At Thrive Early Learning Centres we believe early childhood years are the most vital in a person’s life. We offer a secure and safe environment where curiosity is encouraged, ideas are explored, and discovery is celebrated. We set the stage for your little one to achieve their best. At Thrive we have created a sensory-rich learning environment for your child that will encourage your child’s sense of discovery, build confidence, support self-expression and an excitement to learn. Every child is unique, so we work with you to tailor every part of your child’s experience from their learning style to dietary requirements.
Our fees cover the Thrive Learning Curriculum, healthy food program, nappies and wipes. We invite you to take a no-obligation free tour of your nearest Thrive Early Learning Centre.
At THRIVE we place great value on culture, whether it be a family’s cultural background, their family traditions and practices or languages spoken. It is important that we discover “who” each family is and what they value. We also value the community we are located in. It is important for our children, families and educators to feel connected to the service, that their culture is reflected in our environment and experiences, that they belong.
We achieve this through, but not limited to;
Collecting information from families during orientation and throughout their time at THRIVE
We communicate with all educators about what they value and how we can embed their culture into the service.
We review our menus to ensure they reflect the cultures within the service.
We invite all educators and families to participate and contribute to cultural celebrations.
We ensure our resources such as books, dolls, displays, puzzles, music, dress-ups, etc. reflect our community’s cultures.
Here at Thrive we are committed to providing exceptional quality in Early Education and have partnered with industry leading programs to support our Thrive Learning Curriculum to give your child the best possible start in life.
At Thrive we believe in the importance of children developing relationships within their local communities.
Which is why we;
Munch & Move is fun play-based NSW Health initiative that supports the healthy development of children birth to 5 years by promoting physical activity, healthy eating and encourages limiting small screen recreation through six positive, health promoting key messages. The Munch & Move program fits within the new National Quality Framework and the Early Years Learning Framework.
Early childhood is the ideal time for children to develop and practice healthy eating and physical activity habits; this includes learning a range of fundamental movement skills that will help children take part in and enjoy physical activity throughout their lives.
Children spend a substantial amount of time in early childhood settings including preschools, long day care services and family day care services. Because so many children attend these services, they provide ideal settings to increase awareness of appropriate physical activity and healthy eating habits.
Establishing sound eating and activity habits from an early age gives children the best chance of leading a healthy life and maintaining a healthy weight. Munch & Move supports the NSW Government’s priority of preventing childhood overweight and obesity.
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.
