Age Description No. of places

0 to 2 years old

In our 0 to 2 age group, we plan experiences and routines for engagement and learning. We give varied learning experiences which help children to connect to their environment and people.

For all young children, a sense of security and attachment is important. We have a specific focus on helping children feel safe and be confident in a new environment.

8 places each day.

2 to 3 years old

In our 2 to 3 age group we extend children’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical development. Children get to work in small groups and develop their sharing and cooperation skills. We encourage some independent skills, but it’s balanced with being mindful of the wider community.

8 places each day.

In our 3 to 5 year age group is full of exploration and engagement. We encourage self-selection of learning materials that follow individual interests, while also practising intentional teaching. We work with children on projects, extending their ideas and understanding of the world.

Our approach to behaviour guidance

Using a positive approach to behaviour guidance, we focus on understanding everyone’s rights. This helps us be inclusive while making sure everyone feels safe.

We initiate discussion and will respond to any of your concerns. We’ll work with you to develop a behaviour guidance plan if necessary. It’ll outline strategies that we can implement in the centre, and at home to guide behaviour.
