Each child is driven by a natural desire to explore, experience and discover all the wonders of the world around them. This inbuilt drive is intrinsic to the growth and development of young children and plays an important role in early education.
At St Nicholas Early Education, our team of educators work to nurture and develop each child’s inner curiosity through the delivery of a play-based and child-led curriculum which puts the individual child at the centre of their own learning journey.
Opening January 2019, St Nick’s Raymond Terrace is a 77-place early education centre catering to children 0 - 5 years of age.
Raymond Terrace early education centre will feature a dedicated 12-place nursery for children aged 0 - 2. As with all St Nick’s centres, nappies and cot linens are provided.
In addition to a nursery, St Nick’s Raymond Terrace includes a 20-place two-year-old program, a 20-place three-year-old program and a 25-place preschool program for children aged between four and five.
Included in the delivery of our early education services at St Nick’s Raymond Terrace is a full service food menu which includes: a breakfast bar, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack.
Operating from 6.30am - 6.00pm, St Nicholas Early Education Raymond Terrace will be operating out of what is now Williamtown early education and preschool. We will continue to offer services currently available to RAAF families as well as the community in Port Stephens.
St Nick’s will also be providing an investment to the outdoor areas at Raymond Terrace. The substantial upgrade will provide St Nick’s Kids with the opportunity to engage in more nature-based activities.
The upgrade to the outdoor play area will include areas like: a mud kitchen; cubby-houses and teepees; and free space for children to run and provide areas of height which allow for exploration of their surroundings.
