“It is our vision that each child who comes through our door, joins a community of children, families and teachers engaged in the joy, work and wonder of childhood”. Children are all individuals and they need to be encouraged to discover and reach their full potential. To achieve this they need a loving, stimulating and non-threatening environment, which nurtures and challenges them.

We believe children need a sense of belonging. By providing a safe, nurturing, socially just program, stimulating experiences and positive interactions, all aspects of a child’s learning and development is facilitated in order to support each family’s efforts in raising their child to become competent and confident learners with skills to equip them for lifelong learning.”
