At Thrive Early Learning Centres we believe early childhood years are the most vital of a persons life. Therefore, we regard this as an important time to promote growth and development in all areas of wellbeing. We encourage growth of the “whole” child as we believe the social, emotional, physical and cognitive abilities are deeply intertwined and are equally important in ensuring a child’s well-being, learning and growth.

The thrive curriculum is all your child needs to begin their journey to learning for life.
Our curriculum incorporates the 3 major areas of learning. The combination of social, academic and physical aspects of growing are what makes all children special and unique. We encourage creative and structured play in all areas of our curriculum this fosters childrens curiosity and social skills. It may look to outsiders as if the children are just having fun, but teachers and psychologists know that play is how children learn. Through play, they become mini-scientists, exploring the world around them. But they also learn social skills and teamwork, and discover what can happen when they let their imaginations run free.
Guided by the values and principles of the Early Years Learning Framework we aim to create an exceptional place where children are always “learning for life”.
The EYLF and Thrive curriculum aim to work on 5 very important outcomes:
Children learn about themselves and construct their own identity within the context of their families and communities. This includes their relationships with people, places, things and the actions and responses of others. Knowing who we are is essential in forming relationships with others.
Through our “thriving “curriculum we endeavour to create successful competent learners that have a strong sense of identity, are individually catered for and are equipped with skills that promote life long learning.
Having a positive sense of identity and experiencing respectful, responsive relationships, strengthens children’s interest and skills in being and becoming active contributors to their world.
Thrive Early Learning centres are a safe and nurturing environment where children will feel encouraged, equal and included. Through our “thriving” curriculum children will learn and develop responsible habits that will promote confident and involved learners that can contribute to their world and environment. Our centres are an exceptional place where children are always “learning for life”.
At Thrive, learning about healthy lifestyles, including nutrition, personal hygiene, physical fitness, emotions and social relationships is integral to wellbeing and self-confidence. Physical wellbeing contributes to the childrens ability to concentrate, cooperate and learn. Our Thrive Centres aim to promote healthy, happy children.
A sense of security and sound wellbeing gives children the confidence to experiment, explore and to try out new ideas, thus developing their competence and becoming active and involved participants in learning.
Our Thrive team encourages confident and involved learners by using families and community experiences to share understanding and include them in our early childhood setting. This assists children to make connections and to make sense of new experiences.
At Thrive early learning centres we use processes such as exploration, collaboration and problem solving across all aspects of our curriculum.
Communication is crucial!
From birth children communicate with others using gestures, sounds, language and assisted communication. We are all social beings who are intrinsically motivated to exchange ideas, thoughts, questions and feelings with others. At Thrive we use a range of tools and media, including music, dance and drama for children to express themselves and connect with others and extend their learning.
The team at Thrive aim to maintain a clear and open line of communication with our parents to promote healthy feedback and partnerships that will strengthen our centre community.
