At Aurora Kindergarten, our Willow Walk studio room offers a rhythmic routine and structure to each day. Each session allows for whole group discussions and explorations of concepts. Children can then direct their own learning through engaging with interactive, fun and exciting experiences that are set up around the room.
Activities and experiences are carefully thought through to meet individual children’s needs and abilities to further develop their knowledge and skills. Broad concepts are discussed during whole group session time and then realted activities facilitate exploration and inquiry to build upon the child’s base knowledge.
Our school readiness program prepares your child to transition seamlessly and successfully from kindergarten to school and lays the foundation for a lifetime of positive learning experiences.
We start mid-year before your child transitions. We’ll prepare a report that reflects on how your child might cope with the change and book an interview with you to discuss their progress and options.
Then we’ll work to enhance their emotional maturity, physical development, social and communication skills, focusing on building resilience to cope with whatever school throws at them – whether it’s in the classroom or the playground.
The Aurora Kindergarten program offers a choice of any two 7.5hr days within the long daycare hours (7am-6:30 pm) as well as any other days that you require for care. The Kindergarten program runs 9am- 5pm every day, 52 weeks a year.

To help ease the transition between kindergarten and school, Aurora host sessions where past students return to discuss with current students about what to expect at school. This is an important tool in easing any fears that kindergarten children may be feeling.
Exploration and Enquiry
We encourage children to reflect, theorise, hypothesise and try out different ideas. We interact with them in meaningful ways, knowing that this kind of meaningful interaction with adults sets them up for success in later life.

Hear what our clients have to say about us
“My daughter has never been happier! The staff at Aurora are second to none. They are always happy to take my calls, answer all of my questions and care for all the kids like they’re their own children. The curriculum for learning is amazing, it’s culturally inclusive and wholistic. I would highly recommend Aurora.”
“My son has been attending the “Seamist Studio” at Aurora since April 2018 and we have been so happy with every aspect of his care and our experience with Aurora. The staff are professional, friendly and caring and I’m always made to feel welcome to ask any questions or advice if needed. They use Kinderloop to give updates on what the children have been up to as well as their own app to keep a daily record of all your child’s daily habits such as what they’ve eaten, nappy changes and naps etc. I would definitely recommend Aurora and look forward to sending my son there again next year.”
