Our Philosophy

Starfish is a community of learners where the voices of families, children and educators are respected and valued.

We aim to develop a sense of Belonging, Being and Becoming, as reflected in the Early Years Learning Framework (2009) for all our families, children and educators.

We are committed to providing opportunities of play for children to express their “hundred languages” by exploring, investigating, discovering, hypothesising, imagining, creating and making connections.

We will endeavour to create an environment that will provoke learning and allow for possibilities.

We embrace the image of the child as a strong, competent, creative and active learner.

Our Early Learning Centres

Starfish Early Learning Centres are purpose built and architecturally designed to enhance the natural play spaces available. 

Our facilities consist of 6 different rooms: 2 nurseries, 2 toddlers and 2 kindergarten rooms (3 & 4 year old funded kindergarten).

Each room is equipped with furniture that is fit for purpose, age appropriate and designed to enhance and promote a child’s learning experience. 

Our Early-Learning Curriculum

We believe that all children are unique individuals who are coming from families with different cultural backgrounds, behaviours, views and levels of developmental needs.

We strive to provide a curriculum that provides each child with multiple learning opportunities through play-based learning such as sensory experiences, construction, music and movement, art expressions, projects and many more.
