Kiah Infant Room
8 Weeks to 24 months
At Aberfoyle Hub Community Children’s Centre our educators feel very privileged to be caring for your precious baby.
Your baby’s individual needs are most important to us and we meet these in a loving and caring environment. Creating strong and secure attachments are the foundations to successful learning. In the Kiah Room our children feel nurtured, appreciated and positive about themselves which enables them to explore and learn.
We respect each child as an individual; we speak to children at their level of understanding and show them we care about their needs. We encourage experimenting and hands-on learning through play and daily routines. Each child has their own learning profile book which includes individual programmed observations and planned activity reports. These profiles are designed to celebrate the child’s learning journey and are available for parents and children to look through at all times.
‘Kiah’ means a beautiful place in the Kaurna language.
The Kiah team are well resourced with access to 5 hours non-contact time for programming and planning each fortnight. Our educators have access to up-to-date professional development and training experiences regularly to support their ongoing learning.

Emergent CurriculumAt Aberfoyle Hub Community Children’s Centre we have a strong focus on the development of relationships between children and educators. The strength of the relationship between your child and our educators underpins your child’s well-being in our centre. Our flexible programming supports your child’s development by providing intimate times for discussion, songs, books and games that are stimulating and challenging. Our program is planned in line with the Early Years Learning Framework and focuses on an emergent curriculum. Children develop competencies through opportunities to make choices that direct the focus of their learning; experiences are tailored to their changing interests and follow a dynamic progression.
