Mount Gravatt Child Care Age Groups
Mount Gravatt Active Kids Early Learning Centre provides quality childcare for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years, catering for babies, toddlers, kindy and pre-school children.
Nursery (6 weeks – 2 yrs) Class size: 8 children with two Educators.
Our Babies room is always very busy. Babies are busy little people and we love them very much! But they are all developing at different stages so we believe it is very important to ensure they have the opportunity to learn and grow within their own individual routines. Our routine reminders help all staff to understand the children’s individual needs and our cosy cot room allows for the Babies to drift off in a quiet and calm environment whilst educational and play experiences continue within the room. Our Nursery Educators have their hands, arms and laps full of beautiful bouncing babies and they wouldn’t have it any other way!
Toddler Room (15mths – 2yrs) Class size: 10 children with two Educators.
We all know Toddlers are full of beans and like to stay active! We have a great Toddler room/play space up here at Mount Gravatt East! Our Toddlers now have the best of both worlds with a room filled with exciting educational toys and our great new shady patio that was built late last year. Now when the Toddlers have used up all of their brain power thinking and creating indoors, we can run outside and let off some steam before settling in for rest time. The Toddler room Educators love to explore cultural experiences from around the world, they teach us to dance and sing and also share with us music, food, stories and traditions from their different cultures. It is in the Toddlers room that children begin to learn important life lessons such as following instructions, using manners and forming relationships.
Jnr. Kindy (2.5yrs – 3yrs) Class size 16 children with two Educators.
The Jnr Kindy children love to help their Teachers make up new songs while playing along on musical instruments. Our latest chart topping single is ‘Colours in my head’ and helps us to recognise and memorize colours. Sometimes the whole centre gets together for a sing along. Jnr Kindy children will be given the opportunity to learn in a more structured environment which will help them to prepare for Preschool and the Kindergarten Program.
Preschool (3yrs – 5yrs) Class size 22 Children with two Educators.
Our Preschool room is a great place to learn! We have a great range of activities and experiences in this room that will encourage children to learn all of those important life skills that are going to help them as they transition to school next year! Our centre provides a government approved Kindergarten Program within the Preschool room and we are lucky enough to have a Bachelor Qualified Teacher on board to provide our Government Approved Kindergarten Program 5 days a week! And a wonderful Teacher Aid to help our Teacher along the way. The Kindergarten program is designed to get children ‘school ready’ and focuses on language, literacy, motor and cognitive skills within a play based setting which encourages social interactions that will be imperative to their ongoing education. We want the children to have fun and make friends while they learn to take their schooling seriously.
