Explorers Nunawading – Opening Spring 2020

On track to open in Spring, our latest centre Explorers Nunawading is currently under construction.

We are excited to see so much progress at recent site visits. With framing almost complete we are seeing our beautiful classrooms come to life! Construction is moving along at a rapid rate and our landscape design is also taking shape.

Explorers Nunawading is architecturally designed with detailed attention placed on planning each indoor and outdoor space, along with a focus on nature and sustainability. Our centre is designed to stimulate children’s creativity, exploration and create and strong sense of belonging.

Our little Explorers children at Nunawading will have the opportunity to play outdoors in large yards designated to each age group. We will have a variety of community gardens, animal enclosures, worm farms, compost, sand pits, mud play areas and much more. Our child initiated, play based program stimulates children’s learning, exploration, and social connections.

At Explorers, we like to give our children extra! Our Extras Program has been created to enhance our children’s experience and provide opportunities for learning in specialised areas. Our Extras Program includes:

  • Gardening & Sustainability
  • Creative Arts
  • Music & Movement
  • French Language Class
  • Speech Therapy

This program is taught by specialist teachers and provided to our families at no additional cost, all children have opportunity to participate.

Kindergarten at Explorers

Explorers Nunawading will feature our Kinder Program for 3 and 4 year olds.

Kinder at Explorers focuses on preparing children for school using a play based approach that emphasises learning through exploration and investigation.

Run by qualified and passionate Kindergarten Teachers, the program encourages children to be creative in all areas, whether it is problem solving or the expressive arts. It also encourages lateral thinking and positive social interactions.

Our program will run within long day care hours.
