“Building a strong foundation for learning, fostering meaningful relationships, and providing a safe and happy environment”.

Our purpose is to build a foundation for learning that will enable the children in our care to be life-long learners. We will provide opportunities for the children to explore and discover the world around them, and develop a sense of wonder and respect for their environment. We will help the children to foster meaningful relationships that will encourage empathy and an understanding that we are all created unique in our own special way.
