Healthy Beginnings (birth – 1year)

The Lifelong Learning Healthy Beginnings Curriculum emphasizes the establishment of secure attachments and positive relationships between babies and educators through the use of the Circle of Security and learning zones focused on play schemas that support babies physical and intellectual development. We know your baby’s earliest emotional, social and physical experiences will directly impact their future resilience and wellbeing, and we are here to support that journey. Our qualified educators are trained and accredited by Affinity Education Group in the Lifelong Learning Curriculum.

How Babies Learn

Babies learn best through relationships. Relationships provide babies with a secure base to explore the world and a haven to return to when babies may seek comfort and connection with our educators. Our qualified educators can ‘tune in’ to your baby's preferences and personalities. They partner closely with families to create a Circle of Security for babies to thrive.

Where Babies Learn

Our Healthy Beginnings nurseries are thoughtfully designed, with spaces for babies to explore, play, safely sleep, and enjoy their meals. Look beyond the toys, and you’ll see the careful planning of our rooms that provide specific learning zones. Our baby's Lifelong Learning Curriculum zones include the Stretch and Grow area, Cosy Corner, Completely Connected area, and Discovery zone.

What Babies Learn

During their first year, our Lifelong Learning Curriculum supports babies in developing trusting relationships with people and the confidence to explore and understand the physical environment. Without this secure foundation, learning in other areas cannot flourish. The learning experiences, based on play schemas, support those first connections and exploration, allowing emotional security, self-identity and self-confidence to emerge.
