Philosophy

The centre’s philosophy is based around the concept that children learn through play.

We believe that we should emphasise and recognize the family, the individual ability and skill of each child and the richness of the environment and natural surroundings.

We believe it is of utmost importance to nurture and educate the children in our care through the development of trust, security and loving relationships.

Our philosophy is founded on the knowledge that early childhood development focuses on the social, emotional, cognitive, physical and aesthetic development of the individual child.
