Each and every day is filled with fun and play with planned intentional teaching happening. Your child's learning is done so effectively they don't even know it is happening.
The nicest thing about enrolling your children at this service is they will be happy and well cared for. Your children will be loved and cared for each day just the way you do it at home.
At the end of the day you know that even though they are pleased to see you, your children will also want to spend more time with their educators. It is a great comfort to know that your children are loved and protected the way you want them to be.
The service provides everything for your child except nappies and a hat. Sunscreen, tissues, fruit and drinks are all included in your fees. Meals and snacks are all prepared by a qualified cook in-house. Please bring bottles and formula if your child needs them.
There is no fundraising and parents don't pay for anything more after paying the weekly fees.
For more information about the operations of the services please read the Parent Handbook.
