Our Learning Environments

Our engaging indoor and outdoor classrooms are full of provocations, areas intentionally designed for exploration, and learning opportunities that intrigue and delight children. Each unique environment is separate from the other developmental groups, allowing it to be appropriately safe, yet challenging. 

Our Teachers

Our low teacher-child ratio allows teachers to offer loving, individualised care to all children, as well as provide fun and engaging activities that support emerging skills.
