Early Childhood Curriculum – Best Of The Best

At ToBeMe, we believe there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to learning. Children learn at their own pace in their own way, and our aim is to provide a holistic curriculum that identifies and responds to their way of learning from day one.

Our unique ToBeMe Early Learning CurriculumTM offers a well-rounded framework in which children are encouraged to learn by developing connections with the world around them. This connections-based curriculum harmonises the key ways of learning (kinaesthetic, visual, auditory) and the very best of the best teaching practices (Montessori, Reggio Emilia, and THRASS) so that no matter how your child likes to learn, there is something to inspire, excite and fuel their imagination each and every day.

Early Years

Sparking a love of learning in 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.

Preparatory School

Our Prep School classroom is set up to mirror a primary school environment in preparation for your child’s journey to kindergarten. This includes 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.


Healthy self-esteem, self-control and a growth mindset.Being aware of and recognising self-regulation. This is especially important in preparing our children for school. Children learn to problem solve, take turns and wait.
