School Readiness (3-5 yrs)
Our Preschool rooms have been designed to facilitate the learning required for your child to be a resilient and confident learner, prepared for the transition to Primary School. We know that all children are capable of realizing their full potential if they are in the right environment. That is why we use Project based learning, appropriate technology and enrichment programs to spark the best experiences. Our Lifelong Learning School Readiness program stimulates young minds, builds confidence, resilience and positive self-image, and supports children’s transition to school, preparing them for a positive start.
Where children learn
Our classrooms and learning environments include Lifelong Learning Curriculum zones to encourage children to try new things every day. With both indoor and outdoor learning taking place, children can feel refreshed and comfortable as they develop their understanding of the world around them – and of their own potential.
How children learn
Children learn best when they believe that they can. Through a rich combination of play-based and intentional teaching, our programs allow them the freedom to explore their interests and ideas, and to contribute to learning and discovery within their classroom of friends, their confidence will grow every day.
Our nursery rooms and our program, Healthy Beginnings, provides your baby an environment that promotes a holistic growth and development approach to learning through the first year of life. We provide a warm and safe space for our caring and gentle educators to nurture and develop relationships with your baby, so your child will grow trust and a sense of belonging.
Our Toddler room environments and Lifelong Learning Curriculum incorporates the Abecedarian Approach which is a progressive and personalised way for toddlers to learn to communicate their thoughts, emotions and intentions. Our educators take into account your child's opinions and ideas, keeping them engaged throughout their learning journey.
Our Preschool rooms have been designed to facilitate the learning required for your child to be a resilient and confident learner, prepared for the transition to Primary School.
