A day in the life of our nursery

6:30 - 7:00am

Continental Breakfast

Early risers excitedly begin their day at Green Leaves Early Learning with a communal, nutritious continental breakfast.

7:00-8:00

Warm Welcome

Each baby is greeted responsively with presence and warmth. This is also an opportunity for you to discuss your baby’s individual needs for the day.

Engagement with their peers and with the nursery room curriculum environment assists your baby to settle into the day with a sense of security and confidence.

7:00am- 9:00am

Parent Lounge

Families can take the time to relax and enjoy a barista made coffee and baked treat and ease into their day in our beautifully designed lounge.

Throughout the year, families are also invited to attend specialist and community information sessions.

9:00-9:30

Co-Curricular Activities

Our education and care programs are inclusive of all activities including visiting shows. We do this because we are committed to ensuring that no child misses out.

Our babies have so much fun doing their music and movement classes and get very excited when the travelling zoo comes to visit!

9:30-10:00am

Morning Tea

Your educator helps to develop your babies nutritional palette by using texture, numeracy and literacy to introduce a variety of foods.

For morning tea, freshly baked baby banana muffins with berry smoothies are a treat.

10:00am-11:00am

Expressive Arts

Through music, songs, painting and storytelling, expressive arts provides a process for babies to explore their feelings, discover what they need, and express their true selves.

 

11:30am-12:00pm

Nursery Rest Time

Our nurseries are a magical sleeping haven for our babies. Our tranquil music and beautiful twinkling night sky create the perfect ambience for quality rest.

 

Nursery Lunch Time

During lunch, babies develop their social awareness as they are encouraged to use their verbal and non-verbal skills to engage with other babies.

Enticing tiny taste buds, our chef’s pureed chicken mince in creamy potato and sweet pea mash is a nutritional favourite.

2:00-2:30

Cognitive and Phsyical Development

Cleverly positioned sensory learning stations draw babies toward them, promoting gross and fine motor skill development.

Overcoming the challenge of getting to the station stimulates their cognitive development and inspires a love of learning.

2:30-3:00

Afternoon Tea

Progressive meal times ensure your baby receives quality care moments that are meaningful and create strong bonds and connections with their peers and educators.

For afternoon tea our babies enjoy pear and vanilla bean rice pudding.

3:00-4:00

Environmental Sustainability

Outdoor nature play helps babies form an understanding of what their natural world is. We encourage babies to explore natures sensory opportunities smelling flowers and herbs, feeling the warm sun on their face and playing in the dirt.

4:30 - 6:30

Farewell

As babies exercise their social awareness during creative free play, we begin to farewell until tomorrow. Building upon their emotional awareness, each baby leaves the centre feeling valued and eager to return the next day.

A late evening snack is provided to stretch babies through to dinner time.
