The property comprises a total of 920sqm with inside and outside environments designed towards discovery and play.
The toys and equipment at HeadStart are chosen to help develop and improve hand-eye coordination, sharpen fine and gross motor skills, spark the imaginations of our children, educate and encourage sharing and participation.
Favourites amongst the children include two full sets of Imaginext, Mobilo and LEGO Juniors sets. We have a wide range of musical instruments, train sets, games, puzzles, and an extensive library. We encourage dress ups, painting, play doh and water play throughout the day.
While we do have digital devices available, we believe in limiting screen time for our children. We are able to offer so much through our programme and interactions with other children and our teachers, and these are much more valuable tools of learning at this young age.
We believe that the best learning takes place when young minds are well nurtured and nourished.
At HeadStart we offer a nutritious menu for our children. It includes a cooked lunch as well as morning and afternoon teas. All food is prepared on site and is centred around balanced meals focusing on 5+ vegetables and fruit a day.
We accommodate all food intolerances and food allergies. HeadStart is a nut free centre.
As part of our Transition to School programme, one day a week, all 4 year old children bring their own lunch, so they can practice eating from a lunchbox before they start school.
