We have purpose-built rooms which ensures that everybody gets the most out of their experience here at North Cowra. We have four rooms categorised by age. Our Nursery room is for 0 – 2 year olds and is a bright, open and spacious area, designed for a wide variety of activities for the children to participate in. The nursery also has a separate sleep room with soft twinkle lights in the ceiling.
We have a Toddler room for our 2 – 3 year old children to spend their time in. The Toddler area has been created so that there are numerous opportunities for imaginative play and learning.
The three year old Kindy room has been carefully planned and set out in order to offer a variety of play and learning experiences for the children to engage and explore in.
Our four year old Pre-school room provides a unique opportunity for the children to prepare themselves for “big school”. Our transition to a School Readiness program is a part of our everyday educational program. We prepare children for school in our care by promoting all areas of their growth and development and focus on them becoming confident learners.
We embrace our belief that working in partnerships with our families helps to build secure and trusted relationships and we welcome their participation. We take great pride in watching as the children learn and grow as individuals and discover the world around them.
