The education of a very small child does not aim at preparing him for school, but for life


Centre Info

We are so privileged to have our learning centre situated in an iconic historical house in Invercargill.

We are so privileged to have our learning centre situated in an iconic historical house in Invercargill. The babies and toddlers enjoy their time in the original sitting room and the older children make great use of the Ball Room.

It truly is a home away from home with a mix of the beautiful old features and modern conveniences. 

We have an amazing outdoor area complete with a vegetable garden for the children to access at any time. We have an enchanted garden area, a huge sandpit and an enormous gravel pit all set amongst and old English cottage garden. An outdoor stage designed for our drama enthusiasts and a dedicated family play area, art space and library.

The jewel in our crown is the space. Our centre is limited to 50 children so we can preserve the freedom we believe children need to learn, grow and to explore naturally in a calm and relaxed environment.

Our special people include Paulette our chef, who prepares gold standard meals and morning and afternoon tea daily for and with the children. Sandy our gardener, who comes in during session hours to work with those children who love the outdoors and gardening. Then we have our own health and safety advisor Sharon, who ensures our centre is always well-presented. 

Rose our Centre Manager and Nicola our 2IC will take care of all of your queries and they also lead the teaching team.
