We are an interesting group of little people.
We tend to build gardens, and cars, and whole cities (out of mud and play dough, of course), and specifically from our own imagination.
Our educators help align us... as, in, keep us in check. We can actually count and often spell...maybe even cook...
We are toilet trained. Ooh, that's a goodie.
And we grow into imperfect beings... the ones you love and cherish.
And, yes, we learn, we have manners, we are well trained, in all matters, including the possible poop situation.
We eat REALLY good food. (Some of which we have learnt to grow ourselves)
Our education model is based on both Traditional and Montessori teaching, being interactive, child focused, yet structured.
We rock, right on back to Mother Nature.
Enjoy your journey, with your little being, and help us all to create a Beautiful World.

We encourage daily learning through supervised indoor and outdoor activities, including early morning free play, where children choose their activity. This may include playdough, doll's corner, blocks, threading... different activities are offered daily.
Breakfast is served between 7:00 and 8:15, after which children are gathered together in all age groups for a morning ring, where they share stories, and engage with their teacher about their experiences, and reinforce the weekly Theme.
Manners are encouraged, with sharing and caring being a strong focus. Listening and taking turns is promoted.
Hitting, biting and shouting is a no-no in our school.
Free play outdoors encourages responsibility for each other and selves. Children clean up after messy play, and put away the toys they have utilised.
Hats and sunblock are compulsory during outdoor activities.
Fresh fruit and Elgin Iced Tea is provided daily. We request a healthy snack be sent daily with your child, which is shared with their little friends. Not only does this encourage parent involvement, but promotes an interest in different foods. While we are aware of all children's special diets, we request that parents take note of Nut allergies.
Children gather their belongings, ready for hometime, and then listen to a daily story, read by their teacher.
The Lunch Bunch prepare for their cooked meal with a regular 'wee and wash', and sitting at the table, where Thanks are given for our food.
Individually marked mattresses are laid out for nap time.
