Setting the stage for children to think, act and create

The centre has an atmosphere in which children feel happy and supported, this is made possible through:


Creating a sense of belonging where children feel happy to engage with others and are offered meaningful and constructive praise.


Self expression and creativity are actively encouraged.

Reggio Emilia

Small group projects where children are driven by their interests and enjoy endless ways to express themselves.

Peaceful Environment

A peaceful, tranquil, rich environment which is recognised for its potential to inspire children.

Dramatic play

Where children learn about themselves and the world, a chance for young minds to solve problems, coordinate and cooperate.

Dream and Imagine

Time to dream and imagine, to plan, to try, to change directions, to start over, to really become engrossed.

Loving, Caring and Dedicated Staff

Educators who act as guides, mentors and partners, who nurture and support children’s learning and wellbeing.

Children 3-4’s

Achieving more authentic learning outcomes for the children from a flow curriculum which creates a freedom and passion through learning experiences.
