The Hub was founded in 2016, with a passion to provide high quality Early Childhood Education and Care to the Newcastle and Hunter Valley community.
This passion was driven by years of experience working with and alongside our local people, educating children, supporting their families, with a vision to see the face of early childhood changed, to be one of PURPOSE.
We are family owned, family operated and supported by a team of highly qualified early childhood professionals who boast decades of experience working with children and their families.
We recognise that play is not just a pastime for children, but a vital tool for their belonging, being and becoming as individuals, and as active participants in their communities.
Inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy, our curriculum is designed to foster children’s innate curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking skills. Our spaces are dynamic learning laboratories, where children engage in hands-on activities, projects, and collaborative experiences. Through these experiences, they develop problem-solving abilities and communication skills.
We are guided by many theorists and early education professionals both in Australia and abroad who are passionate about the advocacy of children and their learning. Our carefully crafted curriculum ignites children’s imagination as it is designed by the children, for the children. We listen to children’s ideas, visions and curiosities and we use these to plan and implement experiences and projects that inspire them to extend these ideas into programs that provide wonderment.
