Learn More About Our Centre

Rated Exceeding National Quality Standard

Our well-equipped centre offers a rich variety of stimulating indoor and outdoor learning experiences so our children can explore many different environments and situations. In our spacious and naturally-focused outdoor areas, children enjoy playing and relaxing in the shade or tending to our vegetable and herb gardens. We encourage learning about sustainability and nature through recycling and composting food scraps.

Many of our caring, friendly and experienced educators live in the local area and enjoy building close relationships with our families and the local community.

Our nursery is designed to help children feel happy and secure in a caring and nurturing environment where they experience a variety of developmentally-appropriate activities. Our toddlers enjoy a range engaging and stimulating experiences to explore throughout the day, stimulating their self-help skills and develop a growing appreciation of the natural world around them.

The Pre-Kinder and Kinder programs focus on play-led learning, encouraging children to develop their interests and explore their identity through play, arts, literature, music and movement. We ensure our children are happy and settled when engaged in open-ended learning experiences and partner with our neighbouring primary school in projects to help ensure a smoother transition to formal learning.
