- First of all, we hope that you and your child enjoy the time that you spend with us.
- We are a team of very well qualified and experienced teachers, with over 66 years experience between us all.
- We aim to foster a love of learning and encourage the children to use their imaginations, be curious and discover all kinds of new things about the world in which they live.
- Our goal is to have all of our children fully prepared and equipped to make the transition to school an easy and pleasant one for them, when they turn five.
We are a Christian centre and have teachings from the Bible, celebrate Christian events and use Christian songs and stories with the children. We operate from a Christian world view and weave Christian ethics into all that we do. For example, Christian values such as love, joy, peace, patience, perseverance, kindness (Gal 5:22) and so on are woven into our teaching programmes on a daily basis.
