From a lick of paint to developing learning spaces, we’ve really created improvements to be proud of.

It looks and feels bright and airy; the perfect place for children to learn, play and create. You’ll also notice that we’ve invested heavily in new furniture throughout to ensure all our little learners can sit comfortably, as well as new themes and lighting in every room. Rather than simply redecorate, we’ve created an environment that helps stimulate, focus and engage. And because we know the value of learning through explorative play, we’ve extended our toy collection to include some of the very best educational toys on the market to make sure we cram as much learning into the day as possible! Improvements don’t stop there. Our new computer lab will be opening soon which means children in our programs are able to learn computer skills and innovate using the best information technology equipment in the area.
