What we offer

We cater to 5 – 12 year old children in a safe, nurturing environment. Our programme is fun and exciting, offering arts, crafts, cooking, games, sports and much more. Children have opportunities to try new things, expand their interests and skills and also to have free time, choosing how they wish to spend their recreational hours.


We provide a healthy, nutritious breakfast and afternoon tea, we see the children safely on and off the school buses and provide a safe, fun and dynamic environment for children. We cater to children’s individual needs including dietary and medical needs and we are wheelchair accessible.


During the school holidays, our programme includes interesting and exciting excursions and incursions and children have great holiday experiences. We also open on most state school pupil free days, for families’ convenience.
