From infancy to pre-school, it is very important that children are given the opportunities to experience an environment that enables them to develop naturally and consistently. A child develops through positive adult interaction, opportunities for learning, diverse environments, nurturing and developmentally appropriate programming. Our pre-school childcare uses the Pinnacle Curriculum, which is a creative, hands-on curriculum that prepares children for progression and transition into kindergarten. Children also focus on values, manners, problem solving skills and social interaction.
