The Aurora Difference
Our high standards help children adapt to the rhythm and flow of daily life at Aurora. We employ qualified staff to give your child the attention they need, supporting them to participate in play and learning. Aurora children play in a safe and well-maintained environment, both inside and outdoors.
The Environment: A combination of Art and Education
The Aurora Doncaster service, is a purpose built centre based on the 5 elements of nature. The building is architecturally designed to support children to feel safe yet challenged while learning in the space. This centre wholly supports our vision to create a space for children, families, staff and friends to connect, care and create with each other on a daily basis.
Highly Qualified Pedagogues
Aurora aims to have teachers that are highly qualified and experienced such as Masters and Bachelors in all rooms of the service. All educators at Aurora are well versed in early childhood education and development and are trained through Aurora, to always provide a safe, supportive learning environment for your child
Experiencing nature is core to the Aurora philosophy. We believe in a mix of indoor/outdoor learning delivers a balanced educational experience for children of all ages. Your child will have access to both indoor and outdoor spaces throughout the day, dependent on the weather. (We just ask you to make sure they are prepared for all weather conditions!)
We are focused on nutrition and healthy eating at Aurora. The Australis Kitchen is located in the centre of the building, being the most important room in the Centre! Expert nutritionists advise us on our menus which is filled with a variety of tastes and flavours from around the globe.Our in-house chef prepares fresh, delicious food in the Aurora kitchen every day and we will encourage your child to try all meals unless advised otherwise (eg allergies or dietary restrictions). Water is served with every meal and is accessible at all times throughout the day.
The Cafe element to the Doncaster service is for families and friends of Aurora to have a safe and friendly meeting space throughout the day. The Cafe will support families with their nutritional needs in the morning, with healthy take-away meals available and good quality coffee to grab in the mornings before work. Australis Cafe is used as a community hub and will hold group training sessions for the community on topics such as parenting help, resume support for women getting back into the workforce and anything that our community asks for!
Specialist Sessions are provided on a daily basis to enhance the Aurora Program. These are additional educational opportunities for children in areas such as sports, language, Fine Art,Yoga and Music. We believe that for such specific learning to be effective, it must be taught by a passionate teacher in that industry to give your child the very best exposure and learning as possible.
The Aurora App is your virtual real-time connection with the centre and your child. We record data such as food and fluid intake, sleep, nappy changes and other important daily information. Your child’s learning documentation is recorded through the App such as photos and videos throughout the day of your child learning and playing, evaluations of your child’s experiences and educational goals for the future.. You won’t miss a thing!

A typical day for your child
We feel it is important to have routines, rhythm and predictability to each day as this encourages a sense of safety and security among young children. The day is carefully scheduled for quiet times, for group times (including meals) and for lengthy periods of uninterrupted play.
