It is a real honour to be recognised as the top centre nationwide.

Our team is passionate about the role they play in children's lives and are dedicated to providing a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment. We value integrity, excellence and respect - all of which are evident in everything we do. We are all enthusiastic advocates for children and the early learning opportunities we can provide for them on a daily basis. We strongly advocate for the importance of male role models in early learning and continue to support all of our educators to have a voice in our programs and environments. It is through this shared passion that we are able to implement exceptional educational practices and provide programs based on each child’s interest and needs. We look forward to continuing on our journey and providing the best environments that support our centre community and foster the love of learning in all of our children. We are all here to make a difference, with big ambitions to create successful communities and leaders of the future.”
