Across all studios

We believe a mix of indoor/outdoor learning delivers a balanced educational experience and encourages children to develop greater agency within their own space. Your child has access to both indoor and outdoor spaces throughout the day, dependent on the weather.
We’re focused on nutrition and healthy eating at Aurora. Expert nutritionists advise us on our menus, which include multicultural dishes. Our in-house cook prepares fresh, delicious food in the Aurora Kitchen every day and we’ll encourage your child to try all meals unless you advise us otherwise (e.g. for allergies or dietary restrictions). Water is served with every meal and milk is provided at morning tea.
We know a full menu of play and learning can be tiring! Your child has access to a cot or mattress in our supervised sleep area or, if they only need a rest, they can join groups participating in quieter activities in our supervised quiet area. They’re welcome to bring a special comfort toy should they need it to nod off.
We supply disposable nappies during the day and change your child at regular intervals or when they need it.
We can help you with toilet training if you require it. We encourage and supervise your child to use the bathroom when necessary and teach them good hygiene practices throughout the day.

MoonGlade studio – Pre-kinder for children aged 3- to 4 years

At this Aurora Early Learning Center, we offer a comprehensive program in our Moonglade studio. In our pre-kindergarten program there is a strong focus on social, physical and emotional development. Our educators encourage curiosity and eagerness to learn through creative learning methods such as art, music and ‘hands on’ experiences with a focus in the second half of the year on skill building in readiness for kindergarten the following year.

As well as providing a predictable and fluid routine to each day (to ensure the children feel safe and secure in the learning environment), the educators ensure that children’s needs and interests are reflected in targeted and negotiated activities and experiences set up around the room.

Interesting and engaging resources and materials help facilitate and encourage children to engage in play, which is how they learn best. Many opportunities arise throughout each day where the group comes together to share understandings and ask questions as well as share information.

We run a mentoring program between our pre-kindergarten room and kindergarten room. Every child in Moonglade studio is paired with someone in Willow Walk kindergarten who can mentor and guide them through social play and planned activities set up in the kindergarten for them to enjoy. Running on a two week cycle, all children From Moonglade studio receive an opportunity to enter the kindergarten room to spend time with their buddy as well as gain an insight into how the kindergarten room is run. We have seen many strong bonds created through the running of this program which also encourages our Moonglade children to be capable and confident learners when entering the kindergarten environment the following year.
