Play at Home Activity Booklet

We know being at home with little ones during lockdown can be challenging. We’ve pulled together some activity ideas for you based on our curriculum. 

Feel free to pick and choose activities that best suit the interests of you and your child. Or use our ideas as a springboard to create your own! 

As a local Elwood dad with 12 years of experience in childcare, I am excited to bring this vision to life within my own community.

Nurturing Imagination & Development

We focus on learning through play, valuing it as one of the main ways in which children learn and develop. Play helps to nurture imagination and give a child a sense of adventure. Through this, they can learn essential skills such as problem-solving, working with others, and sharing.

We want to provide every child that joins our nest the opportunity to fall in love with learning and socialising. Our bespoke design and carefully considered learning environments are crafted to ignite curiosity and imagination.

Nutrition to Promote Healthy Minds

Our in-house chef will prepare seasonal menus that are packed with nutrients, ensuring children are nourished with delicious food they will truly love. We select produce from trusted local partners, such as Leaf Elwood, to ensure the freshest fruit and vegetables are served up in every dish.

Curated programs for babies & children aged six weeks to six years, our modern approach to childcare will feel cosy, inviting, safe and most importantly fun. Children will experience a sense of adventure as they develop new friendships and enjoy experiences that will enrich their lives. We will enjoy excursions in the local neighbourhood to satisfy the desire to explore.

Curated Programs & Modern Facilities

Opened April 2021, our exciting new childcare is set to reshape your local childcare offering, all just a ten-minute walk from Elwood Village. Our centre offers bright and spacious rooms, carefully designed play spaces and dynamic outdoor recreation areas.

Our Philosophy

A gentle approach to learning where happiness comes first. At the Elwood Nest, we offer playful and holistic learning that focuses on the needs of each child to nurture imagination and inspire a sense of adventure and fun.

Guided by the Early Years Learning Framework of Australia, our unique education curriculum harnesses the theory of emergent learning and the science of positive psychology.

Thoughtfully curated, our curriculum allows every child the opportunity to have meaningful learning experiences that incorporate their emerging interests to grow, lead and evolve to their full potential. Through our principles, practices and learning outcomes we develop the whole child – physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually.
