We are a not-for-profit service based in Menora, offering education and care for children aged 6 weeks up to school age.

We are a community of educators committed to the care and development of young children, helping them to flourish and bloom as they reach their true potential and take their place in the world as kind and compassionate global citizens.

Our goal is to create a place where every child feels valued, loved and inspired.

We consciously design and create the curriculum including indoor and outdoor environments to support and promote each child’s cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development.

We support our curriculum with Hebrew language opportunities, dedicated yoga instruction, drama circles and a school readiness program across our 3 and 4 year old Kindy Rooms.

A delicious menu, created by Nutrition Australia, provides a diverse mix of meals throughout the week and sees that all recommended required daily intakes for dairy, protein, fruit, vegetables and grains are met.

Our Rooms

Nursery

For our youngest, 6 weeks to 15 months

We strive to create a positive social and nurturing setting to allow your child to develop their sense of belonging. We  maintain smaller than recommended adult to child ratios, which enables the educators to spend quality time with the children and allows small grouping. This ensures that our experienced educators build a meaningful relationship and establish a sense of security for the child and their families.

Explorers

For our older babies, 14 months to 20 months

Our children are curious little humans, exploring and learning more about the world around them while with us. Our focus is on creating rituals from our routines and allowing children the time, as well as the physical space, to fully engage in their learning. Large blocks of time are dedicated to our play and enquiry based learning. It is during this time that children will delve deeply into their interests, develop and master skills.

Adventurers

For our toddlers, 18 months to 2.5 years 

Playing helps our Adventurers further develop motor skills, learn important concepts like colours and numbers, and sharpen skills like problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, and more. Our role as educators is to provide opportunities to engage in a multitude of different experiences. Our Educators are always available for support and guidance, enabling our Adventures to master their developmental milestones.

Our Kindy Programs

3 Year old Kindy 

Minimum age of 2.5 years to transition to this room

Within our 3 Year Old Kindy Room, we see an increase in attention spans, greater ability to concentrate and a focus on developing the foundations for creative and critical thinking. We adopt more intentional teaching strategies and create opportunities for the introduction of guided numeracy and literacy learning. We seek to provide all children with the opportunity and time to develop their emotional intelligence and love of learning.

Through working together, we have built a positive learning environment, where children feel empowered and confident to discover their identity and to build a sense of agency.

4 Year old Kindy 

For the Year they turn 4

Our 4 year old Kindy marks an important milestone in a young child’s journey as a life-long learner. They think of themselves suddenly as one of the ‘big kids’ and get to step into an environment rich in challenge and opportunities to step out of their comfort zone. They are empowered with a new level of independence, with the added responsibilities of being the oldest and the biggest in the centre.

Educational research supports (beyond a doubt) the value of providing open ended learning opportunities that encourage children to test and explore their environment in a ‘hands on way’ that focuses on the ‘journey of discovery’ rather than an end product.
