Our Centres

128 Archers Road

 We have a 2 level centre which has an infant unit , toddler and pre-school area.

Our infant unit caters for children 3 months to 2 years old. As stated in our philosophy, we endeavour that our little ones have opportunity to build trust, ensuring that they have time for uninterrupted play and that they have the freedom to explore. We are licensed for 13 under two's and have 3 teachers assigned to this area. Babies are transitioned into the unit over a two week period before starting full time at the centre, at no charge. This time is important for our families, teachers and little ones to get to know one another in an unhurried fashion. We follow each child's routine as to what they do at home.There is also a separate outside area for the little ones to explore with slides, outside equipment and a sandpit. Each day we fill in a log in which you will find information as to what your child has eaten ,how they have slept and what little discoveries they have made.

Our over two area is licensed for 25 children and have 3 teachers. The older children's creative endeavours are valued and the natural environment plays a significant role in fostering children's exploration and learning. We have a large outside area with a huge slide and double sandpit.

Our curriculum is centred around play and the children choose areas that interest them. Our teachers support this interest by noticing, recognising and responding to the learning that is taking place. This is done through discussions with the children and this interest is then extended upon.
