Preschool and Early Childhood Learning


Our preschool and early childhood learning programs have been designed to engage children in a culturally safe learning environment whilst embracing and celebrating the cultural diversity of Aboriginal people.

How We Learn Together

Using resources and activities that are both sensory and tactile, children develop their cognitive, fine and gross motor skills.

Through inquisitive and independent learning children can make their individual connections to reach their full potential.
