The Reggio Emilia philosophy embraces the belief that children, from birth, are curious, capable and equipped to learn and interact with the world around them.
Through listening to our children we are able to gain insight into the different ways they interpret the world and represent their ideas and thinking.

An exceptional Day Care and Kindergarten experience

We offer 7.00am to 6.00pm long day care, five days a week, for children from the age of six weeks up to five years and three and four-year-old kindergarten programs.

Amici is a safe and exciting space for children in which they can develop, explore, repeat, refine and extend their learning.

The Amici Centre has a Cook who works on the premises, providing nutritious, well balanced meals and snacks. The weekly menus are developed in line with the Recommended Daily Intake of nutrients guidelines for young children. Food is prepared using fresh, wholesome ingredients, providing varied and balanced meals and morning and afternoon tea each day.
