During a baby’s first few months of life, they begin to rapidly absorb information and learn about the world around them by engaging their senses in different ways. Our Baby Cottage is a fully-equipped classroom for the smallest Kangaroos in nursery, complete with a secure sensory garden that is perfect to explore during this impressionable time in their early lives. Our specialised baby nurses work closely with our families to develop a trusting relationship and ensure the level of attention and care mirrors the child’s home environment.
During the age of 1-2 years old, children will begin to experiment with new ways of interacting with the world around them which will drastically improve their mobility and coordination. Our toddler rooms are designed to encourage the children to take action and discover more about the world through play. They are able to explore and learn at their own pace with the support and guidance of our passionate practitioners.
As the children get older they will naturally begin to develop intricate and unique personalities which results in them gaining a clear understanding of their likes and dislikes. In this age group, we focus heavily on child-led learning and support the children as the pioneers of their own developmental journey. We encourage communication and collaborative exercises that provide valuable learning opportunities for the class as a whole.
Our large Foundation Stage area flows seamlessly between indoor classrooms and an outdoor exploration zone. The children are recognised as capable and independent learners who are brimming with innovation and inventiveness. Our Foundation Stage program focuses on character building as well as preparing our little ones for big school, which is just around the corner! The children will begin to master their phonics and early writing skills, as well as focus on more complex maths and science concepts.
