The preschool room involves a structured routine that will prepare your child for ‘Big school’ Our focus is on play based learning where exploration is encouraged. We believe that children are active learners, the concept of active learners comes from the belief that children learn from personal interaction with ideas, direct experiences with physical objects and application of logical thinking to these experiences.Our planning and practices focus on Aister & Siolta for quality curriculum planning.
