Nursery Program Ages 0-2
Young Phoenix Academy’s Nursery Program is set in a nurturing environment that provides babies and young children with optimal support for learning and development during their first two years of life.
Our homely classroom features interactive learning areas, soft spaces, mirrors and pull-up bars, abundant resources, cozy cot rooms, project tables, a designated mealtime area, and two separate outdoor play areas.
Learning in our Nursery focuses on providing children with a positive introduction to learning through warm, respectful, and responsive relationships between educators, children, and families.
Through play-based learning experiences, our educators support children in safely exploring their environment, achieving developmental milestones, acquiring language skills, refining their senses, discovering their independence, and developing the dispositions to become curious and confident learners.
Fees for our Nursery Program are $110 per day before the Child Care Subsidy is applied. Nutritious meals, including a puree menu for children under 12 months, is included in our daily fees. To learn more, enquire today.
