We believe that children are confident involved learners, who through play, exploration and experiences, can connect and contribute to the world around them.

We recognize the importance of play-based learning in the early years; that children have a strong sense of identity which means they learn best when they feel safe and secure.

We provide a home away from home to enable children to have a strong sense of wellbeing and to assist them reach their full potential in their developmental journey.
