Our 3 – 4 year old children are busy developing the skills they’ll need when they begin Prep. Our Approved Kindergarten Program enables our children to develop their confidence and abilities while still having lots of fun! Through ongoing observations our Educators create programs that cater for each child’s developmental needs and interests.
From the moment I walked through the doors the atmosphere is warm and inviting. Staff are kind, thoughtful, energetic and professional. They have a genuine care and respect for the children. I found the centre to be well up to date with their use of technology and security and was extra impressed with the Centre's cleanliness and professionalism. The chef makes lovely food and I can see my baby really enjoying eating everything in sight. I love and look forward to receiving my baby’s daily updates on their app. The Centre has incredible outdoor spaces including for young babies. I like that the babies can mix with the older children in different areas of the Centre. As a first time mum to an 8-month girl, I trust that my baby is safe and in good hands. I cannot recommend the Centre highly enough.
What a wonderful caring place, the staff have gone out of their way to make us feel supported and welcome, Thank you
After 10 years at Piptree there are still many familiar faces from back then. A testament to a great centre
