Our Early Learning & Care Centres

Our Early Learning Centres are designed for creativity, fun, laughter and enjoyment! We believe that children have an unquenchable curiosity and are intrigued by anything and everything. They are eager explorers with an intense desire to make sense of their world!

We respect and value all children for their unique qualities, individuality, diversity, interests, abilities and characteristics. We support our children as they begin their educational journey so they grow and develop into strong and confident beings. We pride ourselves in providing a supportive and safe
environment, where play and discovery allows children to become skillful with their bodies, explore new interests, problem solve and think creatively.

We welcome children and families of all backgrounds regardless of their choice of primary school.

How we're nurturing the next generation ...

All our centres provide stimulating, supportive and safe environments, where play and discovery allow for children to learn, problem solve, think creatively and grow. Our parents feel happy and secure knowing their child is in a warm, friendly and welcoming environment that promotes a sense of family.


A warm, home-like atmosphere of inclusive play-based learning is at the core of our philosophy and practice. We believe that children thrive and learn best when they feel safe, supported and respected for who they are, and when their learning is guided by their own interests and choices.



Children’s learning becomes meaningful when they are free to learn at their own pace and in their own way. We value intentional teaching and interactions where educators bring a rich knowledge base to support children to move onto new and higher levels of understanding.
