Rooms for 0-3 Year Olds
Nursery Room (6 weeks to 1 year)
Our 0 - 1 year old Nursery room can have up to 12 children per day, and follows a one educator to 4 children ratio. Our nursery is designed to reflect the home environment to allow the babies to feel safe and secure while they are growing and exploring. A separate, tranquil sleep room helps accommodate each child’s individual sleep routine. The daily routine is relaxed and progressive and follows each child’s individual preferences and routine times regarding bottles, meals, sleep and play.
The nursery team plan for each individual child on a regular basis through a cycle of observation, implementation and evaluation. This means that the children are engaging in activities of interest and working on areas of need. As a nursery child progresses through the nursery room, we will support their growth in major areas such as walking, talking and other developmental milestones.
Toddler Room (1-2 years)
Our 1 - 2 year old Toddler room can have 20 children per day, and follows a one educator to 4 children ratio. The room encourages children to become increasingly involved in activities that foster a love of learning. Children are involved in a range of age-appropriate experiences such as art, music, movement and story telling that aide development and encourage children to grow at their own pace.
The toddler team provide an educational program that focuses on encouraging independence, and the development of language, self expression and fundamental social skills. Educators will provide children with resources and activities according to what they have observed, what the children have shown interest in and/or suggestions from families.
There are core daily routine times which are flexible when it comes to meals, sleep and play, giving children the opportunity to rest when they are tired.
Pre-Kinder Room (2-3 years)
Our 2-3 year old Pre-Kinder room can have 24 children per day, and follows a one educator to 4 children ratio. The room provides a range of small and large group activities as well as areas that support co-operative and solitary play. As children build friendships with peers, educators will guide them through appropriate social behaviours and skills. Every child will be able to engage with educators in meaningful, open interactions that support the acquisition of skills for life and learning.
The room allows adequate space and facilities for development, including an easy-to-access bathroom for toileting and plenty of areas for physical activity. There is also a lot of focus on children’s self-help skills, as well as constant support for your child’s language and self expression.
The pre-kinder team plans, documents and evaluates in accordance with each child’s interests to ensure that children will have ample opportunities to learn. Our program is focused on indoor/outdoor play so the children have access to the outdoors at all times for exploration and skill development.
