We no longer have a waitlist and now have availability in our Nursery 1 room at Leap Start Southern River!

In Nursery 1, (6 weeks to 15 months) we develop caring and trustworthy connections with our children and mix home routines with our unique “Accelerated Neuro Response” (ANR) Approach curriculum. This allows children to connect with their surroundings and reach developmental goals.In Nursery 1, Making Sure Your Child Feels Safe, Loved And Comfortable Is Our Priority.

Because we recognise that your child has been learning since before birth, the programmes we offer provide infants with opportunities for fine motor and sensory experiences while learning in a group setting with other children.

Some OUTSTANDING attributes about our Nursery 1 room.

1: Inside the room, we move around and change the layout and setting on a regular basis to engage our nursery children’s learning. We provide them the autonomy to choose what they want to do within their room environment.

2: Nursery Room 1 educators work hard to form strong relationships and bonds within the room. Each educator prides themselves on knowing each child their likes, and dislikes, and the best way to settle them should they become upset. Because of this and the connections our educators build our children have a strong sense of belonging in the room and safety which is considerably a very important factor in early learning education and development.

3: Not only in our Nursery 1 room but the whole of Leap Start Southern River we always put your child’s needs of the child first. Prioritizing their well-being, development, and individual requirements above all else. Understanding and respecting the unique qualities of each child with distinct needs, abilities, and interests.

4: We have the consistency of the same staff in our nursery 1 room daily, this way the children become familiar with who is in the room with them and work to establish strong long-lasting bonds between educators and children.
