Our Grafton child care and early education centre is large. However, it has been designed to create an intimate homelike feel to encourage children to feel comfortable in their learning environment.

Our outdoor playscape encourages interaction and growth through different experiences. All children are given the opportunity to help out in the centre’s vegetable & herb garden. They helping with planting, watering and harvesting the produce. The produce is then used in our daily meals. Nutritious homemade meals are prepared on the premises on a daily basis with specific food requirements catered for.

We strongly believe in and value the benefits of play-based learning, and have adopted the Early Years Learning Framework at our childcare centre. We also value the interaction of families with their children, and support families in their role as the child’s first teachers.

Our Grafton early learning centre proudly offers a preschool program to ensure your child is supported for their transition to school every step of the way. With a focus on language, literacy, numeracy, social skills and more, your child will become ready for school.

Nurturing our children and helping them to grow and learn during their time with us is what we really love doing and is why our Grafton child care centre is such a happy place.

Jade Lawrence

I started working in early learning in 1994. I joined the team at Arthur Street Children’s Centre in 2021. I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services. I bring decades of experience with me with a focus on helping and guiding children with additional needs.

Many people influence a child’s learning and development. Early education and care encourage holistic development and build the foundation for enthusiasm for learning. In a dedicated early childhood education setting like ours, we have trained professionals who build on the skills and areas for development with the child.

Our team is passionate about creating a centre that is a home away from home for families and children, where our team celebrates the diversity of all cultures. Our team also values the importance of strong partnerships in meeting the individual child’s needs and respecting each family as unique. A culture of continuous improvement is evident within our team of educators through a commitment to professional development, reflection and implementation of contemporary learning and practices.

I like to get to know all of my families. Active listening and open communication are a big key, and I find that they help create bonds within the families and community.

Frequently Asked Questions

Nurture One’s Family Support team will add your child’s name to our waitlist if one of our centres is currently full in your child’s age group. We will then contact you as soon as a place becomes available.

We also do monthly check-ins to review the availability, and you will receive a text message confirming if you’re still happy to remain on the waitlist each month. If you would like to get an update at any point, you’re welcome to reach out on our Web Chat or give us a call.

Our Family Support team can also help you find more G8 early learning centres near you, with the same offerings at the Nurture One centre you are interested in that have immediate availability.

It’s common for a child to experience separation anxiety when they first start child care. When you’re getting ready to start child care, you can help your child overcome anxieties by visiting the child care centre together for a Stay and Play session, and easing into new routines at home.

Nurture One uses Xplor Home as our family communication app. It is the best and easiest way to keep track of your child’s day. After you enrol your child with the centre, you can utilise Xplor Home to book child care days, manage your account, receive the photographs that capture your child’s learning, learn about your child’s progress, as well as keep up-to-date with upcoming centre events and important information.

If your child shows signs of an infectious illness when they arrive at the centre or becomes sick during the day, you may be notified that you need to make alternative arrangements or pick up your child from the centre, and keep them home until they are no longer infectious. While we understand that this can be inconvenient, Nurture One is committed to maintaining a healthy environment and reducing the risk of infection for all children.

Under the Child Care Subsidy (CCS), families are allowed 42 absence days per child, per financial year. These can be taken for any reason, including public holidays and when children are sick, without the need for families to provide documentation.
