Developing an early love for learning

Children’s social and emotional skills are so important during these years and provide a strong foundation for early literacy and numeracy. Children learn best when they believe that they can. Through a rich combination of play-based and intentional teaching, our Kindergarten programs allow them the freedom to explore their interests and ideas and to contribute to learning and discovery across indoor and outdoor learning spaces. Learning extensions in local communities, accessed via incursions and excursions will help confidence grow everyday and support their transition to preschool and beyond.

Our commitment to excellence in early childhood education

At canopy Early Education, we are passionate about providing exceptional early childhood education and care. We follow Australia’s National Quality Framework (NQF) which focuses on key areas that are vital for children’s positive development. These services are regularly assessed and rated, so you can be confident about the quality of care your child receives.

Focusing on Key Learning Outcomes

Within the NQF, we incorporate essential learning outcomes, principles, and practices that put children’s rights and best interests first. Our aim is to help children become successful, confident, and capable learners. The Early Years Learning Framework highlights five important Learning Outcomes:

A strong sense of identity

Connection and contribution to their world

A strong sense of wellbeing

Confidence and involvement in learning

Effective communication skills

Building a love for learning

Our government-approved Kindergarten Programs’ curriculum is based on the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines. This allows our canopy early childhood Kindergarten teachers to deliver a quality program that meets national and state standards and regulations, alongside their commitment to providing a nurturing and stimulating learning environment to support your child’s early education.

Kindy community connection

At canopy Early Education, building strong connections with local schools is a crucial part of our school readiness program. This helps ensure a smooth transition for children and a sense of community belonging for our families. To achieve this, we provide excursions to the local schools, hold informational sessions for families, and invite school staff and students to visit our childcare centres. Additionally, community incursions and excursions help build the childrens’ confidence and ease their transition to Primary School and beyond. Towards the end of the year, we host an end-of-year graduation ceremony celebrating their early years learning journey and development. This support enables children to begin formal schooling as independent, creative, problem-solving learners.

Our toddler daughter has thrived at Little Cribb, since starting as a baby. The team are incredible and go over and above to make sure the children feel comfortable and settled. The big bonus at Little Cribb is the large outdoor play yard and our daughter has definitely benefitted from the shared play times with all ages in this area. Easy parking for pickups and drop off help too. Would highly recommend Little Cribb and API!

The educators have made my son’s transition to starting daycare incredibly easy. They’re very personable, flexible, and eagerly work in with you to meet your family’s needs and ease your worries. I highly recommend Big Cribb!

Brittany – 2023

Our daughter Lola has been at API for over 5 years. She was only 6 months old when she first went and is starting school this year. The people we’ve met and the love, care, and kindness we’ve been shown is amazing. Nothing has ever been a problem and anything that has come up I’ve been given guidance and support to overcome. From the exceptional teaching, communication, learning, facilities, administration and friendship, everyone at API have been such a big part of our lives for so long. I highly recommend this “family” to everyone. Lola has made such great friends over the years, with not only the little people but all the teachers and staff too. They show a perfect balance of learning, play, culture, and nurturing. Highly recommended!

Sharon – 2023

I’m so grateful to have found such a kind, caring, safe place for my son to be looked after on the days I need to work. My child has been going to Big Cribb since October 2021 and I couldn’t imagine a better centre. They are inclusive, communicative and the staff seem to genuinely care. My son has learnt so much and I love getting updates and photos of their activities each day. I highly recommend this childcare centre.

Kelly – 2022

Our daughter has been attending the centre for nearly six months and we have been so impressed with the whole API experience. It was the first time sending our little one to daycare and the transition has been seamless. All the educators are so lovely and have a genuine love for the children, most mornings our daughter runs happily into an educator’s arms. Communication is excellent (in particular the daily updates of our child’s day via an app).
