Our Centre Goals
To create an environment where children of all ages, genders, cultures and backgrounds feel safe, secure, happy and loved.
To encourage children to develop by hands on experience where teachers guide and ‘play’ becomes an education in itself.
To foster individual development by planning programs that are the result of individual observations and child initiated needs and interests.
Our centre provides four separate educational rooms. Each room is specifically designed and resourced to suit the needs of each age group, with a particular focus in the Giraffe Room on life skills development and school transition programs.
