A unique centre providing education for

babies, toddlers and preschool aged children

Community based not for profit since 1986.

Funded by NSW Dept of Community Services.

We acknowledge the original custodians of this land, the Biripi people on which we learn and work together and commit to build relationships for all Aboriginal people in our area.

Our focus is to continue the holistic approach to education and relationships that past management and educators have valued. To value the connectedness of mind, body and spirit as learning pathways in a peaceful caring environment. An environment with many opportunities for each child to use one hundred different ways to make meaning of their world.
