The nursery is set in the 1920’s Hundred Acre Wood and based on the original A,A. Milne classic, Winnie the Pooh. The woods are an enchanted place filled with sunshine and woodland scents, where children love to play and learn. It is a place where the finer details, the little things, are considered most important.
Staff to child ratios… begin at 1:2 for babies aged 2 months to 14 months to 1:5 for children aged 36 to 48 months.
Structured planning takes on a play-based approach… and tailored to the abilities and interests of the individual child. We have also invested highly in globally recognised phonics/reading schemes, music programs and health and fitness initiatives that are incorporated into the day to day activities.
Safety is paramount… Kanga’s Pouch adheres not only to local safety standards but Australian and British child safety and occupational health and safety guidelines. Not only are we Civil Defense approved, we have implemented additional measures with advice from British safety specialists to ensure the nursery is the safest possible environment for your child.
A focus on happy children… Social and emotional development in little one’s is crucial to ensuring happy, successful children at school. A child’s survival at school depends on their self-esteem and level of confidence. We promote all aspects of social and emotional development by encouraging positive behaviour, co-operation and sensitivity towards others. We spend a great deal of time emphasising this throughout various activities throughout the day.
