Cobblebank Aspire Early Education & Kindergarten
Quality Care for Your Child
We are very excited to be opening our new service in the heart of the Cobblebank community, located in the Atherstone estate, Aspire Early Education Cobblebank is the sister centre to our thriving Atherstone Centre that opened in 2019. Our Cobblebank service is a state of the art facility with beautiful indoor and outdoor environments for children to learn and grow in, we can’t wait to see the children exploring our exciting playground.
Aspire Early Education Cobblebank has 8 spacious rooms that support children through their entire learning journey catering for children aged 6 weeks to school age, from our intimate 8 place nursery room through to our state of the art Kindergarten, packed with additional learning programs to prepare your children for school. Our educators and teachers are passionate about inspiring a love of learning in your children, helping them to reach their full potential.
The Nursery – Inspiring an Early Love of Learning
Our small, intimate, nurseries provide families with the support and assurance they need bringing their children into the care environment for the first time. Our team of educators will work closely with each individual family to ensure that each child’s routine from home are followed to make that transition to care as smooth as possible. Our environments and programs are based on goals set by each family for their children, which supports infant development, ensuring from an early age that our children have a love of learning. This sets the foundation for enduring curiosity, lasting self-confidence and lifelong learning.
Expansive Outdoor Play Spaces to Explore
Our multi-aging outdoor spaces allow communities of children to come together to learn and grow. We have 2 exciting and flexible outdoor spaces; our nursery rooms share an open play space with opportunities to learn and discover, and our 2 -5 year old children sharing in the other outdoor community that is full of places to play and explore. Many children enjoy visiting their siblings, friends or family members throughout the day and these beautiful shared spaces allow these relationships to flourish. Research suggests that children of different ages playing together can benefit from learning opportunities and also increase skill development. It is an opportunity for beautiful relationships to be formed as older children role model and support younger children, while younger children see in older children leadership, helpfulness and sympathising roles. The younger children benefit from the positive models of older children, often aspiring to their levels of capability. At the same time, the older children rise to the expectations of the younger children and teacher, being very responsible and having opportunities to lend and use their expertise.
