With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including an indoor/outdoor program, natural play structures, and a sustainability program, children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled centre also has herb and vegetable gardens, woodwork areas, fortes, worm farms, a bark pit, repurposed materials, and a range of age-specific ateliers.

Children get out and about on excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We visit locations such as our local library, Bunnings, Woolworths, a nearby nature reserve, and the local college, who we have a great relationship with.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays. Our community-minded team also organise regular visits from Duncan Smith, from the Wiradjuri Echoes, who does various activities with the children.

Our on-site cook, Nirosha – who won ACT Cook of the Year in 2018 – prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. The children and Educators often collect herbs and vegetables from the gardens to add to the daily meals and use in cooking classes.
