The Best Start For Your Child

We pride ourselves on providing quality education and care for all children.

Our Lifelong Learning Curriculum is Australia’s most advanced approach to early education for children from birth to five. Our curriculum focuses on what children learn, how children learn and where children learn as; babies, toddlers and older 3-5-year-olds.

Our Lifelong Learning Curriculum draws on current research, evidence-informed practices and specific programs in each age group, such as The Circle of Security in our babies’ rooms, Abecedarian Language Priority for our Toddlers and Inquiry-Based Learning Projects for older children.
