Your child's education

We understand that the best way for a child to learn is through discovery, and this is best achieved by providing ample opportunities for extended play.

Our program:

  • Values and supports the importance of play in an educational setting
  • Supports the needs and interests of the individual within a group setting
  • Provides fun and varied experiences in a safe and stimulating learning environment
  • Promotes independence within a supportive, caring routine
  • Promotes the importance of developing new skills and making new friendships
  • Has a focus upon school readiness and general life skills, which is fostered by being part of Caloundra City Private School
  • Allows adequate opportunities for a balance of planned experiences, child-initiated discovery and necessary routine activities.
