Our Colyton centre is a brand new, purpose built facility with a class-leading fit-out. It has been designed to provide children with a learning environment that promotes opportunities for exploration, investigation, imagination and early learning.
We cater for children aged from 6 weeks to 6 years. Our opening hours are from 7:00am – 6:00pm, 5 days per week and we are open 52 weeks of the year (except for Public holidays).
Children are born to explore and learn, with each child developing at their own pace. Our educators incorporate experiences that challenge children at a developmentally appropriate level, that facilitates each child’s growth and development. Our curriculum is flexible and individually tailored to each child. It is stimulating for children and promotes children’s social, emotional, cognitive, language and physical development.
We offer Play based learning that allows children to discover, negotiate, take risks, create meaning and solve problems. These skills are the vital foundations for developing literacy, numeracy and social skills as well as the transition to school.
These environments enrich children’s awareness of their surroundings as well as their understanding of the importance of sustainability.Today’s children represent the future generation and it is our responsibility as educators to assist children in realising the significance of caring for and protecting our environment. This responsibility is also reflected in the National Quality Standards that we contribute to a sustainable future.
Embedding these practices into our curriculum and everyday learning is imperative to enable children to practice this knowledge and learning to ensure it becomes a lifelong skill for a better future.
We believe that facilitating and implementing the best approach in early learning is fundamental to the building of relationships with all children in our care. We support children’s abilities to successfully manage their emotions and enhance the development of their self-esteem through encouragement, participation in our curriculum and interaction with their peers. We implement this knowledge by ensuring educators take advantage of opportunities to interact with children in ways that deliberately extend children’s learning.
Our educators and teachers are qualified in early childhood education and have considerable experience and knowledge of early learning. They strive to create a safe and nurturing environment for your child, where they can play, explore, learn and develop friendships.
