Since June 2016, the children have been examining the world of small with the Preschool’s 2 new microscopes!

There are unlimited opportunities for discovery of the natural world in the kindergarden’s front and back yard natural settings.

 

Outdoor amphitheatre

IMG_6917 In March 2015, an exciting new development involved the building of an outdoor amphitheatre. We believe this project will provide a vital and unique outdoor environment for learning. It will support physical and mental development and cultivate positive connections with nature for all the children.
