We offer our children the opportunity to explore through play using their own interests to support their growing knowledge in the areas of science, maths, computers, multi-culture, diversity and gender equality.

Our play based, stimulating curriculum is based on the Early Years’ Learning Framework and our rooms – from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool – are all geared with this in mind. We also develop colourful, engaging programs accounting for each child’s individual interests, needs and strengths; and with each step we are ensuring the children are ready to take the big step into schooling.
