This ensures that children can develop their social skills by making new friends of their own age. The play equipment provided is both fun and educational, and appropriate for their age group. We also have a large well-equipped garden, with free-flow access for children to enjoy the outdoors. The garden is split into 2 areas; one for the Joey’s and one for the Wallaroo’s and Kangaroo’s.
