  • Camperdown, 59 Denison Street

    Welcome to Explore & Develop Camperdown. An architectural award winning inner city oasis for young children to explore and inquire through a play based learning philosophy. Our programs incorporate the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) which covers birth to five years and supports transition to formal schooling.

    We believe and apply an emergent curriculum. This is based on the theory that if a child is engaged in an activity that interests them, it is the educator’s role to collaborate and support that engagement. Our unique approach is all-inclusive—encompassing the child’s intellectual, social and moral development.
