We are committed to a holistic approach to learning that is fostered in an environment that promotes and supports all aspects of a child’s development. Our qualified and experienced staff are dedicated to providing each child with personalised education to fully prepare them for primary school. And their care is genuine ensuring your child feels nurtured and safe.  Some of our educators are multi-lingual adding another cultural dimension to our centre which can also be of assistance to parents whose first language is not English.  We’re happy to be able to offer help in the following languages – Indonesian, Balinese, Spanish, Japanese, Tagalog, Thai, Greek, Serbian, Macedonian, Russian, Croatian and Romanian.
