The Programme:

Our programme aims to promote the development of the whole child through the incorporation of a child-centred program that caters for the development of the individual child and builds on already acquired skills while promoting areas of need. The preschool welcomes input from parents in its educational planning


Play is considered a tool for children's learning. Children make sense of the world in which they live, about themselves, their surroundings and how all these are interrelated through play. Play assists in cultivating and refining all areas of development. The centre prides itself in its diversity. The enrolment comprises of many Pacific cultural groups as well as children with special needs. The Centre is licensed by the Fiji Ministry of Education.
