Our centre provide the care for little ones from 8 weeks to 6 years of age. These age groups are divided into three groups: Nursery, Toddlers and Kindergarten.
Our Southern River child care centre is a spacious facility which has large play spaces which allow children to move freely. Our programmes incorporate plenty of physical activity and the environment is structured to facilitate this in a fun and playful manner.
Our daily routines are structured to facilitate learning in a creative and innovative environment, whilst allowing plenty of freedom for free choice in play. Quiet play areas are also created which allow children to find different types of play and follow their own interests.
Structured learning is designed to be delivered in an experiential manner so the children are highly involved and become excited about their educational development. Older children work toward becoming school ready.
Warooga Babies care for children 8 weeks to two years of age.
A nurturing environment is essential at this early stage to assist in emotional, social and intellectual development.
Carers work closely with families to ensure that home routines are followed as closely as possible, including sleep times.
Toddlers 2 to 3 years are cared for by our Early Learning programme educators. We believe each child is a capable learner, and so we guide their developmental journey through to toddlerhood with play based activities.
Social, emotional and intellectual development are the key focus in our Early Learning programme as well as life skills and independent learning to help build confidence, independence and self-esteem.
Our Kindy programme is run by a team of qualified educators and is tailored to provide an environment for your child to progress at their own pace to become ‘school ready’.
Our daily routines assist children to transition through new experiences and develop the skills needed to adapt to the school environment stress free. Literacy, maths and problem solving are some of the main topics our Kindy Programme helps to develop.
As well as this, concentration on creativity, fine and gross motor skills and developing independence are core focuses for our team
