Play based learning programs

Children learn best when they engage in play in a range of environments. Play helps children feel good about themselves. We encourage children to explore across a range of settings, themes and contexts. 

By laying a foundation on developing social, emotional and physical skills we are providing the context for future learning and knowledge.

Language, literacy and numeracy and cognitive development begins at the very early stages. 

Community & Environment

We encourage children to develop a strong sense of self and place through our programs and incursions. We develop learning opportunities around key events taking place in the broader community and have extensive calendar of events.
