As soon as you step foot into our St Albans childcare Centre, you’ll be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to discover and learn. Our spacious outdoor environments feature sandpits, gardens, cubby houses and play equipment to engage all the senses.
We ensure children are provided time and space for uninterrupted play as they explore the outdoors to test their limits and develop strength, balance, and self-confidence. Being outside supports children’s overall health and wellbeing.
Our indoor spaces invite exploration with quality resources and learning experiences. Children wonder, create, and test out their ideas as they play with a range of materials in purposeful play spaces. Our team of experienced educators plan play-based learning experiences around children’s interests and learning goals. Literacy and numeracy concepts are embedded in play-based learning, as children engage as architects, storytellers, scientists, artists, and designers.
There will be no need to worry about preparing lunch or snacks. Healthy, freshly made meals are prepared daily by our in-house cook, catering for all dietary requirements. Shared mealtimes between children and educators strengthen relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices.
