We support the belief that children gain an understanding of the world around them through concrete experiences. We provide programs that are encouraging, safe, warm and routine. They assist children to develop their potential in the intellectual, physical, social and emotional aspects of their lives.
Our curriculum is based on the belief that it is through play that children develop cognitive, physical, creative, emotional and social skills. This gives all children the freedom to interact with the people and the environment around them, leading to a positive self-image and autonomy. All children are individuals and develop at different rates. Each child is encouraged to reach full potential through a range of experiences that are planned to meet individual needs. Monday to Friday 9:00am to 3:00pm during school terms.
