Nursery (0-2 years)

Childcare Centre



Here in our nursery (also known as the Tadpoles room) at Nestle In Alstonville, you can be confident that your little one is in the best possible care available on the Northern Rivers. With a purpose-built environment, we accommodate for ages 0 – 2 years. In the Tadpoles room, we make the transition into care as smooth as possible, providing care that caters for each child’s individual routine as well as supporting the development of each child.

With a mix of soft area’s consisting of carpet and cushions to the hard floor areas – all set up to support and encourage developing children both safely and securely.

Whether you are a new parent or curious as to how we operate at Nestle In; we encourage parents to visit our centre for a “day in the life” of their child. During this visit, you can experience the Tadpoles environment and gain a better understanding of how we can accommodate to your little one’s routine. This will help parents feel more secure and confident in your choice of care for your child.

Our nursery program reflects and encourages the children’s milestones; this includes addressing attachments issues, self-help skills and gross motor skills such as sitting, crawling and walking.

Children learn from cause and effect experiences, such as “If I do this, that will happen”. From here our program flows into early literacy. Such things as picture books, simple songs, rhymes, labelling items in their environment and finger plays are integrated into their daily routine. Along with early numeracy activities such as counting 1,2,3 to stacking blocks and cups is encouraged.

In the Nestle In Alstonville nursery creativity is also widely promoted. Extensively developing their young minds through the use of finger painting, small/thick brush painting, sand, water and play dough - all great sensory activities.
