Experienced and caring staff offer resources on child care and pre-school learning programs. The Centre provides support to families and offering a broad range of services that will ensure that children from birth to 6 years of age receive the best possible opportunities. This is achieved through a strong partnership between the Centre, the school, child care centres, community agencies, organizations, and more.
