About

Kinfolk Early Learning introduces a holistic, Reggio Emilia inspired program and facility to the Albury Wodonga region.

Light-filled and with a sense of ‘home’, our architecturally-designed and purpose-built centre is in the heart of Albury, providing care for children aged six weeks to school age.

Philosophy

Children are at the centre of everything we do at Kinfolk.

Kinfolk Early Learning is child-centred, holistic and inspired by the internationally renowned Reggio Emilia philosophy. Every part of Kinfolk is designed with your child at the centre of their early learning experience, supported by our four core values:

Nutrition

Research has shown that nutrition plays a vital role in the physical and cognitive wellbeing of children.

Quality nutrition is an essential part of the Kinfolk experience. We provide a healthy breakfast, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea, as well as fruit snacks throughout the day.

Water is always available, and our fresh fruit, vegetables and produce are sourced from our edible gardens and local suppliers.

Our meal times accommodate for individual needs and reflect home dining experiences, with children encouraged to contribute to meal planning, setting and clearing.

Our Centre

Our architecturally designed centre is located in the heart of Albury, and has been purpose built to reflect our philosophy and values.

Our large, light-filled piazza is a communal space housing our central kitchen. Our creative space, Atelier, provides a dedicated area for children to explore and interact.

Detailed attention has been placed on planning each indoor and outdoor space at the centre, with a focus on nature and sustainability. Our centre has been designed to stimulate children’s creativity, exploration and sense of belonging.

Governance

Our educational programs and care are based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and benchmarked against the National Quality Standards (NQS).

This is an agreement between all Australian governments to provide improved educational and developmental outcomes for children.
