With three dedicated outdoor play areas, two age-based and the third a shared space for all, children have plenty of space for creativity, exploration, and self-lead play. Children can enjoy our bike track, worm farm and our wonderful vegetable garden! Our seven age-based indoor spaces are designed around natural elements and encourage children in their growth and learning. We enjoy our connection with the local community. Our excursions and community activities are based around the children’s interests and learning.
