Children have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of experiences, carefully planned by staff to enhance and maximise the potential and development of each child.
As the preschool operates in a large community hall and outdoor play area, the children spend considerable time interacting with all 39 other children. Whilst your child is assigned to one teacher, the programme allows for your child to have interaction with all four staff members each day.
