We know every child and their family and recognise the trust and responsibility each parent places in us. We are an experienced team of educators in Early Childhood yet continue to develop professionally for the benefit of the children in our care. We provide inspiring play spaces for children to explore and continue to look for ways we can grow as individuals and as a service.

A holistic program encompassing all areas of a child’s development and readily available to you online! We want to share your child’s experiences and development as it happens. Our secure online documentation platform allows us to communicate with families each day about your child’s routine, achievements, events and activities they have participated,  important services messages and more!

Fundraising – We love to give back to the community we feel so fortunate to be part of. Partnerships with The Rotary Club Engadine, Dandelion Support Network, Children’s Hospital and Cancer Council raising funds for research.
