Our Rooms

Our purpose-built learning environment is divided into six smaller classrooms. Our indoor classrooms are sound proofed, well-resourced and filled with inspiring spaces created by the children and teachers. Our expansive and meticulously designed outdoor gardens and play spaces are segregated into three play grounds: one shared by the two Nursery classrooms; the second which is shared between the Toddlers and Preschool 1 classrooms; and the third and largest shared by Preschool 2 and Kindy classrooms.
