Our Mission

We are committed to creating positive learning environments for young children and their families.

Open honest communication, collaboration and consultation are central to our philosophy.

We value diversity, integrity and excellence and strive to support, empower and inspire.

Our Philosophy

We aspire to offer positive, interest based and inspirational learning environments for young children and their families within a home-based model of education and care.  We believe that this extension of home, family and community provides a supportive and nurturing foundation to each child’s journey in lifelong learning. 

We believe that children learn best through play and we are committed to delivering engaging learning environments which inspire, challenge and nurture children.  

Wcelebrate the uniqueness of every family. We acknowledge the role parents and families play as the child’s first and most important teacher and we strive to work in partnership with families to supportempower and inspire.  

We acknowledge that it takes a community to raise a child and invest in engaging learning and positive relationships as the foundations of success.
