Preschool is a great way to help prepare your child for school, or to help you decide if they are ready to start.

We offer a structured day to provide a gentle introduction to what is required of them at “big school”. Through our play based program, they will discover that learning is fun and will be ready for the next big thing : )

The children participate in group times, including news, music, languages and fundamental movement skills, as well as lots of free play and outdoor adventures. We have a beautiful big playground and the church grounds to explore!

If you’re wondering about whether this might be the right option for your child and family, please contact us on [email protected]

We run tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30am and would love to show you around.
