We’re experts at knowing how kids develop and grow, and we nurture them through these vital and precious early stages of their lives.

Our Lifelong Learning Curriculum
Our Lifelong Learning Curriculum is Australia’s most progressive approach to early education for children from birth to age five. It is based on the belief that learning and development occurs most successfully when supported by nurturing and engaged educators, in partnership with families and communities. Our educators and teachers are trained and accredited in the Lifelong Learning Curriculum by Affinity Education Group, Australia’s leading provider of early education and care. This curriculum draws on the best models of early education, contemporary research and evidence informed practices such as Circle of Security, Abecedarian, and Project Based learning. It aligns to Australia’s Early Years Learning Framework and offers a rich combination of play-based and intentional teaching experiences appropriate to each age group. Our Lifelong Learning Curriculum is based on what children learn, where they learn and how they learn.

Big Thinkers STEM Program
Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) has always played a vital role in the development of our Lifelong Learning Curriculum for children in our preschool rooms (3-5 years*).
The Lifelong Learning Curriculum - Big Thinkers STEM program is aligned to the Early Years Learning Framework, ensuring:
Your child has a strong sense of identity - Through creating a safe secure and supported learning experience, your child will develop their emerging autonomy, inter-dependence, resilience, and sense of agency; through this, developing on their self-confidence with encouraging interaction with care, empathy and respect.
