We are happy to bring our third Aspire centre to the City of Melton Community located in the heart of the Thornhill Park Estate. Our service is a state-of-the-art facility with beautiful indoor and outdoor environments for children to learn and grow in, including our very first piazza. Aspire Early Education Thornhill Park has 8 spacious rooms that support children through their entire learning journey catering for children aged 6 weeks to school age, from our intimate nursery hubs room through to our state of the art 3- and 4-year-old Kindergarten rooms where our Step into Prep program takes place.

The Piazza

We are so excited to have our first Piazza where our children’s meals will be served and our Aspire wellbeing program including our sustainability program, edible gardens and children’s cooking classes will take place.  This space will allow for our communities of children across the service to come together and share in the learning that occurs during these important times.  This shared time together across multiple age groups allows these relationships to flourish, as older children role model and support younger children during these routine and transition times promoting and supporting children’s independence skills.  The younger children benefit from the positive role modelling of the older children wanting to mimic and be like them, and the older children enjoy this responsibility and rise to these expectations helping to make them confident learners.

Our Programs

Our children’s programs are developed in consultation with our families, with the children’s developmental needs, goals, and interests forming the foundation of the program.  These programs are expanded and extended by our team of educators through intentional teaching moments and planned projects and experiences leading to endless opportunities of learning for the children providing them with the tools, confidence, and autonomy of their learning journey from our nursery rooms through to our Kindergarten.  One of the most important things our team aim for is to inspire a love of learning in your child helping to shape a positive future for all children through our Aspire vision for every child to grow, learn and connect.

Our 3-5 yr old “Step into Prep” program is a government funded program providing children with 2 years of Kindergarten in the lead up to Primary School. This program is designed in collaboration with our schools and community to ensure that our children are set up to succeed as they move into the next stage of their learning journey.  Our program is a combination of intentional teaching and project work led by our teachers, play based learning led by the children and extra curricular activities and excursions based on the children’s emerging interests all designed to promote a love of learning in children.  During their time in our program the children will become
