Juniors-Room-Ormeau-Elm-Tree-Early-Learning-4Our Junior Room program fosters your child’s curiosity and encourages independent thinking. We nurture all children to reach their full potential through development of physical, emotional, cognitive and social skills through varied indoor and outdoor activities. Our educators care for the well-being of each child to ensure that their experience and learning is positive and fruitful.


Our educators believe in forming strong, nurturing and trusting bonds and relationships with our children and families, and we will always ensure a safe, warm and comforting environment for everyone. Children in the Junior Kindergarten learn how to play with others in a sharing and rewarding way, and learn to understand their feelings by exposing them to new ideas and concepts.

Our Goal

Self Identity & Independence

Juniors-Room-Ormeau-Elm-Tree-Early-Learning-5In our Juniors Room, your children will play in a stimulating and happy environment and will learn to express themselves independently. Our program is designed to support and nurture your child’s development with their social skills, self-awareness, and respect for others, as well as nurturing their creativity, imagination and self-expression. By doing this, the children are able to feel a great sense of achievement and belonging when making their own contributions to the world around them – no matter how big or small.


Our Focus

Self Help Skills & Development 

Juniors-Room-Ormeau-Elm-Tree-Early-Learning-2We recognise, as individuals, each child has different strengths and interests. We support this by encouraging children to make their own choices and decisions through self-selection and child initiated activities such as what group activities they would like to do or which medium they wish to use for their next masterpiece. This promotes independence and self-help skills.

Juniors-Room-Ormeau-Elm-Tree-Early-Learning-4We also encourage the children to develop a greater responsibility for their own belongings, their own choices and behaviours, and support them to begin to look after themselves and their own care needs, such as toileting etc.
