Inspired By The Reggio Emilia Approach
The name il nido means nest in Italian and symbolises our vision to provide a safe, healthy, fun and nurturing environment where children can learn & thrive. Our early learning approach is inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy, which sees children as capable and confident learners who can express themselves in infinite ways.
Unique Learning Experiences
We recognise the multitude of ways that children learn, so our Centre is equipped with a rich variety of play spaces and resources designed to engage and develop curious minds. We foster an environment where children are encouraged to explore, discover and learn through nature play and provide a supportive, inclusive setting where programs are tailored to each child’s needs and interests.
The il nido Advantage
Quality Inclusive Care
Here at il nido, we recognise and respect cultural diversity and provide programs and services that are inclusive of all members of the community and special rights children. il nido has been recognised as a leader in Early Childhood Education by being rated and acknowledged as exceeding the National Quality Standard (NQS).
Our early learning centre is filled with passionate educators and teachers who support and guide all children to reach their potential. We invest in our team with continuous professional development and encourage our staff to pursue the highest levels of education and certification.
Convenient Opening Hours
Mon to Fri: 7 am – 6 pm
We understand how busy life is as a working/studying parent, so we offer extended opening hours and complete continuity of care. Your child can grow and develop with il nido from birth to school and we provide care before and after preschool program sessions so you can manage all of your commitments.
Fresh, Nutritious Food To Cater For All Diets
Great food and nutrition are critical for growing children, so all our food is made fresh onsite daily. We provide breakfast, cooked lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack for preschool and childcare / early learning children. Plus, we work in partnership with families to cater for individual dietary requirements and allergies (e.g. nut, dairy, egg & gluten) as well as offering halal, vegetarian and vegan options.
Onsite Support Services
To support the needs of our community, we offer an integrated range of onsite government and allied health services. These services include Child and Family Health Services (CaHFS), a Community Development Officer, a Family Practitioner, speech therapy, occupational therapy, parenting workshops, baby programs and playgroups.
Amazing Outdoor Adventure Play Spaces
il nido’s early learning philosophy has a strong focus on nature play which is why we have an expansive outdoor area with multiple adventure play spaces. All our internal and external spaces are intentionally designed to stimulate and develop curious minds whilst maximising fun and enjoyment for optimal learning.
