We are proud of retaining long term, loyal staff and have two full time staff members who provide relief for Programming and leave to ensure continuity of care for our children. We have a full time Director and part time Office Administration/Bookkeeper.

Daily routine

Our program for each room takes into account the need and importance for indoor and outdoor play, projects of learning, group times and structured learning experiences, sleep and rest time. In the early mornings and late afternoons, the children in the two older groups play together. All rooms are together for the first and last half hour of the day for family grouping and ratio’s.
