Summer Program Sessions
Your child is invited to join us during our Summer Program! Throughout December, we have planned additional exciting activities to help your child continue their early learning journey whilst benefiting from a rich variety of learning opportunities.
The Importance of Friendships and Relationships in Childcare
Friendships and positive relationships in the early years are a vital aspect of childhood and a critical enabler for learning. Research tells us that children who struggle to be socially competent by the time they reach formal school face some real challenges socially and academically, and one reason we work so hard to help young children form positive relationships and early friendships.
How Friendships are Formed
We know how confusing and conflicting it can be for families trying to make sense of many different parent-facing strategies in the pursuit of helping their child thrive before five. Our Lifelong Learning Curriculum has a clear commitment to embedding proven and regarded practices in our early learning environments to ensure your child has the right types of experiences.
Guiding your Toddlers Future Behaviours and Relationships
When children reach the Toddler stage, their confidence blooms as they know you are there to catch them if they fall.
Why Friendships Before ‘Big School’ Are So Important
Research continues to highlight the importance of the first five years of a child’s life as the most critical period in the life span for brain development (Fox & Geddes, 2016). The richness and quality of early experiences during this critical time have lifelong impacts on future trajectories at school and beyond (OECD 2016).

A day in the life – Childcare and your child’s development
This month, we wanted to share with you a little more about early childhood education, what it means, and how it works, and give you a glimpse of what your child may actually experience while with us each day.
A Day of ‘Awe’ and ‘Wonder’ in your Nursery
When thinking about a typical day in the Nursery, it is common to have preconceptions about what happens and how the educators facilitate learning. Through online research and centre tours, you will most likely obtain information that highlights how the infant room follow the baby’s routine, focuses on relationships, provides sensory play, and the role of the educator may be described as an expert multitasker.
A day in the life of a Toddler
Every day in our Toddler room is filled with different types of learning that your child’s Educators have intentionally planned to support children’s growth and learning outcomes. From the moment you drop them off to our Educators to the moment your Toddler runs back to your arms with a big smile in the afternoon, your child’s day is enriched by our age-specific 1–3-year-old Early Experiences Curriculum, to ensure every child learns something fascinating and exciting every day.
