High Quality Childcare In Southport.

The Nest Early Learning Centre Of Excellence has had quite a few busy months since opening their doors in September.

The centre is filled with laughter and chatter and our children are thriving in our surroundings.

See what has happened over the last month and if you are looking for high-quality childcare in Southport, we invite you to come along and visit The Nest.

Our exploration of Christmas has begun! How amazing are these interpretations?

Art in a Reggio environment is an interpretation of an experience, not a copy of other’s ideas or suggestions. We treat art as an expression of the child’s current understandings, rather than a representation of an object. This perspective makes art a tool for making meaning further supporting our process before product philosophy..

Our little kindness angel hiding in the Christmas tree one morning.. such delight on the children’s faces when they find their little angels and then discuss how they can display/create/interact with the kindness intention.. such a lovely and beautiful addition to our pillars of kindness.

Outdoor play or as we like to call it “outdoor classrooms” are such a great way to let the children explore their surroundings and get connected to the outside world.

We spend lots of time foraging the grounds for herbs, veggies and even go on little adventures to the park on our grounds to give the children

The spirit of Christmas is really coming alive in the centre. We are having a wonderful time with the kids and we can’t believe how much the kids in our care have already accomplished. They truly are the centre of our universe and we look forward to seeing what they accomplish over the next month.

The Nest Is The Best

“What children learn does not follow as an automatic result from what is taught, rather it is in large due to the children’s own doing, as a consequence of their activities and our resources’ -Loris Malaguzzi, The Hundred Languages of Children’

We firmly believe that our children are capable and competent beings, who develop themselves by interacting with others.

Our environments and the opportunities that we present to our children give them the confidence to make their learning meaningful. Many looking at these images might just see children playing with dolls.. we see many young hands manipulating buttons, tying laces, working out how press studs work, filling washing buckets, squeezing hose attachments, working out the depth of water needed to submerge dolls, pinching together pegs, how to coordinate holding the clothes and pinching at the same time ( quite a challenging skill for young ones) cooperating with their peers, taking turns, role modelling real life experiences and conversation.. lots of conversation ….both with each other and with the dolls. Such a calm and beautiful morning experience in our warm spring weather.

If you are looking for a quality early learning centre, filled with state of the art resources and operated by passionate and qualified early childhood specialists, look no further than us.. we have a proven track record of providing a wonderful early childhood experience for your whole family.
