- Lots of shade is provided by shade structures and large leafy trees.
- A wide range of equipment and toys supports children’s physical development.
- Learning programs for each group follow an emergent curriculum approach which is spontaneous and responsive to the interests of children and reflective of the cultural diversity of the families.

“When our son took us around the centre on his last day, saying goodbye to all of his favourite spots, while sharing his special moments with us, we were overwhelmed by how comfortable, confident and happy he has felt in his 4 years at NRCCC. Our son’s transition to big school has been an easy one and our thanks go to the dedicated staff at NRCCC who provided him with such rich learning experiences, both social and academic.” - Senta Nowy
“The dedicated staff at NRCCC always welcome children's ideas/interests and then they develop, extend and enhance those interests. The children don’t even realise how much they are learning through their play, exploration and just having fun with their friends! What a wonderful environment for a child to learn and grow!” - Marianne Kraszewski
