Please check out our facebook page for up to date information on what's happening at the centre.

We are privately owned and managed. This means that our owners are intimately involved in the centre and are far more motivated to make sure its children, parents and staff are the number one priority.


Many practices that are common in child care are specifically avoided. For example, a 25% discount is provided for public holidays and general holidays. Also, families can swap days where ever possible if their child is sick or can't make it for a particular reason.
