While pursuing a successful career in law, Young Academics Founder, James Kazzi was struck by how many of his colleagues spoke to him about their struggles to find childcare that provided a nurturing, individualised educational approach for their children.
With a strong passion for education since a young age, James, along with his family, envisioned a better approach to early learning and care, where centres were integral parts of the communities they belonged to, while also providing high quality, individualised care for children from a diverse range of cultures and backgrounds.
Today, Young Academics continues to grow and expand, providing communities with the very best in early learning programs, teaching methods, nutrition, and above all, the highest level of personal care for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years in purpose built, state of the art centres.
These centres are supported by a passionate team of early childhood experts at the Young Academics Central Hub who ensure that each centre is always implementing best practice in everything they do, from qualifications to processes and curriculum!
Young Academics is family owned and operated so family values sit at the heart of everything they do. We hope to welcome your family into the YA family soon.
At Young Academics, we’re dedicated to giving children aged 6 weeks to 6 years the brightest possible start. We’re committed to providing the very best in programs, teaching methods, nutrition, and above all the highest level of personal care to every child.
Because no two little learners are the same, we provide early learning and care that’s shaped around each individual child in state of the art learning environments. Our facilities and resources are second to none.
Children are encouraged to explore, learn and develop at their own pace. And while education underpins everything we do, our play-based approach means that little ones are always allowed to be little ones.
We believe that early childhood is a celebration of learning. We show this by honouring diversity and valuing our staff, children, families and the wider community every day.
We want Young Academics to feel like a home away from home, so we keep family values at the heart of everything we do. It’s about closeness, trust, unity and teamwork.
Always on the front foot, we’re constantly seeking ways to improve what we do. Just like your children, we’re always learning, growing, adapting and evolving.
We love looking after children – it’s that simple. It’s what drives us to ensure we’re always implementing best practice in everything we do, from qualifications to processes and curriculum. There’s no place for cutting corners!
Trust is everything in childcare, and we work hard to earn it. Whether we’re communicating with families or with each other, we’re truthful, respectful and responsive.
