We run educational programs based on the children's interests, scaffolding their learning through intentional teaching moments.

The childcare program is actively involved in the National Quality Frameworks and meets all standards. We work with the school to support the children and their families using the Early Years Learning Framework and My Time, Our Place OSHC framework. We are committed to the provision of high quality care. We employ qualified, experienced, Early Childhood Educators.
