 years to 5 years old. They offer state-approved early learning curriculums as part of our School Readiness program and ensures that each child feels confident and prepared to enter a classroom environment. Activities involving science, technology, math, reading, writing, community events and excursions are the key focus in this room.

Pre-school is a planned educational program for children in the years before a child commences school. Children are usually aged between 3 and 5 years of age. Pre-school may take place in a range of settings including a purpose built building, in a community setting, a school, as part of a long day care centre or a mobile or visiting service.
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.
