Age Grouping & Rooms

Children are grouped with others of similar ages, so they can play, learn and socialise in environments best suited to their own happiness and development. We provide opportunities for children to engage with peers of all ages as well as family grouping times throughout the day.

Age Groups

Nursery  –  6 weeks to 2 years
Toddlers  –  15 months to 2 years
Junior Kindy  –  2-3 years
Pre-Kindy  –  3-4 years
Kindergarten  –  4-5 years
School Age Care  –  5-12 years

  

Ratios of Children to Educators

Some age groups obviously require more hands on attention from educators than others. At LEAD Childcare, we ensure that the ratio of children to educators is kept within the following guidelines, ensuring that your child always receives the individual attention and care they deserve.

Nursery  –  1 Educator : 4 Children
Toddlers  –  1 Educator : 4 Children
Junior Kindy  –  1 Educator : 5 Children
Pre-Kindy  –  1 Educator : 11 Children
Kindergarten  –  1 Educator : 11 Children
School Age Care  –  no ratios
