Grow with Care.
GrowingTree Early Education is located in the leafy Brisbane suburb of Petrie. We provide long day care in a family-orientated natural environment where young children are nurtured through our Nursery, Toddler, Junior Preschool and Preschool programs. We attribute an exceedingly high importance to the teaching profession. We select great people to teach, support them and strongly promote professional development. We personalize teaching and learning to engage with each child’s interest, individuality, and creativity.
GrowingTree Early Education offers a unique early learning experience through its broad and diverse programs, bespoke natural outdoor playground, integrated imaginative play areas and learning spaces designed specifically to challenge and extend each child’s developmental stage as they progress through their educational journey with us.
A comprehensive renovation and remodel of the facility will be undertaken to ensure that our brand-new environment is designed to provide our children with the absolute best in early education and care.
Our programs have a strong emphasis on play-based learning as play is the best vehicle for young children’s learning providing the most appropriate stimulus for brain development. Our programs also recognise the importance of communication, language, social & emotional development.READ MORE
We believe that hands-on, experimental learning is the best educational approach for children and we do this through a strong connection to nature and the outdoors, interest-lead learning, emergent curriculum, a play-based focus, enquiry-based teaching style and authentic play..READ MORE
Play & learning are entwined in such a way that it is difficult to separate.
Play is vital for children. When Children’s natural curiosity is encouraged, learning flows!
Through play young children explore and learn to understand the world around them as they come to communicate, discover, imagine and create.
Our educational team at GrowingTree Early Education will lead, mentor, support and encourage learning in all of our classrooms by planning and delivering a broad and diverse program that uses the EYLF and National Quality Standards (‘NQS’) as its foundation. Using EYLF and the NQS as a founding base, our team will also incorporate an emergent curriculum with the aid of respected learning philosophies of Reggio Emilia. The role of our team is to facilitate learning.
