Our rooms cater for different ages and levels of development.
When children have reached a certain age and/or level of development, as assessed by our qualified educators, and in collaboration with parents, they are assisted in making a successful and exciting transition to the next room.
With this in mind, the following age-split is provided as a rough guide only to help you navigate our room structure and developmental goals and objectives.
Birth – 18 months: Pipis Room
Our Pipis Room offers a warm inviting early learning environment for children from birth to 18 months of age. We understand this may be the first experience leaving your child with people outside your family and we invite parents and family members to spend as much time as they like in the room interacting with their child and also getting to know the staff members.
We provide a range of experiences, which helps early developmental milestones, and we also offer flexible routine, which allows us to keep as close as possible to your child’s home routine. Your child will be introduced to the joy of painting, water play, sand, play dough along with many other experiences. As your child grows we also have opportunities to climb, jump, crawl and dance. All of this is done in a safe and supervised environment.
18 months – 2.5 years: Jellyfish Room
Our Jellyfish children are 18 months to 30 months. They are at an age where they have found their feet and are beginning to explore the world around them. They are exploring their friendships and looking for new ways to do things. We provide the children with a range of activities to develop their creative side such as art and craft and sensory play activities. Fine motor and gross motor play is encouraged through activities such as dancing and role play while ensuring that the children are nurtured in a safe and happy environment as they grow and discover the world.
2.5 – 3.5 years: Starfish Room
The Starfish Room children are aged between 2.5 years to 3.5 years. Our room offers a safe environment and accommodates for all children in need. Our children are at the age where independence plays a big part. The children are learning to put words into sentences, or even speaking. Our room encourages a lot of curiosity, enthusiasm, cooperation, confidence, creativity and imagination. Our room enjoys using their creative skills whether it is painting, drawing, pasting or play dough. Our room enjoys frequently playing outdoors which promotes their large muscle development to run, jump, dig and dance.
