Our curriculum focuses on the development of children’s independence, creativity, responsibility, social skills and emotional intelligence. We see every child as a unique learner and our emergent, play-based curriculum is tailored to the individual needs of every child.

Our curriculum incorporates both the nationally accredited Early Learning Years Framework and STEAM: an integrated approach that utilises science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics to guide education; equipping children with the tools they need for the future.

Children are encouraged to make choices that influence their world, engage in meaningful individual and group experiences, explore, develop friendships and express their ideas in a safe, inclusive and nurturing environment.

Our programs are delivered in partnership with our educators, family and community, and are receptive to each child’s ideas, interests, strengths and abilities.
