Babies  (0–12 months)

Welcome to our nursery

We know how important the first two years of life are. At Young Academics, we help nurture your little one with our developmentally appropriate resources, safe spaces and supportive educators and programs. At a time when your child is undergoing rapid growth and development, our centres aim to give them the best start in life. Our programs provide a safe and nurturing environment for babies from 6 weeks to 2 years. Our Evolution program for babies recognises individual differences and ensure that goals and milestones are tailored to the unique development of each child.

Growing with YA

We focus on establishing a foundation for lifelong learning through safe, secure and supportive relationships. We know that our environment and staff play a crucial role in developing a sense of identity, which is why we have invested in skilled educators who care about your child.

Our Evolution program acknowledges that babies are explorers and focuses on their development in five key areas, which are informed by the Early Years Learning Framework. Discover more about how our Evolution program does this here. At Young Academics, we aim to provide plenty of opportunities for your baby to achieve developmental milestones in a context of deliberate exploration and intentional teaching.

Our safe nurturing environments allow for freedom of movement for your little one to stretch, move around, walk, and dance, as they slowly build their physical abilities and become more active. In this way, children learn to develop their sense of health and physical wellbeing as they refine their complex sensory-motor skills and movement patterns.


By providing warm and trusting relationships alongside our safe and nurturing environments, we support your child in building a foundation for their social development. From reactions to responsiveness to attention spans, our programs deliberately encourage children’s efforts to communicate their emotions, both verbally and non-verbally.


Through conscious bonding and genuine affection, our educators build a rapport with your child and as a result, your child learns to confidently communicate their own emotional needs. Our programs and educators work cohesively to help your child learn to connect with themselves and others.


We are dedicated to ensuring that children are confident learners. Our centres provide age-appropriate resources, such as matching and sorting games, that offer challenge, spark interest and promote enquiry. At the same time, we ensure that they enjoy the learning process. Combine all of these elements, and your little one masters the skills relevant to their development.


Verbal and non-verbal interactions are crucial for your infant’s development. Our programs encourage effective communications through reading aloud, giving simple instructions, and developing specific play routines. Along the way, our expert educators respond to your child’s own interests in learning
