At Young Academics, family is important to us, which is why it remains our number one core value. Well over a decade after we were founded, we continue to be a family-owned and operated business. Our family approach and focus on delivering a nurturing and supportive early learning environment has enabled our continuous growth across NSW without compromising the quality or dedication of our care. Our four core values provide a framework for our daily practices and overall purpose, enabling us to provide the best possible outcomes for the children in our care.

Creating a child safe environment is a responsibility that is shared across the Young Academics team. A culture of safety starts with our leaders who champion this and ensure that accountability is upheld by all employees and the Child Safe Standards are embedded into our daily practices. Our industry leading senior management team operates with a strong governance and ensures that openness, transparency, inclusivity and accountability are maintained across the board, encompassing three key areas:
Young Academics is committed to upholding the Child Safe Standards in our day-to-day operations. We provide ongoing learning and professional development to all educators and staff to ensure they have a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of their legal and ethical responsibilities for keeping children safe and protecting their rights.
Our Evolution Program and Transition to School Program are underpinned by a rights-based approach to learning. We recognise the different ways in which children communicate and our educators are responsive and adaptable to each individual child’s needs and approach to learning. Through our programs, children are made to feel safe, supported and informed, and actively participate in their own education and care by being involved in shared decision-making throughout their day.
Our families and communities feel confident in knowing that the safety of the children in our care is always at the forefront of our decision making as a premier early education and care provider.
