With multiple dedicated indoor playscapes – featuring climbing structures, sandpits, soccer area, basketball space, bike track and alfresco dining area – children have ample space to explore, create and lead their own play. Our three age-based indoor spaces are designed to encourage children to learn and grow, at their age and stage of development, in a secure ‘home away from home’ environment. 

We have been in the Market Street community for 10 years and we enjoy connecting with our local community through planned excursions and community activities that build on the children’s curriculum and interests.
