Individual programs are designed for each group utilising each teacher’s particular style.

Each program is based on:

  • A love of learning and discovery by offering a wide range of play based experiences
  • A curriculum centred on creative experiences where children’s individual interests, ideas, culture and abilities are realised and encouraged
  • Learning spaces that inspire children aesthetically and intellectually: spaces that reinforce connections with their home, family, community and the world
  • An early learning setting that is sensitive to the enormous developmental changes that occur during the early years: by acknowledging the children’s need for exploration, experimentation and discovery as their vocabulary and intellectual skills expand rapidly
  • A balance between each child striving for their independence and their need for continual reassurance
  • Outdoor and Indoor spaces that are designed to engage every child in quality experiences in both built and natural environments which provide a rich and diverse range of experiences.
  • Children are encouraged to become environmentally responsible and to show respect for the environment.
  • Promoting each child’s agency, enabling them to make choices and decisions which influence events and their world.


programAs part of each program, we are also committed to providing the children a range of incursions occurring throughout the year. Incursions may include such things as:

  • Musical performers
  • Music and movement program
  • Artist in residence program
  • Chicken hatching/Rabbit rearing
  • PMP (Perceptual Motor Program)
  • Theatrical and drama performances
  • Wildlife incursion
  • Mobile farmyard
  • Drawing program
