We welcome children aged 2-5yrs and accept funding for three year olds, offering half or full days to suit parents requirements.
“Play builds the kind of free-and-easy, try-it-out, do-it-yourself character that our future needs.”
James L. Hymes, Jr
We aim to nurture the ‘whole child’ – body, spirit and mind. To this end, our sessions focus as much attention on how children learn as on what they are learning. Children are encouraged to be ambitious and creative, to explore their learning in depth and push themselves to expand in a wide variety of pursuits.
We understand that for children to succeed they need to learn to sustain their individual curiosity and so we embrace innovative approaches to teaching them. We seek to support all individuals to follow their own passions, whatever they may be, and so build their self-esteem and assurance. We want your child to have memorable experiences on their journey to becoming confident, life-long learners and leaders.
