Our Educators

At Nature’s Kids Early Learning, we believe that all children are capable of extraordinary things and should be active participants in creating their own environment.

Our educators aim to provide a holistic curriculum that encourages all children to be successful learners, feel a sense of belonging in the community, and ultimately become lifelong learners.

We recognise the value of the early years and believe that children are empowered when they are immersed in their learning as they explore, investigate and interact within their environment and reflect on previous experiences.

“Our goal is to establish a nurturing atmosphere that fosters comfort, respect and value for all children, families, educators, and community members. We have a natural and ample outdoor play space designed to facilitate risky play where shoes are optional and getting dirty is compulsory. 

We are committed to ensuring that all children in our care are provided with a safe environment where they have the opportunity to play, develop, learn and participate. 

Our philosophy revolves around simple childcare focused on children’s perspectives. We balance care, education, and play while encouraging the discovery of innate ‘Wildhood’. 

We respect every family’s unique needs, values, and relationship with their child, while providing excellent education and care. We also aim to build strong relationships with the community.”

“Children’s brains develop connections faster in the first five years than at any other time in their lives. The experiences within this time set the foundation for lifelong learning and well-being.

Here at Nature’s Kids Early Learning, we believe that through warm, responsive relationships and positive experiences, children learn about themselves, their world and build resilience. We recognise that each child is a unique and capable individual who has their own interests, talents, skills and ideas to nurture and develop.

Our educational programs provide positive, inclusive and rich play-based learning experiences tailored to individual interests and development. These are facilitated within our five spacious rooms and vast natural outdoor playscapes, which include gardening, worm farms, composting and barnyard animals. 

Practising sustainability empowers children to construct knowledge, explore values and develop an appreciation of the environment and its relationship to their world.”
