St Nicholas Early Education
St Nicholas Early Education Aranda is the first St Nicholas Early Education to open in Australian Capital Territory. It is the first child care centre to be built in the area since 1994.
Scheduled to open in early 2020, St Nicholas Early Education Aranda will be an eight-room and 131-place early education and care centre. The new centre will be located near St Vincent’s Primary School.
St Nicholas Early Education Aranda will feature two dedicated nursery programs for 12 children aged 0 - 2 years with two cot rooms. In addition to the nursery programs, St Nicholas Aranda will feature two two-year-old programs with space for 15 children in each; two three-year-old programs; one with space for 20 children and one with space for 17 children; and two preschool programs for children aged four and five with space for 20 children in each.
Included in the delivery of our early education services at St Nicholas Early Education Aranda will be a full service food menu which will include: a breakfast bar, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. All food will be prepared on the premises by our early childhood cook.
Operating from 6.30am - 6.00pm, St Nicholas Early Education Aranda will be one of the only long day care centres operating in the area. The centre will include a specially landscaped outdoor area featuring natural play equipment to inspire and challenge children while extending their learning outdoors.
Play-based early education
St Nicholas Early Education Aranda will introduce St Nicholas Early Education’s child-led, play-based and Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum to Australian Capital Territory.
A child’s play is the foundation of their learning journey and it is how children experience, explore and examine the world around them while learning literacy, social and cognitive skills.
At St Nicholas Early Education, educators work with each child on an individual level to gain an understanding of their wants, needs, interests and strengths in order to extend their learning through play.
Transition to School Program
A standout feature of St Nicholas Early Education Aranda’s preschool program is the Transition to School Program.
The Transition to School Program familiarises children with the primary school environment and introduces them to the routines which will be a part of their day when they journey from a preschool environment into a primary school environment.
