Our Centre

Adventure Park

We have a state of the art indoor/outdoor area which the children love. In the climate that Queenstown has, cold winters and hot summers, we thought it would be a great innovation to have an Adventure Park. This large space has a climbing wall, stage, trampoline, dance floor and plenty of room to run. It also has large sliding doors that open up into our outdoor playground and makes for great flow.

Sustainability

We take pride in caring for the world that was created for us. The children and teachers are environmentally aware and have a passion to care for the planet. We have a worm farm that the children take responsibility for by feeding and taking care of them. The children are also experts at planting, watering and eating our fruit and vegetable garden. We are supportive of cloth nappies if you choose for your child to wear them.
