Habitat Early Learning Centre Opens in Nundah

A full-service childcare centre with an on-site general practitioner and a chef is holding its Open Day in Nundah on Saturday, the 4th of Jan 2020. Habitat Early Learning at 79 Bage Street is giving parents and their kids the chance to experience the difference of this facility, which promises to go beyond childminding. 

The Open Day will run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Aside from a tour of the centre and a chance to ask the staff questions about their services, parents and children may also join the yoga session at 10:30 a.m. and receive food samples from the in-house kitchen.

Habitat Early Learning Programs

The Nundah site, with its beautifully designed amenities, is the second for Habitat Early Learning. The inaugural facility was established in Ferny Grove in 2009. 

The centre provides various educational programs to support a child’s learning and development, such as: 

  • Emergent Curriculum 
  • Montessori Program
  • Kindergarten Program with Long Day Care Service (approved under the Queensland Kindergarten Funding Scheme
  • Inclusive Extra-Curricular Programs
  • Performing Arts (under Disney star and opera singer Kirby Thompson) 
  • Mandarin Language
  • Happy Habits (yoga and mindfulness)

The classes are spearheaded by a master qualified leadership team trained to focus on child’s education, nutrition and health.

Habitat Early Learning Amenities 

As mentioned, the centre has its own kitchen, where a chef serves freshly prepared food for the children and its staff in the al fresco dining area. Parents may also order packaged meals if they do not have time to cook at home.

Come March, the facility will have a GP and a nurse to tend to sick children and give parents peace of mind. 

Murray and Toni Thornton had the vision to build an early childhood facility that will enhance the learning experience of children between three to five years old. After listening to feedback from parents and staff, the Thortons developed a full-service model for Habitat Early Learning

In 2016, National Quality Standards recognised Habitat Early Learning for its building design. A similar design has been carried over to its Nundah site, which has five classrooms for its Emergent Curriculum and three for its Montessori and Kindergarten programs. 

Habitat Early Learning in Nundah will welcome 40 kids as it begins its classes on Monday, the 6th of Jan 2020.
