Nursery Room 2

Nursery 2 builds on the foundations laid in Nursery 1, with a step up in all areas to age-appropriate levels.

Children are encouraged to follow their interests and explore in a safe and secure environment.

The key point of difference in Nursery 2 is that Childcare Educators are constantly evaluating the children’s needs and interests through family, staff, and child input.

The curriculum is based on parents’ and children’s input as well as cultural and seasonal events and staff’s observations to determine the Learning Experiences available for the children to choose from.

We employ a wonderful Early Childhood Teacher as Team Leader in this room, who leads with great passion and nurtures all children’s needs and abilities enabling them to become independent.

Specifically, you and your child will love…

  • Music curriculum including songs, rhythm, dance
  • Language, maths, science, and literacy skills are embedded in everything we do
  • Relaxation and quiet time
  • Art, craft, indoor and outdoor play (with soft fall) incorporating nature and sustainability
  • Language and pre-literacy skills via story time, conversation and drawing
  • Large play area so they enjoy their solitary play without bumping into other children
  • Shared modern nappy change room and toilet facility, complete with individual lockers for each child’s supplies, and glass panels for supervision
  • Staff only kitchen area with a large fridge for bottle storage sinks for cleaning and a dishwasher
  • Specially chosen ergonomic cots for smooth pick up and lay down so sleep disturbance is minimised, with the added benefit of being at the height to minimise bending for our Childcare Educators; these cots are made of wood – yes, even indoors we’ve tried to make the environment as natural as possible! Children have the option to sleep in a cot or on a mattress depending on parents’ wishes and children’s development and needs.
  • Sterilisation of toys to minimise the spread of germs – our “mouth toys” are washed twice a day every day, and the room is cleaned by professionals every day
  • Laundry on-site for the washing of bibs, tea towels and the like so everything is clean and fresh every day
  • Information board above the lockers keeps you informed of the day’s activities and upcoming events

It’s important to note that children under 2 learn via sensory experience which is why all experiences are open-ended and supported by natural resources (e.g. blocks, sticks, cones, bark) rather than the commercialised “pop-up” flashing equipment sold in department stores. We believe it is vital to give the children the time to explore and make decisions themselves to enhance their learning and development.

Rest assured the planned experiences your child receives invites them to interact with their environment so their love of learning is nurtured.
