ABOUT EXPLORE & DEVELOP

Parramatta


Explore & Develop Parramatta is licensed for 78 children per day, educating and caring for children from birth to six years. At Explore & Develop Parramatta, we aim to provide an environment where children can feel safe, secure and happy. We give priority to nurturing relationships and providing children with consistent emotional support so that they become confident and develop the skills and understandings they need to interact positively with others.

We are committed to equity and believe in all children’s capabilities to succeed. We offer children the freedom to explore and discover through play-based learning whilst providing programs that aim to enrich their learning through planned experiences and programs.

At Explore & Develop Parramatta, our service’s design, furniture and resources have been carefully researched and selected to ensure an environment that is warm, relaxed, safe and secure where children are free to imagine, explore, create and discover so as to be continually learning about themselves, others and the world around them.We provide experiences for the children which include science, music, reptiles, sea life experiences, sewing, language classes, water safety, police talks, fire brigade visits, cultural inclusion workshops all for the children as part of our services.

We use an electronical program called Kinderloop to communicate curriculum, learning and care routines with families.
