Our Learning Environments

Cool Bananas consists of two buildings, three separate playgrounds and a total of five beautiful classrooms! Each classroom has a one year age range, but it is important to note that children don’t automatically move to the next room on their birthday! Not only does it depend on availability in the new room for the day your child attends, it is often beneficial for a child’s confidence and development to remain in a room as one of the ‘big kids’ for a period of time.

It is well known that children learn best when they have secure relationships with caring adults. When children from a very early age develop trusting relationships, they feel more confident and able to explore and learn. We believe when children feel emotionally secure, they learn through play to develop the skills and understandings they need to interact positively with others and gradually learn to take responsibility.

We’ve incorporated a beach theme around Cool Bananas, as many children associate the beach with fun and happiness!
