Our child initiated, play based program stimulates children’s learning, exploration and social connections.
Our Kindergarten program (for 3 and 4 year olds) uses a play based approach that emphasises learning through exploration and investigation. The program encourages children to be creative in all areas, whether it is problem solving or the expressive arts. It also encourages lateral thinking and positive social interactions.
Our program will run within long day care hours.
