About us

Our childcare services place parents and families at the core of the quality service we provide.  Parents/ guardians are the primary educators and caregivers for their children, and our service reflects that.

We provide an environment that will enable each child to develop to their own best potential.  Staff are encouraged to recognise the individual development stages of each child.  The environment will be prepared and equipment provided to stimulate children at each stage of their development

We warmly welcome discussion with you on your child’s activities and how he/she is progressing.  We strive to facilitate your child’s learning and development in partnership with you.
