Santosh Kumari

I’ve been working with children for over 25 years. It gives me so much joy to watch children develop and grow.

I hold an Advanced Diploma of Children’s Services, a Certificate IV in Business, a Certificate IV in Frontline Management, Leadership diploma  and I’m currently studying to become an early childhood teacher.

I’m very proud of my team of educators. Our philosophy is that children learn best through play in a friendly, caring environment. We ensure children are exposed to a variety of wonderful learning experiences to help them develop at their own pace.

Please come and experience our ultra-modern premises with plenty of outdoor play areas located in the heart of the city. The rooms have been specially designed to enhance your child’s learning experience.

We look forward to meeting your family and welcoming you into ours.
