Our Philosophy

We believe;

Each child is an individual and every effort is taken to encourage self assurance and confidence of those in our care.

All children should have access to quality child care which aims to reflect their special skills, talents, cultural values and individual needs.

Our role is to seek ways to support family life, to provide constructive play situations for children, and to generate creative ideas for leisure time.

Children learn through play which is essential to physical, intellectual, social and emotional development.
