Our dedicated and qualified team include Educators who hold either a Bachelor of Teaching in Early Childhood, Diploma in Children’s Services or Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care.

We have higher than regulated ratios for the children with extra staff in the rooms to assist with the implementation and delivery of a dynamic and innovative program. Higher ratios also allow for the provision of individual high quality care.

The Owners are the Directors. Sharon and Kelly are onsite to oversee and manage the smooth delivery of our programs. Sharon and Kelly are passionate about building relationships with every family and the broader community.

We believe, ongoing staff training is essential to ensure Educators are up to date with industry changes and to maintain the skills necessary to implement and provide exceptional experiences for all children.
