We believe children learn by observing, experimenting and listening. Our teachers use co-constructing and scaffolding teaching strategies.
We are a teacher qualified based centre so our teachers are qualified, or in training.
At Plum Tree Preschool, we believe a foundation in Christian faith will strengthen each child for life. We are inter-denominational and accept children and families from all walks of life.
We use a Reggio Emilia approach, encouraging the "process" of thinking and learning. To support this we provide a stimulating environment that encourages meaningful, active and interactive learning opportunities.
What makes us different?
We specialise in quality child care and education. We strive to provide the best start possible for your child, hiring a qualified and caring team in a Christian based setting.
