As a local and family owned early learning provider, we know first hand what our community needs and are dedicated to providing the highest quality, personalised childcare and education.
Here at School House we want to change the perception of what “daycare” should be and to far exceed the expectations of parents. We believe that your child deserves the best care and attention and we want their earliest memories to be filled with happy and enriching experiences!
Children are provided with breakfast, mid-morning snack, Lunch, afternoon tea and a late fruit snack. Milk is offered to the children at mealtimes and Water is always available and encouraged.
All meals follow a 4 week meal planner that are prepared using seasonal produce that are locally sourced when possible. We promote healthy eating by involving the children in the preparation of snacks and regular cooking activities. Older children are encouraged to serve their own food at meal times, both inspiring children to develop likes and dislikes and personal preferences all the while being conscious of the needs of their peers.
Our mission is to create an exceptional experience for young children and their families. We believe that children thrive in a caring and enriching environment that supports them in feeling comfortable, confident, and safe. We also believe that the basic building blocks of learning are play, curiosity, creativity, questioning, and imagination, and we believe that schools which embrace this theory of learning have the best influence on children’s personal, social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.
School House embraces childhood as a magical time that is best lived in an environment that is rich with possibilities, which is built on a strong foundation of relationships. The nursery is designed to feel like a home away from home for children and their families. We believe nursery should be a place where parents feel confident that their children are loved and respected.
School House nurtures the child physically, socially and intellectually by providing high-quality and nutritious meals, experiences in the outdoors, individualized experiences, small group interactions, and an intriguing, interesting, well-organized, clean, aesthetically-pleasing environment in which to explore and learn.
The nursery recognises the role that families play in creating deep and meaningful experiences for children. With this in mind, School House is always open to the unique perspective and points of view of parents and other important caregivers in the lives of the children.
