Our Groups & Workshops
Our varied educational group and workshop options are designed to meet the needs of your whole family as well as your PCD student.
Our playgroups are for children aged 24 -36 months and focus on play and positive social interactions. We offer small class sizes and an integrated experience (with children from the community and our Early Intervention Program). This integration allows children to gain a greater acceptance for one another’s strengths, differences and abilities.
A child’s first opportunity for a positive educational experience, setting the stage for a life-long love of learning.
