Together we will provide a positive, happy, stimulating and secure environment for your child to 'explore, engage and experience' - develop and learn.
Starting Preschool (SA Govt site, opens in a new window) is a big step in your child's life - making new friends - sharing toys and ideas - coping with frustrations and finding out and remembering where things are.
These are some of the skills they will learn during their time at Preschool.
Our Playgroup is run every Friday from 9.30am to 11.30am.
