About Explore and Develop - Penrith

Explore & Develop Penrith is conveniently located in the Penrith CBD. We are a short walk from Penrith Station and Westfield Shoppingtown.

Explore & Develop Penrith foster an emergent curriculum. Generally speaking, this means that when educators program and plan for children they are using children’s interests to do this. Explore & Develop Penrith have a play-based learning style which allows children to explore, wonder and be curious in their environment. This supports children to problem solve, think rationally, use skills of trial and error, and much more. The benefits of play can be seen as a positive approach to learning that accommodates for educator involvement. This is important as we believe that educator involvement is crucial to support each individual child in their learning. Through play and interest’s, children learn to be independent in their learning however recognise when they need assistance. This, in turn, allows for educators to foster and scaffold children’s learning.

Another component of our curriculum which is very important to us is creating time for our families. We feel by doing this we are helping them feel comfortable and welcome which also allows for a connection to the child’s home which fundamentally links the child’s beliefs, culture and facilitates communication.

Explore and Develop - Penrith Reviews

  • Heidi Stevens - over 1 year ago

    My daughter is enrolled with E&D and I cannot speak more highly of the whole team. Over and above the numerous standards and procedures, as a new Mum I was looking for Centre that could offer a fun and nurturing environment away from familiar surroundings and the staff in my daughters room do just that! It is evident that the children are genuinely happy and thriving as a result of the well rounded learning program and day to day activities which include indigenous tribute. Thank you!

    I cannot recommend the team at E&D highly enough. From my initial phone inquiry through to orientation and then the all dreaded drop off (for mum, not bub) the team have been amazing. They are passionate, loving, caring, compassionate, full of helpful advice and always available for chat. I cannot imagine sending my little boy anywhere else.
