Our story

St Nicholas Early Education

Curiosity drives toddlers and children to explore and experience the world around them. It is this innate curiosity which inspires a child’s interest in developing an understanding of the world and their place within it. With the importance of curiosity in mind, St Nicholas Early Education’s child-centred, play-based and Reggio Emilia-influenced curriculum nurtures each child’s desire for discovery and expanded horizons.

St Nicholas Early Education’s commitment to children: child-centred, play-based early education

Using a child-centred, play-based and Reggio Emilia-influenced approach to early education, St Nicholas Early Education fosters a positive, nurturing and trusting relationship with each child to promote a sense of belonging to St Nicholas Early Education.

Viewing children as capable, creative and confident learners, the curriculum at St Nicholas Early Education is designed to ignite each child’s natural curiosity and inbuilt desire to learn to create a sense of being.

Drawing upon a curriculum which places each child at the centre of their own learning journey, St Nicholas Early Education’s talented team of educators create unique and customised provocations to encourage each child to follow their own passions and interests. This sets your child on the path to becoming a confident learner.

St Nicholas Early Education’s commitment to families and community: communication and shared decision-making

At St Nicholas Early Education, we understand the importance of fostering each child’s sense of place within their family and community. Through solid and ongoing communication with families, as well as having early education centres that are woven into the fabric of our local communities, St Nicholas Early Education works to build a bright future for each child.

Through daily communication and shared decision-making, we welcome you, as parents and carers, to be involved in your child’s learning journey.

St Nicholas Early Education is committed to developing and maintaining positive relationships with our local communities. Each centre also incorporates the surrounding landscape into their play-based curriculum to create a natural play environment which encourages each child’s desire for exploration and discovery.

We also promote community involvement by embarking on regular excursions to nearby community organisations, inviting visitors from neighbouring businesses and services into our centres, and by supporting local causes.
