Our Salisbury Centre consists of three large open space rooms. The environment is prepared so that children can actively make choices as they learn and grow.
The Salisbury centre team are a passionate group of educators who love working with children. We work with families and communicate via email, our Emali App, and parent-teacher interviews.
Our Cradle Room has a large open space for babies to explore. We offer a multitude of experiences to foster development while meeting their routine needs. These are varied and range from from sensory play to language experiences. The Cradle Room has a separate, quiet cot room for the babies sleep. Babies have their own, engaging outdoor space. This allows them to explore freely and confidently.
The Forest Room allows children to build their independence as they further explore and try new things throughout the day. With help from educators, children begin serving themselves at meal time and caring for themselves and belongings. Our Forest Room offers a range of activities, fostering development and allowing children to make choices. Children also have the choice of indoor or outdoor play.
Safari is a beautiful room prepared to meet the needs of the children. Activities are available to scaffold the individual child in their learning journey. With a pre-reading and pre-writing focus to assist in school preparation. The environment is planned and inviting. The children enjoy caring for our tadpoles and worms.
This centre has an outdoor play area, designed to encourage children to explore the outdoors. The vegetable and herb garden is an interactive experience for our children. They care for the garden and use the produce to assist meal preparation.
Important to note
At Emali we believe in learning through play. The activities at Salisbury include yoga, dance lessons. We also conduct Australian Sign Language and Spanish lessons. Emali have strong relationships with local schools, and children often visit Salisbury Downs and St Augustines. The school teachers work with us to assure a smooth transition for our Safari children as they head off to school.

Meet Our Director
Through her early childhood career, which began over 20 years ago, Tash has had the pleasure of working with children of all ages in various roles. With a passion for child development and a love of observing moments of joy and wonder from children as they learn, Tash believes that guiding children to be the best that they can be and to prepare them for their future is an amazing blessing. With a focus on allowing children to explore and make their own choices, Tash allows children to freely build upon their own interests and learn at a pace that meets their needs. The joy of watching children actively involved in activities of interest and observing as they have the confidence to try new things is what Tash finds the most rewarding.
