Striking a balance between theoretical and practical learning helps to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of children whilst also strengthening social skills and cognitive development.
Our intimate nursery spaces provide families with the support and assurance they need, to bring their children into an early learning environment for the first time.

Our 3–5-year-old “Step into Prep” program is a government funded program, providing children with two years of Kindergarten in the lead up to Primary School. The program is designed with a collaborative approach, consulting with our schools and wider community, to ensure children are equipped with the skills they need to successfully move into their next stage of learning. As children move towards their school years, we aim to capture and develop their emerging interests to further progress their love of learning. The program adopts a wide range of teaching methods to embrace all learning styles, including intentional teaching and project work led by our qualified and experienced teachers, play based learning led by the children and extra-curricular activities and excursions. The overarching goals of our school readiness program is to equip each and every child with the tools, confidence, and autonomy of learning, to empower them to reach their full potential, as they Step into Prep.
Meet our centre manager.
Hello, my name is Soledad Andrade. I have a Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood and have worked in the Early Childhood Industry for the last 22 years.
I believe every child and family is unique, with their own need, strengths, story, and interest. Therefore, their feedback is a vital aspect of my program because it enables me to understand and advocate for diversity throughout the program.
I uphold that early childhood profoundly impacts every child’s life and learning, for which I aim to provide a safe, nurturing, positive, welcoming, and fun program where every child can thrive with confidence and excitement.
As a leader, I provide the foundation for work, learning and a community environment that values communication, competency, and trust by continuously modelling honesty, perseverance, respect, resilience, and professionalism.
A few of my interests are dancing, cooking, enjoying time with family, friends and my dog and having a good chat.
