We provide best practice in early childhood education for the benefit of the child, the family and our community
The image of the child
The child affects the decisions we take every day. The child’s motivation and capability impact our decisions to help development
Enriching their experiences
The wider the range of alternatives we offer, the more intense the child’s emotions and the richer its experiences are – Reggio Emilia Approach
Play is our job
When we treat play as seriously as it deserves, we are helping them feel the joy that is found in their creative spirit – Fred Rogers
Our job is to create contexts
Children are naturally creative. It is our job to give them the freedom, materials and space to let their creativity blossom to its full potential – Jean Van’t Hul
This is how I learn!
There is no just thing as “just playing”… This is how I learn.
I love my carer
Children learn best when they like their carer and their carer likes them. We are in the business of loving kids so much that they want to learn from us – Gordon Neufeld
When I play
Play is creativity, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and having fun – Mary Lou Cook
We don’t do it
We never help children with a task at which she feels she can succeed – Maria Montessori
It’s a risky business
The more risks we allow our children to take, the better they learn to take care of themselves – Roald Dahl
It’s all about fun
There is no right or wrong when it comes to making art. Making sure that the child has fun is the most important part. Splash a little paint… draw a little line… just make sure we have fun – each time and every time!
Who is your child?
Your child is creative, curious, flexible, persistent and independent… with a tremendous spirit of adventure and a love of play – Henri Matisse
My scribble is not a scribble! It is a story, a name, a word, a masterpiece!
Our childcare centres go above and beyond the minimum requirements not only in staff ratios, but also the level of qualifications held by each carer, so it’s worthwhile discussing this with our centre manager.
All our services are licenced and registered. You can check if the centre is registered on the Directorate for Quality and Standards in Education (DQSE) website.
Our meaning of care
We help children understand to care for ourselves, for the others and for the environment
We are open with families
Our care must be in partnership with families for a richer learning experience. We encourage open and frequent dialogue and ensure that we address family concerns quickly. We appreciate that parents are entrusting to us with their precious children and promise to treat them as our own
