Created just for young learners
The Early Learning Village, which is home to our Infant Care, Early Years and Prep students has been thoughtfully designed with young learners in mind, to provide an environment that truly supports each child’s learning journey.
Each of our Reggio Emilia-inspired classrooms has its own outdoor playground, complete with sandpits and water or creativity project tables, and sensory play equipment.
Playgrounds in the sky, these spaces are flooded with natural light and are accessible through a child-sized door, allowing each child’s learning to be guided by their imaginations.
Classrooms are clustered together in small groups, creating communities within the larger school community. Each cluster has a dedicated teaching kitchen and mini-library and resource centre, with open spaces for children to collaborate and play flowing in-between.
In the youngest years, the classroom clusters includes nappy changing and sensory rooms, while each classrooms has its own sleeping area.
Named after Australian animals, each classroom-cluster creates a home-from-home environment that is light and airy, taking cues from the natural environment around us.
Our classrooms feature their own outdoor playgrounds, with sandpits, water play or activity tables and sensory play equipment
Our Child-Sized Campus
To engage and delight
Everything that our students experience, touch, play and learn with has been specifically created with them in mind.
At The Early Learning Village, students enjoy a Library and Inquiry Centre, a dance studio, large Smart Steps movement room, and other three other multi-functional classrooms - all designed to compliment our programs and support the development of young learners. These are further supported by a large multi-purpose gym - The Hive, fitted with equipment especially for young, busy people.
Outside of their own classroom playgrounds, children can explore 1500m2 of covered play space that has been designed to enhance play and encourage imagination across 3 different floors. These spaces feature a range of sensory play equipment, water play, bike tracks and sandpits.
At the heart of The Early Learning Village, our fully-covered 22m swimming pool is designed for the enjoyment and teaching of young children. Featuring two depths, the lowest for little waders and parent/bay instruction and the highest suitable for Learn to Swim for up to 6 years of age. A UV protective roof keeps children under cover, while our natural water filtration system reduced the need for hard chemical use.
Well-being is supported by a Medical Centre, and parents can meet and create new friendships in our Parent Café.
