Wattle Babies

6 weeks to 2 years

In the Wattle Babies room, it is a warm, safe and nurturing place making the environment feel home like. Educators support each child’s individual routine and are responsive to their needs. Stimulation, cuddles and nurturing are paramount throughout the day. Educators build strong, secure and trusting relationships with babies and families whilst providing an individualised curriculum to foster confident and involved learners.

Desert Peas

18 months to 2.5 years

In the Desert Pea room there is a huge focus on forming strong, nurturing relationships with the children. The program implemented prioritises the children’s interest and developmental needs. Our day follows a routine that the children are familiar with thus creating a safe and secure environment for children.

Lilly Pillies

2-3 years

In the Lilly Pilly room children are nurtured to foster the confidence to form relationships and a sense of self. Educators balance their emerging independence, building on their self-help skills, such as toilet training, dressing and undressing themselves, engaging in meal times and beginning to look after their belongings. There is a focus on exploratory play which is essential at this age to successful development. Educators aim to provide a stimulating, challenging and safe environment.

Gum Trees

3-4 years

Gum Trees is the first step into the preschool domain. Here, educators encourage and support the children to develop a sense of belonging, alongside fostering their individual self-help skills. Educators nurture their confidence, resilience and independence to grow and be ready for the Waratah room.

As children learn to use their sense of agency, Gum Tree educators actively encourage and support each child individually, ensuring they learn to develop and recognise their own set of unique life skills and the relevance of self expression and self regulation.


4-5 years

In the Waratah preschool room, educators get to know individual children’s interests, strengths, needs and challenges. Using this information, educators plan play-based experiences, and learning opportunities that suit not only their interests, but also their diverse learning styles.

Educators plan for a balance between spontaneous play, and intentional teaching that occur in small and large collaborative groups. Educators have a strong focus on the areas of personal, social, and emotional development, as these are the foundation for all other learning areas. The skilled preschool educators prepare the children for their transition to school through intentionally planned and specifically designed activities and experiences.

Through developmentally appropriate challenges the children have daily opportunities to play and form positive relationships with other children and adults. Additionally, the children develop awareness of the rules and behavioural expectations that we all need to help us look after ourselves, others, and our environment. The children can expect to have their individual ways of doing things respected, and in turn, learn to respect other individual learning styles.
