To ensure that your child receives care specifically designed to meet their needs, we have partitioned Creators into two main areas. Each classroom is designed specifically to cater to the developmental requirements of each age-group. Our Nursery classroom takes special care of your infant and provides exciting stimulation for your toddler, while our Kindergarten classroom encourages your child to extend their development and learning.
We also encourage interaction between all ages, from our infants through to our pre-school children, to encourage healthy relationships and to foster social interaction.
6 months old – 2 years
2 years – 3 years
3 years – 5 years
Creators uses these ages as a guide only, and believes strongly that your child should be wherever their development and social interaction requires them to be.
Creators will provide morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. Any allergies will be catered for.
A newborn's brain is only about one-quarter the size of an adult's. It grows to about 80 percent of adult size by three years of age and 90 percent by age five. After birth, brain growth depends critically on the quality of a child's nutrition.
Creators provides all food and meals for your child while they are in our care. These meals are designed specifically to nurture your child’s growth and development and include food to stimulate brain development.Any allergies will be catered for if possible.
Creators offers full care for you child and their needs, which includes providing all nappies and wipes.
Free-play is greatly encouraged at Creators, as children learn through their exploration and discovery during play. We make sure that plenty of time is allocated for children to learn and play, as well as establishing a consistent routine in terms of meals and sleep-times. Please read our example of a typical day at Creators. We also encourage a more relaxed schedule for infants and toddlers in our care whose individual routines require flexibility.
