    6 weeks - 12 months

    The Nursery stage is designed for infants aged 6 weeks to 12 months. Caregivers in this stage provide a warm and comforting environment for the youngest children. Emphasis is placed on maintaining routines and accommodating their individual needs, including sleep and feeding.

    Junior Toddlers

    10 - 24 months

    Junior Toddler rooms cater to children aged 10 to 24 months. This stage marks the transition from infancy to toddlerhood, and it's designed to encourage early exploration and social interaction. It often includes age-appropriate play and activities to support motor skill development.


    2 - 3 years

    The Toddler stage is for children aged 2 to 3 years. It's a time of rapid growth and exploration, where the focus shifts towards fostering self-help skills, promoting language development, and encouraging social interactions and play. Activities may include imaginative play, early literacy and numeracy experiences, sensory exploration, and physical activities that enhance coordination and motor skills.

    Junior Kinder

    2.5 - 3.5 years

    Junior Kindy is typically for children aged 2.5 to 3.5 years. During this stage, there's a greater emphasis on structured activities and fostering early literacy and numeracy skills. Social-emotional development becomes a focus, along with encouraging problem-solving abilities and independence.


    3 - 4 Years

    Pre-Kindy is for children aged 3 to 4 years, just before they transition to kindergarten. This stage prepares children by further developing literacy and numeracy skills, fostering critical thinking, promoting social skills, and encouraging independence and self-regulation. The aim is to ensure they are ready for a smooth transition to school.


    4 - 5 years

    Kindergarten is the final stage before children transition to formal schooling. At this stage, children have developed foundational skills and are ready for more structured learning experiences. The focus is on further developing literacy and numeracy skills, fostering critical thinking, promoting social skills, and encouraging independence and self-regulation. The emphasis is on preparing children for a successful transition to primary school.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    We provide most of the essentials that may be needed throughout the day. We ask that you pack and label; spare clothes, water bottle, comfort items/dummies. And if your child requires a sleeping bag, milk bottles, formula, or breast milk.

    We offer orientation sessions for families to come along before the first day to have a short play with us. These sessions are usually close to the first day and act as a good lead in. It gives you, your child, and the educators time to get to know each other and the opportunity to ask any questions or provide important information. These sessions are usually organized once enrolment is confirmed, they last for 2 hours and are free of charge. Talking about it at home is also a great way to get your child excited for all the amazing experiences they will get to be a part of.

    Be positive! Make the drop off a happy experience and take a few minutes to help your child to settle in. The mornings can be busy, but taking some time to find an activity your child enjoys and saying goodbye can help for a smoother start to their day. There will always be a warm and caring educator on hand to help. You are always welcome to give the centre a call after you have left for an update.

    The educator to child ratio varies depending on state and territory, we meet or exceed this ratio. 0 to 24 months the ratio is 1:4 in all states and territories. 24 to 36 months the ratio is 1:5 in QLD and SA, and 1:4 in VIC. Over 36 months the ratio is 1:11 in QLD, SA and VIC. You can find out more on the ACECQA website.

    It is important to take the time to find a centre where you feel confident and comfortable and know your child will be safe, happy, and protected. Find a centre that provides a learning environment where careful guidance and role modelling by educators can help children become competent, independent and develop valuable life skills. It is also important to consider aspects that will impact your family such as location, cost, and inclusions.
