Why Choose Us

Our Pre-School.
Our Family.
Our Community.

For many children, especially those who are attending an educational setting for the first time, the beginning of their pre-school experience (in either program), can be a worrying time. It is quite normal for the children (and parents) to feel anxious when leaving the family, even for a short time, so PLEASE do not be too concerned if your child seems reluctant to be left at the beginning of the session. Very often, a tearful child upon arrival will have settled in very well, laughing and joining with other children. Staff are sensitive to an unsettled child and will endeavor to help by formulating individual plans and strategies to help this adjustment period as well as comfort and care.

All children are individual and react in varying ways.

For this vital reason, both 3 and 4 year old programs help the children to develop basic attitudes and skills that are developmentally appropriate to each individual’s age and stage. This is achieved through careful observations and assessing where the children are functioning and then planning for each, as well as the group as a whole, as we guide them through their experiences.

Throughout the year, the children may be taken outside the kindergarten on excursions in order to extend the educational program being offered. 

Of course, no child may be taken outside the Pre-school by staff, without the written consent from parent/guardian.

Several incursions are planned, where entertainers or educational experts may come in to show the children their area of interest. This can be in the form of displays, music, drama/movement. This also assists the children to get used to new people coming into the kindergarten. 


It is important to note that any such experiences are inclusive of fees paid. We have an Open door policy where we welcome everyone that is able to come in at any time to view the kindergarten, ask questions and observe the session.
