ToBeMe Early Learning CurriculumTM
We are a passionate group of early childhood professionals who are dedicated to finding better ways of learning and teaching. Our goal is simple: to spark a love of learning from an early age and encourage children on a lifelong journey in education.
Our curriculum is based on the best of the best teaching practices and philosophies and is centred on understanding your child’s and family’s specific needs whilst giving your child every opportunity to learn and grow.
We base the ToBeMe Early Learning CurriculumTM on four key connections. Through this holistic approach, children experience quality education and important life skills that encourage a curiosity and relationship with the world around them.

Engaging children at a very early age is important to help them develop into their best selves. Babies are born learning, and as they grow into toddlers, they learn through play, exploration and interactions with others. Our Early Years Classrooms and outdoor areas are designed with a focus on self and emotional confidence.
Our Prep School room is set up to mirror a primary school environment in preparation for a child’s journey to kindergarten. Our Prep School curriculum offers an established program between 9am and 3pm (within our normal 7am – 6pm day) providing 4 to 6 year olds with a range of learning experiences like no other.
