In our Ducklings room

Our dedicated baby’s room is a warm and inviting learning space for babies to grow and develop. The educational program runs a morning and afternoon program. Children are supported and encouraged to grow strong healthy bodies and a love for learning. Every child will take a unique path to their learning and development. Daily yoga classes will help to teach children breathing techniques to calm their emotions and regulate their behaviour. These are skills children will use throughout their life. Our educators are bright happy inspiring people who have been handpicked to work with babies because of their experience and specialised training in early childhood development.

Each day your baby will have many learning opportunities to engage with their educators, play pick a boo, have tummy time, have stories read to them, play with other babies, go for a walk in the local community (4 seater pram), play musical instruments, listen to music and learn a variety of rhymes and finger songs. Our beautiful outdoor gardens are a great place for young children to explore. Children enjoy feeling the texture of grass, playing in the sand pit, pushing a walker to get them from one place to another playing with dolls, trucks and wooden blocks.

Our in-house chef prepares good wholesome fresh food to fuel growing bodies. Babies need good nutrition, plenty of fresh food & water, educational stimulation, care and nurture and rest times. Daily yoga classes are a fun way to help to teach children breathing techniques to calm their emotions and regulate their behaviour.

Our beautiful outdoor gardens are a great place for young children to explore. Children enjoy feeling the texture of grass, have a play in the sand and explore the gardens. Our babies are part of our kindergarten community and they will have many opportunities to play with other children / siblings from other rooms.

Educators know that babies will grow and learn more in their first 12 months than at any other time of their life. This is a period where babies begin to make connections to the world around them and to their emotions. Children begin to communicate using gesturing, vocalizations, pointing and crying. Physical developments can include laughing out loud, crawling, sitting, standing and walking.
