Earth Room / Room Bembul

Our rooms for nursery age children

Our two nursery rooms (for 0 to 2-year-olds) are Earth Room with 12 children and Room Bembul with 16 children.

The rooms are divided into indoor and outdoor experiences, cognitive, sensory, relaxation and construction areas, which are set up to cater for each individual child’s needs.

We have separate cot rooms, nappy change areas, a bathing facility, large playrooms (with an abundance of natural light) and separate outdoor playgrounds, which are predominately under sun-safe cover.

Our outdoor play areas have a soft, protective underlay, providing a safe playing environment.

The educators in the Earth & Bembul Rooms are highly experienced and dedicated to providing a fun and engaging environment that aims to cover all areas of your child’s development.

Children in our care are regularly observed and these observations are uploaded onto our app, KinderM8, for parents to keep up to date of their child’s day, this helps to assist our staff with setting learning and development objectives for each child. These objectives are incorporated into our program to assist your child in reaching their developmental milestones.

What is 'Bembul'?

'Bembul' means 'Earth' in the local aboriginal dialect. Members of the local aboriginal community assisted us in keeping our theme of 'Earth' for our infants

How Turtletot came to be

After starting our own family with twins we began researching childcare options in our local area. While there were many good Bexley childcare centres nearby, we didn’t find what we were looking for. Our vision was to find a place that offered a complete service for both children and parents/carers, a full-service childcare centre that felt like home but offered the best professional care and education. We began to research what an all-inclusive service for children aged 0 to 6 leading to primary education would look like, and we created our own vision.

Our learning programmes

We have a well-developed set of learning resources utilising a variety of accredited government and independent programmes.

Did you know?

According to a study of 6-month-old infants, it was found that babies listen by moving their mouths. Psychologists and audiologists found that when a pacifier prevented babies from moving their tongues, they were not able to distinguish between two novel 'd' sounds.
