Small and intimate with just 23 children, Learning Adventures Masterton has one large, welcoming, nurturing space for children aged from 7 weeks to 5 years. This provides a great opportunity for children to interact with different age groups and brings the added benefit of older children learning to help and care for the younger ones.

This routine is flexible to meet children’s needs throughout the day. Children sleep and have bottles as required for their individual routine, and meal times are also flexible depending on their needs. Learning experiences are provided throughout the day. Nappy changes are done 2 hours after children arrive and every 3 hours after that unless needed sooner.
