Give your child the best gift in life

The Aurora Story

At Aurora Early Education, we understand the dreams every parent has for their child. All parents and carers want their children to live joyful and fulfilled lives, to learn, to grow and have the resilience to overcome the obstacles of life.

At Aurora, we share these very same dreams and hopes for every child we have the privilege to educate. Our Early Education centres have grown from these dreams, bringing together the very best in education, training and methodology.

We want to give our students life-long skills during these early years where children develop the most. We harbour creativity and thoughtfulness and encourage self-esteem and a love of nature.

These are the types of gifts that can never be taken away and that your child will take with them onwards into the journey of life.


Our Philosophy

We believe learning is most effective when delivered in a caring, nurturing environment that supports children through play and imagination to develop an understanding of their world.

A loving atmosphere and learning through play, helps children establish their own strong identity, making healthier connections with the world around them. Through shared experiences, they gain a sense of belonging and begin to develop empathy for all living beings as well as their surrounds.


Our Curriculum

We align our teaching methods and curriculum with both modern and traditional theorists such as Montessori, Reggio Emilia, Kathy Walker, and a multi-age learning approach. All methods are underpinned by a deep understanding of child development with an emphasis on ‘hands-on’ learning and children taking the lead in what interests them.


Our Pedagogues

At Aurora, we only work with the best. All our teachers are well versed in early childhood education best practice and share our commitment to nurturing your child in a safe, supportive learning environment. Their dedication is what makes Aurora special.

We emphasise ongoing training and professional development so your child gets the very best experience at Aurora.


Mindfulness is about focusing our attention on the present and ‘tuning in’ to the present moment this skill helps children to be “life ready” and be prepared for any situation life presents.


Our Community

A sense of community is a significant value we like to instil in our early learners. We also want to create a sense of community in our centres, ensuring we have deep connections with our parents. We have an Advisory Board governed by parents and grandparents alike, a Children’s Advisory Board and our community is instrumental in the structure of our centres. We actively incorporate community focused activities and visits in our programming.
