The Early Years are a very important time for development and preparing for future education. We believe children learn and develop when exposed to a positive, happy, engaging and stimulating environment. We provide a child centered curriculum, and developmentally appropriate educational materials and equipment. A quality preschool education provides activities that encourage children to learn through a balance of pre-literacy and numeracy activities, structured free choice, and hands-on experiences.
