OUR VALUES

A safe, nurturing environment which fosters
curiosity and celebrates creativity.

Lavelle Academy is a purpose-built preschool, where every inch has been designed and created with the children’s safety, engagement and independence in mind.

RESPECT FOR NATURE

Flexible learning areas allow our experienced education team to utilise each space in a different manner, taking the children’s interests and needs into consideration. Sliding doors help to create smaller spaces, perfect for focussed learning experiences. Keeping the sliding doors open creates a beautiful space for the children to share and explore together, extending their experiences

SALT-WATER SWIMMING POOL

Our salt-water swimming pool allows children to build confidence in water that is kinder to their eyes and skin

VEGETABLE GARDEN

Spending time in the vegetable and herb garden nurtures children’s love of nature as they experience and learn about the natural world in a safe enviroment. Having a hands-on experience in the garden develops reasoning and discovery skills as children learn about the science of plants, animals, weather, the environment and nutrition. A sense of responsibility is nourished in the need to care for plants and vegetables

GREEN SPACES

An abundance of green space to explore, create games and take risks is a crucial part of each child’s day at Lavelle. Being immersed in nature promotes positive mental and physical health.

TREE-TOP PLAYGROUND

Lavelle’s tree-top playground allows children to experience their world from a different height and perspective! This unique space includes a ‘bird nest’ around the branches of a tree where children can put their bravery, curiosity and balance to the test!

FURNITURE

All our furnitures are made locally from sturdy, natural maple wood.

FLEXIBLE LEARNING SPACES

Each studio is a reflection of the children inhabiting that space. Materials and objects reflect their interests and areas of curiosity, thoughtfully placed to support each individual child on their learning journey.

A love of reading is the greatest gift you can give to a child. Our ever-growing library is located in the reception area where both educators and families have free access to spend precious time reading to children, fostering a love of reading to last a lifetime.

The art studio houses a wide variety of tools and materials which children can use for their own wonderful creations. Children think and communicate in endless ways: drawing, painting, sculpting, inventing, dreaming. Whatever language a child is comfortable expressing themselves in, they will find a rich vocabulary of learning in the art studio.

Twirling, swirling, banging and shaking in the music and movement studio supports children in learning how to express themselves with their whole body. A space to move, listen, collaborate, respect and discover just what they are capable of.

Early childhood is an important time to establish healthy eating habits. Our daily snacks and meals provide a balanced diet, ensuring children have the essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients for healthy growth and development. Fresh, locally sourced food is prepared daily on site. A variety of Asian, Western and vegetarian dishes are provided. Lavelle Academy takes pride in our collaboration with a renowned chef to make mealtimes joyful for our children.
