The Place

  • Natural Fun Learning

    Come and see our wonderland, full of fun and excitement, a place to nurture, learn, care, explore and grow

    We collaborated with the community and sourced global ideas and have utilised the traditional back yard with plenty of space and blended it with flora, marri logs, river rocks and sand, large trees, and sails providing protection from the sun and rain, creating a place to explore, wonder, enjoy and be excited whilst learning.

      In the classroom we allow children to explore their flexible, changing, but familiar surroundings whilst they learn and discover themselves. The spaces provide for the investigation of the senses, imagination, socialisation, creativity and learning.

      The school uses Montessori and Reggio Emilia concepts along with the great depth of knowledge from our teachers to build our educational program practice.

      The Montessori Curriculum offers children five key areas of study: Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language, and Culture. Each learning area is made up of a set of Montessori materials that each teach one key knowledge area or skill.

      Regio Emelia Approach “Education is a right of all children, and as such is a responsibility of the community. Education is an opportunity for the growth and freedom of the individual and the group; it is a resource for gaining knowledge and for learning to live together; it is a meeting place where freedom, democracy, and unity are practiced and where the value of peace is promoted.
