Big Bear Academy centres are brand new innovative early learning services found in two locations – Macquarie Fields and St Andrews. Our centres have been professionally built and designed by architectural experts who have developed leading early learning centres across Australia.

At Big Bear Academy we are proud of our state-of-the-art Early Learning centres because they have been specifically designed to enhance all areas of a child’s development including social, emotional, physical and mental growth. Our centres create an environment that encourages a child’s creative skills to flourish.  Our centres provide children with the capacity to grow at their own pace and in their own way, all the while making long-lasting relationships with other children and our team of enthusiastic and experienced early learning educators.

Our two rooms, BOO BOO (16 months to 3-year-olds) and YOGI (3 to 6-year-olds), are designed to allow a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor learning environments so children can ‘free flow’, providing a richer learning experience. Each room has unique circular learning strategies which are implemented in conjunction with their milestone development.

Our natural outdoor areas are one of a kind. Being outdoors and in nature is associated with a range of benefits for children including improved physical, mental and emotional health. Spending meaningful time outside allows children to create a positive connection with the natural world. Our natural environments are constantly changing, providing ample opportunities for our children to explore and learn, ask questions, observe and experiment. Our outdoor area is large and interactive, so children can climb, jump, run and balance not only encouraging muscle development but also their motor skills and risk assessment.

Our centres proudly highlight the creative work of our children, creating a colourful and engaging environment and encouraging a sense of pride in the activities that they participate in. We offer a range of high quality resources that entice the children to learn, investigate and use their imagination. Everything from arts and crafts, toys, books, dress ups, sensory play, educational tools.
