About Explore & Develop North Ryde

Explore & Develop North Ryde’s vision for our service is to provide the highest possible quality outcomes for children in our care through innovation within the early childhood industry, exceptional care and education, celebration within our community and leadership with heart.

We follow The Early Years Learning Framework in developing our program to ensure it offers a variety of child directed, child inspired and educator guided opportunities. We value play based learning as an ideal context for young children’s development and this is reflected in our practice. An interest based approach takes the whole child into account, focusing on their social, interpersonal, emotional, physical, cognitive and developmental needs. We believe that children have a right to be appreciated as they are at this present moment. Each child’s developmental journey is unique and occurs at its own pace. Our art as educators is to be able to be with the child during this developmental journey with love, care and guidance.

Our educational programs are derived from current research and our educators undergo continual training in evidence-based approaches to early childhood education. We have great partnerships with local universities and undertake several research projects each year. This ensures we remain at the forefront of our field for and to the benefit of our children, families and educators. Our curriculum moves beyond the classroom. By engaging an Outdoor Learning Coordinator and a minibus, this allows us to provide valuable experiences in the greater outdoors. All age groups travel on excursions to discover that we belong to a wider community, allowing us to build relationships with local initiatives and services. Key programs include Bush School and Swim School.

  • Sofia Gomez - 4 months ago

    This is a wonderful place. My daughter after two bad experiences at other centres has settled in very well here. The Educators are excellent and caring.

  • Ann Nonny - 4 months ago

    Used to be reliable and good place for kids but some changes started to show probably a year ago. Educators started some silly politic games among themselves and most of them are working part times. Turnover rate went up and the educators always look tired any time of the day. One educator told me she had to quit as she was getting paid only $23 per hour while she could get paid much better working in a retail. While 'primary carer' program was a really good move, it didn't work well as the staff members left the place for various reasons. The management team blamed the industry and explained not much they can do to make any changes. In regards the high turnover rate, they blamed the industry situation and the new generation young girls not mentally strong enough to be independent. Considering the daily fee you pay ($149 per day), it was really depressing to hear their comment. Compare to other centres in the area, I agree they are still better than many other places. But I was surprised when I heard that they got "exceeding the standard" in all rating categories this time.
