Playgroup provides a safe, caring and stimulating environment where children and parents/caregivers can interact and share with each other, enjoying quality time together in a supportive environment that values Christian community and Christian education.

Playgroup

Our Playgroup provides a place for future students and their parents/caregivers to begin their journey and partnership with our school. It provides a platform for them to become familiar with the school, and to experience its unique atmosphere. Importantly, Playgroup helps to prepare preschool-aged children for the Junior Primary.
