The Pre-Prep have access to our beautiful yard providing endless opportunities for physical play and development.
The children engage in many indoor and outdoor experiences and activities, such as water and sand play, the children are involved in gardening and looking after their own little vegetable patch and learn to care for their environment and world around them. Our home corner and dramatic play area comes alive as the children engage in many make believe and real life role play scenarios. An endless variety of arts and crafts, music and dance and much more is offered to the children to allow their creativeness to grow and flourish.
Children are also provided with opportunities in language and literacy skills, mathematical learning and concepts, science and scientific experiments, along with early learning geography and computer development skills
Our educators plan and program towards your child’s learning and development. Staff support the children to build on these skills, which in turn enables the children to learn to cooperate with others, express ideas and investigate problem solving skills and solutions. This of course is all learnt through play based interactions and through the child’s interests, abilities and ideas.

Little big sports- Soccer
We offer families to select soccer as an extra-curricular activity to provide their child with a range of different experiences. Soccer is offered as a free trial to all new children, then $10 weekly on a Thursday morning if your child would like to participate. Soccer teaches your child a range of ball skills, develops their gross motor development, and encourages children to work as a team. This is a great experience for all children involved.
We offer Japanese lessons every Friday morning. One of our educators is from Japan and teachers the children about their culture, food, language and art. The children immerse themselves into the language and develop a lifelong knowledge of a beautiful culture within the world.
