Our Policies

We proudly stand as an Independently run preschool, governed by a Committee of Management, comprised of parents attending the pre-school.

Our program is based on the involvement and co-operation between parents, children, teaching staff and the Committee.

This enables us to determine what programs to offer and maintain our staff. Through consultation with all our families both current and future enrolments, we have been able to adjust to the many changes that have occurred in this field, always maintaining our goals and most importantly continue to provide a quality service at a reasonable and affordable cost to families of young children.

Our Pre-School.
