Locations / Port Coogee

Our beautiful early learning centre is filled with natural light and designed to let the beachside breeze flow through our play spaces. Our children take part in regular excursions to local coastlands and bushlands and learn about our indigenous Australian history as they connect with the local environment.

Our specialised, bespoke furniture and equipment has been designed to cater to the developmental and sensory needs of our children and reflects the beauty and texture of our beachside landscape. Our best practice approaches to early learning and development provide children with the tools and resources to exercise their agency as innovative learners and leaders.

Within our indoor play spaces, children are supported by our experienced educators as they engage in hours of uninterrupted play. Our indoor learning environments are aesthetically beautiful areas where children build happy, lasting friendships with their peers and our educators.

Our outdoor environments include a mixture of natural and built elements with an emphasis on oceanic loose parts that are naturally found along the Port Coogee coastline. Our intentional outdoor classroom encourages children to investigate the natural world as they collect, move, redesign, organise, deconstruct and reconstruct the loose parts in meaningful play experiences.
