Community engagement

A child’s early years are their most important. They are forming and gathering the major part of their knowledge, beliefs, ideas, attitudes and perceptions. We believe parents, caregivers and families are the most influential people in a child’s life. We aim to work together to nurture your child’s dispositions for learning.

Please spend time at the Centre if you can. Join an activity or share some knowledge with others. Please feel free to talk to staff anytime.
