Our fun and enriching programs are all about:
Making new friends
When kids meet each other for the first time, new bonds are formed that make their transition to big school so much easier – it’s all about familiar faces and a sense of belonging
Building life skills
New experiences and shared challenges build confidence and resilience – which is fundamental to how kids look at the world, socialise and learn
Having caring and nurturing grownups around you means all the difference – our educators make sure your child is encouraged to flourish and have fun, every step of the way
We know fun plays a huge factor in positive learning and development. Our programs are designed with the child’s needs and voice at the forefront.
Turning a big step into a little one
Starting school with familiar faces, comfortable environments and positive anticipation helps make that big step a much smaller one!

Give your child a head start
Did you know that the moment January hits, your child can attend the school holiday program at your local school?
Attending our Summer Holiday Programs can support your child in establishing friends at the program and give them a head start to the school year before it has even started!
