Our structure

As a charity and a community service run by a Board, we have strict requirements we need to meet, which ensures that the quality of the service we provide is of the highest standards of care and education. We also constantly review our fee structure, and accept all subsidies available to parents, so that you never have to compromise the quality of your childcare.
