Derby Children’s Service

Our service has a large outdoor area shaded by beautiful boab trees. We have two resident chickens that the children love to collect the eggs from daily.

One of the highlights of each year is participating in the annual Boab Festival Parade. This is held in the first week of July. The children enjoy dressing up and making props and costumes with the help of our families and educators. The boab trees give the town its special character.

During the last school term of each year, we collaborate with the local school to offer a school readiness program. This is designed to help the children prepare for their transition to primary school in the following year.

Our approach

We foster the belief that the child, parent, community and natural environment are all essential to the learning process. We embrace the Reggio Emilia philosophy that has strong roots in nature. Our focus is on a learning environment, enriched with creative and sensory experiences as avenues for growth that allows each child to reach their true potential.
