Welcome to Discovery Childcare-2

Discovery Childcare and Education is about putting children first.

We recognise the individuality of every child and take a holistic approach towards care and education by accommodating the unique emotional, physical and psychological needs of every child in our care.

The foundation of our advanced academic program is based on Danish Forest School philosophy, Reggio Emilia, Montessori and Steiner. It is a program that has been designed to challenge all of our students while remaining flexible enough to accommodate the needs and preferences of your child.

While we always meet the standards required by governing bodies, this is just our starting point and it is our practice to exceed many of these standards such as Educator to child ratios, indoor and outdoor space requirements, Educator qualifications as well as standards of nutrition, safety and resources.

Our Philosophy

Discovery Childcare and Education is about putting children first.

We recognise the individuality of every child and take a holistic approach towards early education and care by accommodating the unique emotional, physical and psychological needs of every child.

We see it as our privilege and responsibility to equip children with the tools and experiences they need to reach their full potential in life. Respect is a guiding value of our service and we believe in the importance of maintaining respectful relationships toward each other, animals and the environment.

Our motto is “Courage and Kindness”. We seek to imbue children with the courage to believe in themselves, to develop grit and to do what is right even when it is difficult. It is also our goal to instil kindness in children toward themselves as well as others and to teach them that this also means having the patience and making the effort to understand the views of others, even if these are not your views. We aim to promote warmth and generosity of soul.

We believe in leading by example and expect our Educators and team to demonstrate courage and kindness toward each other and the community.

Academically, we aspire to be industry leaders by providing an advanced program which draws on the teachings of the Danish Forest School, Reggio Emilia, Montessori and Steiner approaches. It is a program that promotes learning through play and has been designed to prepare children for life by challenging them while remaining flexible enough to accommodate their individual needs and preferences.

While we embrace the Government’s initiatives and regulatory guidelines including the National Quality Framework, we regard these as a starting point and it is our practice to exceed standards in our pursuit to provide the leading standard of early education in Australia.
